New York City
The amount of female attention her brother garnered never failed to amaze Lucy. Even when he was wearing grubby coveralls and carrying a sack of plumber's tools, girls flocked around Nick as though he were Casanova.
It was about more than just restoring a crumbling old pile of rocks. It was about the ninety people who lived on the estate and depended on him for their livelihood. If marrying an heiress would save the three-hundred-year heritage of Whitefriars, it was what he needed to do.
Q. When did you first know you’re truly a bookworm? Did you lose sleep over a novel? (submitted by Kri @ The Tired Buyer)
A. I knew I was truly a bookworm the summer I turned 12 (maybe 13). We made weekly trips "to town" and I was able to stop by the library. I would check out 10-15 books and devour them by the next week. If I couldn't go on one of the trips, I would send my wish list with my Mom so she could stop by the library for me. I read ALL summer long and it was GLORIOUS! I don't get to read nearly as much as I did then (responsibilities and all that) but that was when my love of reading started, especially historical romance :)
