Darleston was beautiful. Not in a dandified fashionable sort of way, but in a beastly way... Any woman with a modicum of sense would be a fool to fall for him.
Emma Langley abhors physical contact, consequential she's shocked when she realises she attracted to one of her father's guests. Robert, Lord Darleston is like no other man she's ever met. He's flamboyant, charming and terrifies her as much as he arouses her. Nor is Emma the only person caught under his spell...
Forced into an arranged marriage to avoid exposure as a sodomite, Robert Darleston has a reputation as a rakehell and a voluptuary. His wife is a bitter, scheming harpy, whose rumor-mongering has already driven him from London into the heart of the English countryside. Here, fate unexpectedly reunites Darleston with his former lover, Lyle Langley. Torn apart by the intervention of their families, the primary barrier to their reunion is now Emma, Lyle's wife, a woman Darleston is fascinated by and has no wish to disrespect. All seems hopeless, that is, until Lyle admits that Emma is frigid and their marriage unconsummated.
Darleston proposes a plan... If he can just win Emma over, then maybe they can find happiness as a threesome. Old ghosts, a jealous wife, and an outraged father stand in his way.Other titles in the Scandalous Seductions series.
