EXCERPT

Richard approached and stood behind her, looking past her shoulder. “I suppose it can be. Do you want to talk?”

 “Not really.”

 Richard remained quiet, aching to touch her and offer her the physical comfort he believed she craved, but he waited for her to give a signal.

 “I think today went well,” she began, still staring. “Mr. Ruston and Mr. Foster have guards and they’ve promised to keep shipping coal.”

 “They did.”

 “And we’ve got an escort to meet with the coal mine owners in York.”

 “We’ve got to be on our guard.”

 “How so?”

 “I saw Jonas talking to them and it didn’t sit right with me.”

 “Why not?”

 “I can’t trust his motives or intentions. They were questionable the last time he visited.”

 She turned around to face him again, but Richard kept his hands clasped behind his back, straining his will power. He wanted nothing better than to touch her all over.

 “Who is Mr. Brandon? The man I gave my scent to?”

 “He’s a reporter from the future. I don’t trust him much, but I think there’s something physically wrong with him. He told me he felt time displacement the last time the machine was used and the Professor sent him back to study his vitals.”

 “I take it that’s unusual?” she questioned.

 “Yes.” He paused. “He promised to keep an eye on Jonas, but I need to watch out for him.”

 “Good.”

 “Why do you look so withdrawn? I hate seeing you like this. Is it Augustus?” Richard asked.

 “Some. He’s out of his element. This is all new to him. It will take him time, but I believe we’ve laid a foundation to build a relationship on.”

 “And your father?”

 She raised her hand, cupping her cheek. “I don’t know what I’ll do without him.”

 “You’ve got to think about that possibility. I don’t mean to sound insensitive, but we’ve both seen him. He’s not getting better.”

 She hung her head. “No, he’s not.”

 “I’m so sorry…” His voice broke.

 Jocelyn moved toward him. She wrapped her arms around his waist and rested her head against his chest. “Hold me.”

 Richard’s heart soared with happiness knowing that she reached out for him, because his own willpower was about to break. Then the reality of the situation crashed against him.

Jocelyn Dunkirk is not your typical Victorian lady. She dresses in leather, wears goggles, and is not afraid to get a little grease under her fingernails. Gentlemen avoid her like a dirty rivet.

 Richard Windsor, the Prince of Wales, travels through time to claim Jocelyn’s heart, but if it isn’t one challenge, it’s another. He determines to be a constant, steady presence in her life, hoping to prove he’d make a worthy husband.

 Jocelyn’s facing a bucket full of problems. The prime minister wants her to assist in ending a coal strike before it cripples the nation while her father attempts to recover from a serious injury. Will Jocelyn’s dedication to her country and family ruin the one chance she has at love?

MY REVIEW

Coffee Cup On Wood Table At Sunset Or Sunrise Beach

I read and reviewed this book last year when I hosted Stephanie Buckhart here. I jumped at the chance to host her book again because I’m such of fan of her work. Also, I asked the nice ladies at Goddess Fish if it was okay for me to re-post the original review since there’s always new visitors with whom I wished to share my thoughts on A Lady Never Lies. So there you have it!

Hope you enjoy the tour and if you haven’t yet discovered Stephanie’s talent, this is a great opportunity. Grab a copy today! 😀

5* – Fast-paced read (Originally posted on October 10, 2015)

Well, let me just make something clear from the get go – I’m a total sucker for Time Traveling (HUGE fan of Dr. Who, for instance) and ANYTHING Victorian – mainly romance novels set in that period. That being said, I was thrilled to host this blog tour and very excited about reading ‘A lady Never Lies’.

I make a point of stating all that so that you can understand I had tons of expectations. And Stephanie Buckhart DID NOT disappoint me. I don’t give out spoilers so I won’t go into the details or specifics but I can safely say that people who enjoy extremely well-written stories in the fantasy genre filled with action, twists and turns will be delighted reading this book.

Because I hadn’t read the previous books in the series, I felt there was missing information but that didn’t prevent me from enjoying this book or understanding this story so I didn’t take points off my rating of it.
