Saving Lord Whitton's Daughter by Susan Tietjen - Book Tour + Giveaway






Lady Bethany would rather die a spinster than submit to marriage—and thus reveal the horrible secret she has harbored for more than a year
Lord Locke is far too immersed in his service to the Crown for romance, but Lady Bethany is in dire circumstances.
Indebted to Bethany’s late father and his close friend, the earl offers a perfect solution for both of them: a marriage in name only.
Perfect, if only they weren’t so irresistibly drawn to each other—and if Bethany hadn’t found herself falling in love with a man even more mysterious than his reputation. Perfect, until she unwittingly learns he’s protecting her from a threat to her life.
To Mark, Bethany is just another assignment, a woman he’s convinced is hiding something. His offer of marriage was meant only to make it easier to safeguard her.
But when the simple threat turns to attempted murder and treason, Mark realizes that Bethany has stolen his heart and he can do nothing less than throw himself into a race against time to save her, whatever the price.





Susan was born
and raised a California girl but is grateful to have lived on the Oregon coast
and in the Rocky Mountains of northern Utah. She’s now enjoying living with her
husband in the incomparable beauty of the Redwood forest, nestled against the rugged
coast of Northern California.
Susan raised a
tribe of children, making ends meet as a registered nurse and lactation
consultant, and now her tribe members have tribes of their own and she just
doesn’t get to see enough of them. She loves to travel and is thrilled with a
good movie or a great book, but writing is her passion. She writes almost
anything, especially epic fantasy and romance. Saving Lord Whitton’s
Daughter
is her first Regency Romance.
Susan would love
to hear your comments. Please review her book at your favorite retailer, and at
Goodreads, and/ or drop her a note at:

Character Casting
It was hard to find just the right actors for the parts. I have a whole new respect for the challenges of filmmakers after searching high and low for the individuals I felt could portray my characters the way I see them. These are the winners. They haven’t auditioned yet, so who knows?

Drumroll, please:

The two main characters: Marcus Ashburn, the Earl of Locke (Lord Locke), and Bethany Montgomery, Lady Bethany, Lord Whitton’s daughter (Lady Bethany).

Lord Locke: Henry Cavill

Lady Bethany: Maia Mitchell (although she’ll need to wear green contacts, of course.)

The two main supporting actors: Camille Camerfield (Lady Camille), and Kirkwood (Kirk) Banister, the Marquess of Scarbreigh (Lord Scarbreigh)

Lady Camille: Olivia Holt

Lord Scarbreigh: Bobby Lockwood. He needs to be just as good at serious as he is at cut-up.

I looked high and low for good identical twins to play the Camerfield brothers, Lord Mathew and Mr. Nicolas, and I have a few ideas. I’d love to have input from readers. Who you pick to play them? 


Snippet

“I understand you, too, have preferred not to marry. Your reasons are yours and I reassure you that I respect them. As for me, I firmly believe a father should assist in raising his children, and if he cannot, he shouldn’t have them. I’m fond of children, but I’m gone too much, and for that reason, I don’t want them. I’ve a female cousin with three fine boys, and the oldest knows he’s in line to inherit if something happened to me—and you. This is a simple contractual arrangement, Lady Bethany. Should you marry me, you must serve as a wife in name only.”
“My lord?” Had she heard him rightly?
“It’s imperative you agree, however, to do all you can to convince the ton we’re happily matched. It will put an end to the gossip I utterly detest and the schemers who hound me. In return, you’ll have everything I’ve offered you. Support for your mother. Repair for Whitton. A home at Moorewood. More horses than you can manage. And the comforts and distinction of being my countess all the days of your life.”
The proposition rendered Bethany speechless, the realities of it leaving her feeling torn. First, came the most incredible sense of relief at knowing the earl wouldn’t force her into his bed. Then, in a momentary flash of insight, she not only grasped the barrenness of the life she had considered her lot for the last fourteen months, she also recognized the thread of hope that had somehow buried itself deep inside her. That perhaps she would one day have what most women wanted. Could she truly stand a lifetime of never becoming a mother? Never know what it was like to love or to be loved by a man?
Never know how it would feel to be loved by this man?
