What this entails: I have a small snippet from The Governess that I will share below; but in it, I don't have a good enough reason, yet, (and this is where you come in!) for the male hero to be at a certain person's home for tea. I would love to have you come up with a great reason for me.
The prize? Well...I might be open for suggestions on this, but so far, I've come up with an idea that YOU might be able to rename this lady character for me. Is that a good prize? I don't know. I'm open. I thought about a signed copy of The Governess, but it's not out yet. If that is better, let me know. Whoever's suggestion I implement, we'll talk okay. :)
Here's the snippet I need reworked with a 'reason' for Creighton to be at Amelia Hansen's house:
Creighton could not believe how Miss Amelia had wiggled her way into getting him over for tea. She was a conniver, just as Janese had been. Maybe that was why they had been best friends. All that he knew was, at that moment, if she touched him once more, he would leave.
Her hair glistened, her hands looked invitingly soft, and her gown was a luscious pale green. She was delectable.
But not to his palate.
“Your home and lands are gorgeous as always, Creighton, darling, I must say. You always do keep a good house. Your servants are devoted to you, in spite of the gossips. How do you do it?”
“Uh…,” Creighton lifted his teacup to his lips not knowing how to comment.
Amelia’s brother answered for him. “He does not do it at all, Amelia. He has an extensive staff to do that for him.”
“You are quite wrong, Felix. Have you not ever seen Creighton out working with his tenants? It is a sight to behold!” She
smirked alluringly at the earl, her own lustful thinking blatant to all who listened to her.
She is appalling.
And then she touched him…
