Description: When faced with a rakish, lusty husband, what is a proper English wife to do but educate herself in the art of bedplay?
“Marriages are strange things, none stranger perhaps than this betwixt me and my lord husband.”
Lady Cecelia is married to the dashing and philandering Lord William Stanton, a situation that would distress even the most composed and refined gently-born lady. However, Cecelia has a secret balm to her dissatisfaction: her maid, Bess Miller.
Cecelia’s inexperience and William’s insatiable appetites fuel her desire to learn, and Bess is a willing teacher. Then, when Cecelia blossoms into pregnancy and can no longer accommodate William’s needs, he distances himself, and Bess becomes her only solace and comfort — and the channel for her most intimate desires. As Cecelia struggles to understand her own feelings, gossip begins to spread. William starts asking questions, and wicked confessions must be made...

Review: When I started this I was unsure of if I was going to like it or not, but within a short amount of time it became obvious I did. I've always been a fan of historical romances, there is something about that time frame that is just sexy when written correctly. Cecelia is a handful from the beginning of the book, when she grows up and is told she is to be married to Lord Stanton she is very upset. Yes Lord Stanton is a good looking man, and he isn't old or anything, but he is known to be a ladies man. With her wedding night upon her she is disappointed when it isn't anything exciting for her. Her husband is a bit disappointed as well that she doesn't share his appetite for sex. That is all I'm going to share of the book with you! I will say that after that night things change and for the better! There is some sexual things in here that I'm not really used to reading, but it wasn't disgusting or anything for those concerned! I feel like this is a wonderful and sexy book that is enjoyable to read.
