White Lace & Promises


Book two in the Carte Blanche Series

Beth and Grey’s passionate battle of wills continues...

New York Merchant Prince Grey Sexton loves the audacious, spirited young temptress who seduced him in a Philadelphia bookseller’s and made passionate love to him in his carriage. Her fiery nature broke through his cold self-protection. But in a time of war and trade disruption, he cannot allow himself to be distracted. He vows to put business above all else in his life, including his bride.

Shocked and hurt by Grey's distance, Beth wonders whether he truly returns the burning love she feels for him. Beth demands that Grey prove he can truly change once and for all or else she will not start a family with him. But will the dark, sensual secrets she yet keeps repel this arrogant, self-controlled gentleman she has married?

What People Are Saying About White Lace And Promises:



Night Owl Romance:



"While they succeed in marrying it’s not the end of the story; quite the opposite. This is no quick read, but rather a dissection of a relationship as it flounders and flourishes...A good ending to the story that started in “Grey’s Lady.” ~ Chris

Sugarbeat’s Books

"Ms. Blackthorne certainly has the ability to create a story so hot it steams up the glasses! At the same time, the character development is great. Even when I didn’t agree with what the characters were doing, they were consistent. Behavior that made sense in the end proved the consistency of the character development. Even the nasty characters were a delight to read because they were so real!" ~ Sugarbeat

Cocktails and Books






"I loved this book. You really got to know Grey and Beth and understand what made them the way they were. They were most definitely one of the hottest historical couples I have read, but seeing the people behind the passion made this book such an enjoyable read.” ~ Shannon




Queentutt's World of Escapsim



"Excellent Read as the drama builds up from the first book 'Grey’s Lady' in this series. I fell in love with the feisty red headed Beth and warmed up to Grey the distinguished business man and his sexiness in the first book, however, this second book has me totally addicted and madly in love with the whole series. Natasha Blackthorne does not disappoint her fans and delivers one fantastic story with the drama of lives between the well to do in society and meager servant’s offspring...Natasha Blackthorne, you truly know how to write and I highly recommend this series to all historical romance lovers. The writing is perfect, smooth and fast paced, guaranteed satisfaction!" ~ Ronda






Close Encounters With The Night Kind
"She is now engaged to the merchant prince of New York, but real life has an ugly way of getting in the middle of someones naughtily ever after. The woman who had raised Beth since her mother died is filling her head with the rules and expectations of Grey's world and Beth's first love has come back to haunt her. Top this off with some vicious gossip about her husband to be's first marriage and some ugly familial truths that come to light from Beth's past, and you have the recipe for a very rocky start. Grey is battling internally with his preconceived ideas about how his life and his marriage should mingle. He is a man that lives by a very controlled means and knows no other way to be. After the failure of his first marriage and his fear of ending up in a marriage similar to his parent's he has sworn off the thoughts of kids and settling down. But Beth was different.
White Lace and Promises will take you on a roller coaster ride of erotic sexual encounters, lies, deception, and near misses, on its journey towards it's naughtily ever after. Here both of the characters are stripped down to the bare essence of why they turned out the way they did. Grey has to compromise and realize that his way is not the only way. Beth has to learn to trust in him. But both are strong-willed and stubborn and after all the secrets are sired and the dust has settled, can they move forward? I fell in love with Grey in the last book and all over again in this one. This was a marvelous sequel!" ~ Nikki
