I just started the third and penultimate book of Jacquie D’s Mayhem at Mayfair series – Seduced at Midnight – and it’s not going too good. I’m not gonna blame the book yet. I just read two books back to back that I really liked – Tempt the Devil by Anna Campbell and Just One of the Guys by Kristin Higgins – and it’s hard to come down from that. I decided to turn to the end to see if there is an excerpt of the last book of the series, poor Logan’s story. You know, the unfortunate slob who got dumped by the heroines in the first two books? Like the good American that I am, I root for the losers.
Anyway, there is and since JacquieD rarely updates her very bare site and you cant even find her at the Avon Authors Forum since she moved to Berkley midseries, I’ll post the excerpt for it from my ebook.

Tempted at Midnight by Jacquie D’Alessandro

A desperate beauty concocts a perfectly outrageous scheme for success—and not only attracts the attention of the Ladies Literary Society of London, but also the last man she’d ever expected to tempt.

Lady Emily Stapleford never dreamed that the burden of saving her family from financial ruin would rest on her lovely, resourceful shoulders. Since she’s only willing to marry for love, and not money, Emily pens a story she hopes will bring her fortune—only to have it rejected by every major publisher. After all, what respectable reader would dare embrace a vampire heroine?

Not to be dissuaded, Emily generates publicity by attracting attention with a vampire masquerade. Overnight London is abuzz with the sightings. With renewed interest in Emily’s book, she’s guaranteed success—if it wasn’t for the mysterious American, Logan Jennsen. He’s on to Emily’s duplicity and he has every intention of using it to his advantage. If only he wasn’t falling in love with this unabashedly creative hothouse flower. And if only he didn’t have a scandalous secret of his own—one that’s putting both their lives in danger…

I held him in thrall, my lips hovering just above his. I could feel his heat, smell his desire, sense his pulse pounding at his throat. Need poured through me at the thought of my fangs puncturing his skin, his hot blood flooding into my mouth. And even though I afforded him the opportunity to push me away, to escape the impossible, dangerous situation in which he found himself, I knew he was exactly where he wanted to be…
