~~~This is a 50,000 word erotic regency romance.~~~
Miss Abigail Buxton is the second daughter of the recently deceased Marquis of Comerford and has spent most of her life in the shadow of her older and more gregarious sister, Margaret, who has emerged victorious from her first London season with a retinue of suitors.
Sir John Kingman has recently assumed the title of the Viscount of Worthington and with it all the associated responsibilities and duties, including the need to procure a wife and an heir. When he meets the titled and remarkably beautiful Lady Margaret Buxton, she appears to be the perfect woman for him in every way, except that she is much too forward with his younger brother, Charles.
As a dutiful second son, Colonel Charles Kingman joined the military ten years ago, but all the pain and death he witnessed has jaded him, and now he is desperate to retire from service and settle down, despite the consequent reduction in his pension. While visiting his brother in Cornwall, he encounters the lovely and tempting Buxton sisters and decides to offer his hand to the younger sister, Abigail.
The quandary that ensues arises from the complications that arise when the ways of the heart do not always coincide with the ways of the head.
