It's one of my greatest dreams to write a historical romance but alas, the details that kind of novel requires is very intimidating. So for now I can only satisfy myself with snippets such as this one I'm about to share.
P.S. For those who don't know, Lilac in NNL has a tendency to daydream about being a lady in the Regency period, with Nick as the duke.
The museum was crowded with faces both familiar and unfamiliar, but no one bothered to speak with her and she was happy it was so. She could spend hours looking at these paintings, could lose herself in imagining that she would be in one of its paint-brushed worlds. There, she would be a beautiful girl, one with friends and suitors aplenty---
“Milady,” a voice suddenly whispered devilishly from somewhere behind her.
---and certainly she would not be pursued by a duke whose motives she still could not comprehend.
Could she pretend she had not heard him?
“If you do not look at me, my darling girl, you will regret it.” But the way the duke said the words, it was as if he was not delivering a threat but the most tempting of promises.
She muttered crossly, “I am not your darling girl.” But even so, she was already turning, her heart started beating madly, knowing once again she would be gazing upon the duke’s coldly beautiful face.
