Enjoyed the story
Enjoyed this story that revolves Lady Jane and Lord Gerard. Jane has been in love with Gerard for over ten years and Gerard considers her a good friend but nothing romantic. Even though Gerard goes thru women fast, he has always stayed constantly friends with Jane. When he decides to marry Janes is his first choice because he likes her but he has no intentions of giving up other women (mistresses) which seems to be way of the time for married noble men. With the aid of her two friends, she goes to the Red Door madam to seek information on how to keep Gerard’s attention, because she realizes he has a roaming eye. In disguise Jane sees Gerard with another woman at the Red Door and with the help of the madam, she changes places with her after the madam asks a favor of Gerard to help determine if a young girl is a candidate to work for her but with the condition she is masked and must retain her virginity. The sexual encounters between them are well written and very erotic. There is a HEA in this book but a lot happens first. I would recommend this book.
