Publisher's Summary

"Bella's mouth fell open in astonishment. She'd never seen two men kiss, and had never heard of such a thing, but a warming prickle between her thighs told her she approved wholeheartedly."

When young, 18th-century lady Bella Rushdale finds herself fiercely attracted to handsome landowner Lucerne Marlinscar, she does not expect the rival for her affections to be another man. However, the handsome and decadent Marquis Pennerley has desired Lucerne for years, and when they are brought together at the remote Lauwine Hall for a country party on the Yorkshire Moors, he intends to claim him. This leads to a passionate struggle for dominance, at the risk of scandal, between the highly sexed Bella and the debauched aristocrat. Ultimately it will be Lucerne who will choose the outcome, and his decision will be bound to upset somebody's plans.

Alot of Sex but little plot

Simple plot Wouldn't really recommend it. Not a bad read but nothing to recommend.

Yuck!

I'm glad that I only paid $4.95 for this mess in an Audible sale. I have nothing good to say about this book. It's like a cheap porno film - sex all the time, with anybody, for no reason and with no discernible story line. Bella is an 18th century Paris Hilton - a person on earth for absolutely no reason. With no morals or self-respect. There's nothing wrong with a steamy novel but there's has to be more meat to the tale (no pun intended!). You can find far better books here for your money. As for the fate this one on my iPod: DELETE!

Save your money!

The only redeeming factor about this book is the character Von. If it wasn't for his humor and extreme sexiness, I would have stopped listening halfway in. The main character was just dirty. Not erotic sexy dirty either. I mean dirty like a disease ridden trollop. If you are looking for a delicious regency period erotic journey...This isn't the book.

Yuck!

The first audible download I did not listen to. This book is just porn. There is no plot whatsoever and everyone is treated like meat. Disgusting book.

18th Century novel...puh-lease

The only thing that put this bit of prnography in the 18th century was that "her breasts were chafed by her boned stays" and that his "hardening staff pressed against the fabric of his skin tight breeches".
If you took the actual book and subtracted the amount of porn, it would probably have only been 1 hour long. To say I am disappointed is an understatement!!!

Urgh!

I agree with Jud 100 percent. This book has no worthwhile storyline. I also wondered how an 18th century young woman could have so much sex and not even give a thought to the ramifications. I enjoy a good erotic book once in a while but it has to have some discretion. I quit reading after the first hour or so, I saw no point in continuing

WOW! (And not in a good way!)

How can I describe this book? Indulgent, irresponsible people having indiscriminate sex with whoever is at hand and will hold still long enough. With all the random bed-hoping (when they could make it to a bed, that is!), the author was barely able to squeeze in a weak storyline. What I kept asking myself about the heroine (if you could call her that) is, how could an 18th-century woman have so much unprotected sex (sometimes three men in one day!) and not get pregnant? I'm all for sexy entertainment, but please provide at least a marginally believable storyline to go with it!

Disgusted

In the first 15 minutes or so of this book I was offended. I have always liked romance but this is pornography.
