From the author of Mastering the Marquess comes another blazingly provocative Regency romance! Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but in this clash of wills, lust is a feast for the senses.
After her dreams of wedding bells are dashed by a man she thought had serious intentions, Miss Angela Ripon must be satisfied. She plans to make him burn for her, and then to reject him as he rejected her. There’s only one woman who can teach Angela that sort of seduction: Madame Rouge—or Ruby, to the men who frequent her house of pleasure. The infamous madam agrees to help, but only after warning Angela that her target has very specific tastes. To trap her prey, she must shed every last inhibition.
Matthew Harkness, Earl of Colton, doesn’t mean to hurt the young admirers who flock to him. He simply isn’t interested in women who are too timid for his dark desires. He judged Angela to be like the others—tender, sweet, and innocent. So how to explain the change that has come over her? Matthew aches to teach Angela all he knows of earthly pleasures. But even as she offers the control he craves, perhaps this angelic beauty has a lesson or two to teach him.
Angel in Scarlet is intended for mature audiences. This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

This is a second chance although somewhat unconventional. Angela hoped that he would marry her, but Colton hurt her instead. Now she wanted vengeance until she found out she wanted more. Colton hoped he saw what he hoped for. Lessons of trust and honesty move this story along. I enjoyed this story and do recommend it.
I got this story through Netgalley for an honest review.
Madame Rouge Gets it Right Again
I absolutely love this series. I didn't realize it at first but all of this series really does revolve around Madame Rouge. She's like the overseer that guides all these couples towards their Happily Ever After. In this installment of the series we meet Angela & Matthew. There were so close to finding happiness a few years prior but it eluded them on a bed of fear. Now there doesn't seem to be a way to get back to what they had and it's as though neither of them want that but then if that were true they would have moved on way before now. The characters in this story are absolutely brilliant. They are vibrant, well-rounded and whole. The story flows with fantastic, beautiful settings laid out in exciting prose that makes you want more and more while being totally satisfied with what you have. I can't wait to see what Madame Rouge will get up to next!
