About this ebook

This story was first published in the anthology, It Started With a Whisper

Debutantes fear him. Their mamas shun him. And it’s all the fault of that gossip-monger, Lady X.

William Grey, Lord Tensford, has an old title and an empty purse. He knew it would be difficult to find a Society bride, but after Lady X heeds baseless rumor and brands him Lord Terror, it’s next to impossible.

Until he comes to the aid of Lady Hope Brightley, who staunchly defends him to the ton, causing Lady X to re-dub him Lord Tender.

It’s no improvement. Now he’s a laughing stock as well as a fortune hunter. But Lady Hope means to repay his kindness by helping him to find a bride. But in the end, will she turn him over to the perfect mate? Or ask him to . . . Love Me, Lord Tender?

Love Me, Lord Tender (A Series of Unconventional Courtships Book 1) by Deb Marlowe is a delightful, sweet, traditional - style Regency Historical Romance. A novella, and a start to a new series, which promises to be a delightful series. "This novella originally appeared in the anthology, It Started With a Whisper." This is the story of William Grey, Lord Tensford, aka Lord Terror, so labelled by the ton, through rumors and lies and Lady Hope Brightley, who is determined to help him become, Lord Tender. Well paced story of lies, rumors, tabloid gossip, love and finding a HEA. The characters are charming and will definitely capture your heart. The storyline flows seamlessly and effortlessly. I enjoyed watching Hope and Willam find their HEA. Heartwarming and sweet story. A definite keeper. I can hardly wait for the next adventure in this series. Once again, Ms. Marlowe, has given her readers a most read story, with engaging characters and a HEA. She never disappoints her readers
