Benedict’s Challenge (Regency Club Venus 3) is the 3rd book in Amazon #1 & USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, hot new historical romance series, Regency Club Venus.
Lord Benedict Winter knows what those in Society think of him. Of their disapproval of his having studied and become a physician. They are even more shocked that he uses his skill, not just to treat the poor but also to care for the ladies of Club Venus, a house of ill-repute owned by one of his closest friends. Not disapproving enough to ban him from entering their homes of course, because he is, after all, one of the wealthiest gentleman in England.
Having shunned all attempts to entice him into the Marriage Mart, many in Society also believe Benedict to be a cold and arrogant man, with no emotion to give.
His close friends know better.
As they also know of the secret he has kept for so long…
In the circumstances, the very last thing Benedict needs or wants is to meet and instantly be attracted to Chloe, a young woman he discovers residing in another man’s home.
Chloe has lost everyone dear to her. Her parents. The brother she adored. All gone. And in their place she now lives in the home of a man who despises her and takes every opportunity to make those feelings known to her.
Lord Benedict Winter sweeps in like a breath of fresh air into the stultifying life Chloe is now forced to lead. But he blows hot and cold, one moment making his desire for her known and the next putting her at arms’ length and insisting he is not the man for her to build her dreams upon.
But dreams, Chloe quickly discovers, have a will and determination of their own.
As does she…
