CHASING THE EARL
The Arrogant Earls Book 2
Spinster Emmagene Stitch doesn’t believe in love…until she meets the worst earl in London.
There is no gentleman in all of London considered more rude, impolite, blunt, and just plain awful than the Earl of Huntly. Miss Emmagene Stitch, self-proclaimed spinster is considered nearly as unpleasant with her sharp tongue and opinions.
The only thing Emmagene and Huntly can agree upon is their dislike of the house party they both find themselves attending. Forced into Huntly’s company by their hostess, Emmagene finds herself attracted to the earl despite the deficits to his character. Their affair is as unexpected as it is passionate.
But will it survive their eventual return to London?
THE VICTORIAN TAPEWORM DIET
The craze started in the early years of the 19th century. The dieter would swallow a pill containing the cyst of a tapeworm. As the tapeworm matured it would absorb food and the dieter would lose weight, so you could eat whatever you wanted. Once the desired weight was achieved, the dieter swallowed an anti-parasitic pill to excrete the tapeworm. Sounds so simple and incredibly gross.
