The story of Alex and Rebecca is progressing towards the end. I posted two more chapters of my regency romance novella Fibs in the Family on Wattpad. The villain finally makes his move, but Alex is out of touch at the moment. It is up to Rebecca to set things to rights. Only two more chapters are left before the final kiss.
A retired officer + an enterprising young woman = love and trouble
Captain Alex Woodward was fighting Napoleonic troops on the Peninsula, until his wounds forced him to retire. Now he travels to an estate of his former comrade, killed by the enemies, to fulfill his promise and help the slain officer’s sisters any way he could.
The estate is entailed, but the eldest sister Rebecca comes up with an ingenious solution to their problem. Although Rebecca’s idea is highly irregular and somewhat illegal, Alex’s promise wouldn’t let him to back off.
It could’ve been easy, if their mutual attraction didn’t complicate matters. And then, Rebecca’s brother’s secret past comes to light, and a worse entanglement ensues.
I entered the novella into the #Wattys2015 competition, so please read and comment.
