When faced with a rakish, lusty husband, what is a proper English wife to do but educate herself in the art of bedplay?
“Marriages are strange things, none stranger perhaps than this betwixt me and my lord husband.”
Lady Cecelia is married to the dashing and philandering Lord William Stanton, a situation that would distress even the most composed and refined gently-born lady. However, Cecelia has a secret balm to her dissatisfaction: her maid, Bess Miller.
Cecelia’s inexperience and William’s insatiable appetites fuel her desire to learn, and Bess is a willing teacher. Then, when Cecelia blossoms into pregnancy and can no longer accommodate William’s needs, he distances himself, and Bess becomes her only solace and comfort — and the channel for her most intimate desires.
As Cecelia struggles to understand her own feelings, gossip begins to spread. William starts asking questions, and wicked confessions must be made…
I loved this book. It’s funny. It’s hot. It’s entertaining. And have I mentioned hot?
This is not a glamorous regency/historical romance of elegant London town houses or high society debutante ball.
The author did a really good job of conveying the tone and feel of the time period in which the book is set considering how short it is.
It’s a very well developed story with interesting characters.
I was ready to not like William by the way the way he was described in the sypnosis, but he was endearing and charming. A man-whore nonetheless.
I’d definitely like to read more from this author

It’s a great quick and interesting read. If you like erotica, humor and historical/recency “romance”, go for it.
