He Took Her By Surprise
When a naked earl climbs through the window into her bedchamber, Lady Elizabeth Runyon does the proper thing: She screams. Loudly. And then. . .well, Lizzie has had enough of being proper. She wishes to be bold. Wanton, even. She won't be commanded to put on her nightgown. Just this once, she will be absolutely daring. . .
She Returned The Favor
Robert Hamilton, Earl of Westbrooke, has no intention of being tricked into marriage by a detestable female, and if he has to flee naked across a rooftop, he will. Jolly good there's an open window waiting--as well as an undressed, slightly drunk, and alluringly beautiful Lady Elizabeth. Oh dear. If they are caught together, he might have to marry her. The idea is delicious. . .and the temptation is irresistible. . .
Praise for the novels of Sally MacKenzie:
"The Naked Marquis is the romance equivalent of chocolate cake. . .every page is an irresistible delight!" --Lisa Kleypas,New York Times bestselling author
MacKenzie continues her spicy Naked series (following last year's Naked Marquis) with another ribald Regency, this time centering on a country house party full of the punch-drunk loveless. When voluptuous, overbearing Lady Felicity Brookton wakes Robert Hamilton from a sound sleep, he knows his bachelorhood is in danger. In no time, he's up and out the window without a stitch of clothes and ducking into the quarters of Lady Elizabeth Runyon also, coincidentally enough, entirely in the nude. Robert knows Elizabeth as the little sister of his best friend, and therefore off limits, but he doesn't yet know about Elizabeth's long-simmering infatuation with him. As Robert seeks to avoid temptation, as well as the further advances of Felicity, other romantic entanglements wind through the crowd. Desperate to produce a male heir before her elderly husband dies, the duchess of Hartford seeks the services of handsome young Lord Peter, arousing jealousy in party host Baron Tynweith. Further complications arise when Felicity and one of Elizabeth's rejected suitors join forces; will Robert be able to protect Felicity and redeem himself, despite his guilt, doubt and mortifying erectile dysfunction? Providing plenty of heat and hilarity, MacKenzie has great fun shepherding this boisterous party toward its happy ending; readers will be glad they RSVPed.
