A daring widow. A determined marquess. A story too wicked for the eyes of the ton…
Lady Georgiana Black, dowager duchess of Ashwood, emerges from a year of official mourning with her next steps firmly in mind. She will retreat to her beloved country estate, play matchmaker to her dearest friends, and write daring romance novels under a male pseudonym. Far from the prying eyes of the ton—and her late husband's odious cousin.
But when her publisher wants to meet "Geoff Parker" in person, she gratefully accepts the help of Jeremy Graystone, heir to a dukedom. The childhood neighbor and friend she might have married.
Years ago, Jeremy had to watch Georgiana's family marry her off to another. Now the timing is finally right. But with Georgiana determined to relish her newfound freedom, he will be patient and plan for the day he will have her in his bed, his hands tangled in her spun-gold hair, her lapis-blue eyes only for him.
And do whatever is necessary to keep her late husband's greedy cousin from destroying her happiness…
Note: Her Lustful Desires is the sizzling first book in J.R. Salisbury's new series, "The Merry Widows".
