Eleanor Palmer is relieved when her fiancé cries off the marry another woman but horrified when he suggests the dissolute Marquess of Grenville as a replacement. Eleanor may claim descent from the lusty King Charles II, but this proper English lady has no interest in the pleasures of the flesh. She'd rather read the Classics.
Nathaniel St. Clair is infamous for his wicked ways--drinking, gambling, and fornicating--but he's willing to give up all but one of his vices to initiate the lovely Miss Palmer into the joys of lust. Maybe a little dirty Latin poetry will aid his cause.
NOTE: This novella was originally released in 2008 by Cobblestone Press and then again by Kensington Books in the anthology titled Behind the Red Door in 2009.
The story is well written, entertaining and a great read. Eleanor and Nathaniel meet when her ex-fiancé suggests he would make her a good husband. Nathaniel who is more than the image he presents to the public is intrigued by Eleanor but knows there is no way they can be together. In very short time they become sexually involved and realize there is more to the other person than they realized. The sexual encounters between the two are well written and very erotic. I would recommend thus book. I received a copy of this book thru Booksprout.
