How is one innocent country girl to choose between a Duke, a Marquis and an Earl? Must she?
When Miss Alicia Silverwood marries the Earl of Dorchester, he whisks her off to Notre Plaisir, a country manor where erotic surprises await in the company of three powerful lords.
The young Earl needs a wife and heir. The cynical Marquis de Beaumont needs a playmate. And the commanding Duke of Warrington needs a reason to live. As for the new Lady Dorchester, she’s about to discover the true nature of her own sensual needs. On top of that, she’s falling in love.
It might take a miracle for Lady Alicia and her three lords to come to an arrangement that makes them all happy. Or perhaps all that’s required is a little scandalous rule-breaking.
What's a Lady to do when her naughtiest fantasies are revealed to her, and they are far beyond what she ever expected?
Lady Alicia is in a quandary, and what a glorious one to be in. Her husband, the Earl, has been convinced that he wouldn’t be good enough for her first bedding, so he instructs his friend (the instigator in this whole plot), the Marquis, to seduce and tease her, then the Earl takes over the deflowering. Eventually their friend, the Duke comes into the picture. He offers Alicia all that she could ever want, but you’ll have to read this yourself to find out what!
I really enjoyed this book. I was a little shocked actually. I have been leery of reading any historicals lately, but Ms. Bell was able to make me forget and just enjoy the story. She made the characters believable - Alicia’s haughtiness, the Earl’s obsession with his horses, the Marquis’ playboy-esque mentality, and the Duke’s despair.
Ms. Bell had me gobbling up this story from the first page. It was incredibly hot and steamy. Despite the fact that one of my hot buttons was pushed, I was easily able to overcome any concerns I had, and desperately enjoyed the story.
This is a highly recommended read, for all those who enjoy when everyone wins, when the foreplay is enough to make you squirm and shake, and when the love shines through and makes you grin.
