THE INK BLOT GUEST SPOT: from "Duty and Desire" by Elise de Sallier

“I don't think you're a witch, and I would never wish you any harm,” Jonathan interjected, capturing Miss Daniels' attention.

“You could have fooled me.”

“Maybe if Mr Harding were to offer an apology for his perceived insult?” Lady Blackthorn arched a brow at Jonathan.

“Perceived?” Miss Daniels crossed her arms. “He thinks the use of herbal remedies is akin to practising sorcery. Do you know why herbalists and the like were accused of witchcraft in the past, Mr Harding?” She turned to face him, her green eyes flashing. “Because they were predominantly women . . . women who were healthier and lived a great deal longer than those who put their trust in the methods employed by the male dominated medical fraternity. Methods, I might add, that I consider barbarous.”

"Duty and Desire" is the second book in Elise de Sallier's "Hearts of Honour" series. 
The first book, "Passion and Propriety" comes out in August.

Look out for it. It is FABULOUS
