Heat Rating: 3
A new bride, the inexperienced Lady Amberly has no idea she isn’t passionate enough to please her husband until she overhears two prostitutes talking about his current mistress. Determined to become her husband’s only lover, Lady Amberly turns to a mysterious man named Jack to learn more about her own body and to find out how to please a man. Jack blindfolds her, then takes her to heights of passion she hadn’t known existed. Now it’s time to use what she’s learned during those lessons to seduce her husband and keep him happy in the marital bed.
This is a fast read but a fun one. Lady Amberly is sufficiently naive but she learns quickly. Her husband Edmund is just aloof enough to keep the reader slightly off balance. Without giving away the surprise, I do have to say that I knew almost from page one what was going to happen but I still enjoyed watching the characters get where they were going.
The love scenes are passionate and it was fun to see Ms. Mathews take an erotic twist on the ton and the ballroom scene. Very fun read.
