The most I can say about this book is...meh. It's not bad but it sure as heck isn't good. The story was alright but the over abundance of dull "Wham..Bam..Thank you ma'am" sex scenes left me rather cold. I don't think she wrote them very well. So, although I only have 2 thumbs, I still give it 3 thumbs down. :)
I'm not picky. I just want some romance, erotica, and a decent story. This book was offensive. Repeated "sex" scenes that were actually rape, including tying up a young girl (who is a 'villain' but come on) and sodomy. I'm liberal, I'm forgiving, but this book was unforgiveable and just gross and icky. Felt like I needed to take a shower (or 3) after reading it.
Orphaned at a young age and sent to live with selfish relatives, Margaret Gray has no dowry and no chance of ever marrying. When her aunt invites Jordan Prescott for a visit, hoping to entice him into offering for Margarets spoiled cousin, the dashing war hero instead tempts Margaret into a truly decadent decision. If Margaret cannot have a husband, perhaps she dares, just once, to taste the pleasures of the flesh? Now that shes awakened to her own desires and sensations, she is drawn body and soul into a rapturous clandestine liaison.
Since his dissolute father squandered the family fortune, Jordan is required to marry an heiress in order to provide for his half-siblings. Yet no woman has ever aroused him as much as Margaret. Her sedate exterior belies a bold, curious spirit and tantalizing sexuality. A single illicit tryst becomes a month-long journey in carnal abandon, but with Jordans visit drawing to a close, can their passion survive the dangerous scheming that threatens to keep them apart?
