From Renee Bernard comes the latest gem in her series of seductive gentlemen--and the tempting women who entice them...
Like all the Jaded Gentlemen, Dr. Rowan West may have his secrets but he's done his best to forgive the ghosts of his past and move on with his life. Until the beautiful Miss Gayle Renshaw appears on his doorstep, jeopardizing his medical practice, his reputation and, worst of all his heart.
In her desperation to become a doctor, Gayle uses what she knows of Rowan's fiance's mysterious death to blackmail him into taking her on as an apprentice. With his back against the wall, Rowan agrees, but quickly discovers that Gayle isn't as heartless as she seems. Captivated by his tenacious and brilliant new student, Rowan finds himself surrendering to temptation, just as the enemies of the Jaded start to encroach. Now, with both their lives threatened, Rowan may be forced to give up the woman he loves to save her life...
"Sensuality fairly steams from Bernard's writing. This luscious tale will enthrall you. Enjoy!" -- Sabrina Jeffries, New York Times bestselling author
Bernard's third Jaded Gentleman Victorian romance (after Revenge Wears Rubies and Seduction Wears Sapphires) sizzles as a pioneering woman finds love while pursuing her life's ambition. Gayle Renshaw travels to London to become the apprentice of Dr. Rowan West, a renowned physician. Rowan assumed his new apprentice was a man, but he reluctantly agrees to take Gayle on, hoping she will quit after being confronted with his most challenging cases. As Gayle thrives under Rowan's tutelage, their relationship crosses the line from professional into personal. Sensuality fills the pages as Gayle must decide how to profess her love for Rowan without harming her career. An intriguing suspense subplot adds substance and dimension, as does the departure from the typical historical focus on the nobility.

Ecstasy wears Emeralds
Great romance! Renee has become my favorite author. She writes novels as if she has insight into my life, knows all my secrets, and eloquently writes them down for the world to read. The strong women in each of her books takes my breath away. I only wish that I were as strong as they! ☺️
