The line in question–
“No, darling, I don’t mind in the least that you’ve quite ruined my prospects. I always wanted to be made a laughingstock in front of the ton.”
— comes from page 56, line 5 of the paperback edition of The Seduction of the Crimson Rose, as part of Mary Alsworthy’s internal monologue. Kudos to everyone who got it! It’s a tricky one. For a moment, even I thought it might have been Emerald Ring.
The winner of the very impromptu, spur of the moment mini-contest is… Veronika! Congrats, Veronika. If you email me, I’ll send you your copy of Blood Lily.
More impromptu contests coming soon!
