Dear Ripped Bodice Community,
We want to make sure we are keeping you updated on how we are handling this crisis. It’s been a very challenging time but we are hanging in there.
The shop remains closed to all customers with no events on the calendar. Once we have more clarity about the ongoing health crisis, we will reevaluate the calendar and let everyone know.
We are still accepting online orders and have adopted a process to best comply with the evolving guidelines from California and LA County Departments of Health.
This means that Leah is processing all incoming orders and our staff has been instructed to stay at home. Because this is now a one-woman operation, shipping may be slower than normal. We love and appreciate your support in this incredibly difficult time, so we ask that you bear with us as we continue to fill orders.
We are now accepting new orders for care packages. However, because we are down to a shipping staff of one, we will be accepting orders in batches so as not to overwhelm Leah. Head to this link to enter your email address, and we’ll send you the order link once it’s your turn.
Questions about orders (or anything) can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, now is a great time to think about becoming a Patron of the store.
There is already a ton of cool content you can check out on our page. Including 12 original short stories from some amazing romance authors. Vlogs and other fun stuff. We know this is not an option for everyone and that's totally okay and understandable. But if you're looking for a way to help, this is a great option.
We hope you are all doing okay and making it through one day at a time.
xoxo, Bea & Leah and Fitz
The Gift (Mass Market)
#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood proves why she is the undisputed queen of romance yet again with this sensual story of passion and adventure on the high seas.
Beautiful and audacious, Sara Winchester is no longer the child she was when she married Nathan, Marquess of St. James. Determined to win his love completely, Sara, blissfully unaware of Nathan’s notorious bootlegging past, has been gleefully waiting for the day when her husband would come to reclaim her heart. The man who stands before her is arrogant, mysterious, and undeniably sexy...an infamous pirate whose touch arouses her wildest, deepest desires.
Aboard his ship, The Seahawk, Nathan becomes infuriated yet enchanted by Sara's sweetly defiant ways, but upon their return to England, their love will be painfully tested by an ugly family scandal that threatens to tear them apart. With their future at stake, they discover the true destiny of their love.
