Bold, Bad, and Beautiful by Victoria Vane

There’s just something incredibly irresistible about a truly wicked villain – especially when the baddie is also a beauty! 

Here is a little someting I created for your viewing enjoyment – my personal homage to some favorite femme fatales!

In my newly released TREACHEROUS TEMPTATIONS, Lady Barbara Blanchard, (largely inspired by the Marquise de Meurtiel in Dangerous Liaisons) is the ultimate femme fatale. Greedy, wanton, opportunistic, and unscrupulous,  she uses her seductive wiles at every turn.

While she expects to control and manipulate Hadley to achieve her desires, she soon learns that she can no longer control him as she once had. 

Here’s a tiny teaser:h

TREACHEROUS TEMPTATIONS

by Victoria Vane

TreacherousTemptation_cover3BLURB:

A reluctant heiress resigned to her fate … Mary Elizabeth Edwardes has one of the largest fortune’s in England, but has no desire to leave her quiet country existence… and even less to acquire a husband she cannot choose for herself.

A dissolute nobleman bent on retribution … Trapped in a duplicitous existence since scandal destroyed his fortune and family name, Lord Hadley Blanchard has spent the better part of a decade posing as a disaffected exile while spying and seducing in the service of the English Crown.

A dangerous game of seduction, and intrigue … When summoned from abroad by a former lover, Lord Hadley perceives an opportunity for vengeance at last. By employing the full measure of his seductive charm, he woos the ward of the man who destroyed his life, little knowing that winning Mary’s fortune will mean risking his own treacherous heart.
