This is the first book in the Notorious Series. I really enjoyed the frustration the hero and heroine went through on this. In the end it all worked out for the better.

Former Harlequin author Jordan (The Heart Breaker) writes highly charged erotic historical romances. Her latest--set in 1810 England--opens with a graphic bondage scene, and the thrust of the book is the sexual education of a beautiful but repressed widow. Damien "Lord Sin" Sinclair keeps company with a depraved aristocratic set devoted to carnal pleasures. Lady Vanessa Wyndham falls into his clutches when her scapegrace brother falls afoul of Sin in an incident involving the accidental crippling of Sin's sister. Challenged to cards, the young man loses heavily, and it's up to Lady V to convince Sin not to foreclose. A nasty bargain is struck: she'll become Sin's mistress to pay off the family debt. But ultimately it becomes clear that the notorious nobleman has met his match: "He had tutored her in the arts of love-making, but she had taught him to love." Readers who devour the erotic historicals of Susan Johnson (see above review) will enjoy this, but those turned off by scenes featuring masturbation and ivory dildos may choose to pass.

England early 1800s. A little explicit for me, but at least I discovered it in the first scene before I could really get into the book. I'm sure it is probably a good story as I have seen many good reviews, but I don't care to have so much sensuality in my books.

It's a steamy romance. I enjoyed the quick and fun read. :) Set in regency-era England, which I also enjoyed. Listed on Bookcrossing, I'd appreciate it being jounaled. :)
