It’s that time of year when everyone is filling out their holiday wish lists and then rushing to fill the wish lists of others. And that got us thinking about the Hadley family and what each of them might each add to their own holiday lists this year (if 200 years didn’t separate us, that is.)
Dashiel Thorpe, the Marquess of Eynsford ~ As the pack alpha, Dash has had quite the time keeping up with his three wayward half-brothers. So this year, he’d like a smart phone with GPS tracking to help with that endeavor.
Caitrin, the Marchioness of Eynsford ~ Cait is in need of a few gift certificates to Victoria’s Secret. When one has a Lycan husband who likes to rip one’s clothes off in fits of passion, what’s there to do aside from replace them?
Weston Hadley ~ Weston is in need of a new wallet to hold all the blunt he’s made on his gambling ventures.
Lady Madeline Hadley ~ What do you get the heiress who has it all, up to and including the man of her dreams? Maddie wants for nothing, except perhaps maybe a giant bathtub so she will never have to feel dirty again.
Grayson Hadley ~ Gray would like few very simple bottles of whiskey, because he has more fun pretending to be drunk than he does actually drinking. He spends a lot of money on whiskey he pours into the potted palms instead of drinking. Of course, if anyone wanted to put a potted palm or two in his stocking, he wouldn’t complain.
Liviana Hadley ~ Living so far away from her native New Orleans, Livi does miss more than a thing or two from Louisiana. So this year, she would like some crawfish, jambalaya and, of course, a box of pralines.
Archer Hadley, Viscount Radbourne ~ Archer wants Lady Sophia Cole. Undressed and in his bed. It’s too bad she wants nothing to do with him. He’d settle for a kiss. And the truth about her past.
Violet, Viscountess Radbourne ~ She wants a grand love affair of her own, and lots of and lots of grandchildren to bounce on her knee.
Lady Sophia Cole ~ Poor Sophie. Everything she’s ever had was gambled away by her late-father. Her list would be rather long this year. If she can’t have Bindweed Cottage (which is what she wants more than anything in the world) she’ll settle for Lord Radbourne’s head on a platter.
Lucien Thorpe, the Earl of Brimsworth ~ He wants a new high perch phaeton, so Uncle Gray and Uncle Wes can take him for a ride.
Lady Aurelia Thorpe ~ Little Lia would love a playhouse to put in the courtyard at Eynsford Park, so she can lock her twin brother far away from her for at least a few hours a day.
Eugenia, the Duchess of Hythe ~ Her Grace would like a new punchbowl this year to replace the one that was broken to bits during a freak hail storm inside her ballroom. (That scene can be found in IN THE HEAT OF THE BITE in case you missed it.)
So there’s a peek at the Hadley family’s (and assorted others’) holiday wish list. What item makes the top of your list?
Regency England Has Gone To The Wolves!
It Takes A Beast…
Grayson Hadley is in his own special hell-being treated like a wayward pup by the tutor employed to turn him into a true gentleman. So when he meets a hot-blooded American beauty with the mark of a Lycan, he’s only too glad to slip his leash.
To Bring This Lady To Heel…
Accustomed to running wild in the swamps of Louisiana, Miss Liviana Mayeux is shipped off to her grandfather’s in London to learn a thing or two about polite society. At first she scoffs at the English Lycans’ apparent tameness. Little does Livi realize how very close she is to unleashing the passion that lies just beneath the surface…
