FOREVER A LORD
by Delilah Marvelle
Lady Imogene Norwood lives a sheltered life of quiet respectability and routine…until she meets the wild and broken Lord Atwood. He is wholly unexpected among London’s elite, and the very shy English rose suddenly realizes that a little chaos might just be what her heart desires.
Lord Nathaniel James Atwood doesn’t believe true love exists. Since scandal tore him away from his family at an early age, he has spent his life fighting for what he wants. That attitude has made him a rising star in bare-knuckle boxing, and now leads him back to London to reclaim the life that was stolen from him. But upon meeting the innocent Imogene, his beliefs are trounced…as guarding his heart against her proves to be the fight of his life.
“Marvelle seamlessly weaves two distinct threads into a sizzling yet tender romance…satisfying and worthy of a cheer.”-PW on Forever a Lady
“Marvelle’s story of Radcliff coming to know himself, and Justine’s faith in him, is a quintessential romance.”-Booklist on Prelude to a Scandal
“Marvelle not only crafts highly sensual novels, her innovative ideas and plot twists invigorate the genre.” -RT BookReviews
From the Author
We all carry secrets, be they small or large, and we all carry them for very different reasons. We do it to protect ourselves and/or others. Regardless, a secret isn’t meant to be kept forever. They are meant to be shared with someone we can genuinely trust, so that the burden of the shame we feel by holding onto our secrets can be taken away from our souls. In FOREVER A LORD, welcome to the world of what happens when a secret goes too far and the burden leaches its way into everything. In this particular story, you will meet a bare- knuckle boxer who is on the path of learning that only one thing can save his burdened soul: the genuine love of a good woman. Imogene is my version of what the hero could have never ‘imagined.’ Though Imogene has seen very little of the real world due to her overprotective brother and her illness, it doesn’t make her any less viable. In fact, it enables her to see our hero in a way few can. Our hero, in turn, who never thought himself capable of love, discovers that he is capable of something even better: true love. I believe each of us has a soul mate waiting in the most unexpected of places and it is up to us to know when to cradle that one person who is meant to carry us through life with their unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading about what happens when two very different souls meet and discover their differences is what saves them both.
