CHASING THE EARL
The Arrogant Earls Book 2
There are many uses for a good custard. Seduction being one of them.
Rosalind Richardson is in her third season, pleasantly plump and with an unrestrained passion for making tarts. Her dream is to become London’s finest purveyor of desserts and sweets. She’s certain the key to her future is a collection of unique recipes so exquisite, so rare, that her success and her independence is guaranteed. She only needs to find a copy of the cookbook. Marriage, especially to the much older, far too handsome Earl of Torrington would ruin all Rosalind’s plans.
No matter how marvelous he kisses.
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.
