Marguerite Laurent deals with the dying every day in her job. But, after being told she was not going to make it through the following Christmas, she decides it is high time she lives her life to the fullest.
Ash Courtland can never forget what life was like when he lived in the gutters of the city. Now that he is rolling in money, he is determined to keep it, no matter what he has to do and damn the consequences.
The first item on Marguerite’s agenda is to take a lover. Finding an eligible man is the easy part, but actually going on the trip is a little hard when you are kidnapped by a handsome but rough man who decides you will do well to become his bride. Ash will do whatever it takes to keep the business he feels is half his. What starts out as a plan to get what he wants turns into so much more as Marguerite and Ash discover a passion and love unlike anything they have ever felt before.
What a great tale Ms. Jordan spins with her colorful depictions and vivid characters. The way Marguerite struggles with the knowledge of her demise and the desire to be with Ash brings some interesting twists and turns to this book. Wicked Nights with a Lover pits a man used to viewing certain women as pampered princesses against a woman who has not known comfort or love. I enjoyed reading this tale of two people who live in different worlds but have so much in common they cannot help but find each other.
