Wickedly Ever After
Eleanor Palmer has always favored brains over beauty, but that is not to say she cannot appreciate a handsome man, most notably the Marquess of Grenville.
Morally corrupt and sinfully wicked is the perfect foil for his true identity, and one Nathaniel St. Clair works to perfection.
Eleanor is quite certain her body and mind have two completely different agendas. How can she possibly be attracted to a cad like Nathaniel when she knows for a fact that he will only break her heart? She wants quiet and scholarly, but she craves unbridled passion.
This is a playfully passionate and tantalizingly read. Eleanor and Nathaniel are simply lovable characters.
Scandalously Ever After
Calliope works in one of the most prestigious brothels in all of London and makes more money in a week then she would make in a year as poverty-ridden Callie James.
Memories are vivid and haunting for Lieutenant Colonel Jack Prescott, and sleeping alone increases his nightmares tenfold.
Jack can recall every man who has died under his command as easily as if he saw them yesterday, and sleep is quickly becoming a rarity. All he needs is a bed partner, and Calliope is exactly what he is looking for. Being asked to literally sleep with a man has never happened to Callie, but denying him is unthinkable. His tortured eyes pierce right through a heart she thought long dead.
This story is a healing for two scarred souls. They come together in a most beautiful and intimate way.
Sinfully Ever After
Unlike her devilishly handsome brother, Jane St. Clair is considered painfully plain by most of the ton. She has come to terms with this fact, although the old nickname Plain Jane still carries the same sting.
Gerard Everett has always considered Jane the best of friends, and despite his numerous and at time infamous affairs, she is never far from his thoughts.
Marrying Jane is just what Gerard needs in his life. He has no romantic notions of her, but they get along famously in every other way. Jane has loved Gerard for most of her life, and if she wants a marriage in the true sense of the word, she needs to get busy. Gerard’s proposal sets him on a road of discovery that truly awakens him body, heart, and soul.
It is so true that some of the most interesting things come in the plainest of packages. Gerard and Jane are great fun as they go about discovering each other’s hidden secrets.
Behind the Red Door is chock full of passion and pleasure. All of the characters are witty, intelligent, and sweetly sinful. A little less vanilla, and maybe a bit more spice would send this way over the top. It is a fantastic read, and will warm you up quite nicely.
