Thanks so much to Jodi Aherns for the lovely review
As for the "connections left handing"...
I am currently writing the second book in my Indulgence series, which I plan to be a trilogy. The working title right now is One Glimpse, and our abused sub-character from One Indulgence, Sir Samuel Shaw, is the main character.
I do wish it were possible to for me to label the fact that One Indulgence is just the first book in a planned trilogy, but I guess I can understand why the publishers and book sellers don't want to do that when they aren't certain the second book will ever come, LOL.
