A man with a newly inherited title must be in want of a wife…or at least a lover.
Edmund Lake left the British navy after the Battle of Trafalgar when he inherited a title. Finally, after more than a decade at sea, the virile viscount has time for an extended tryst. His romantic hopes are focused on Clarissa Miller, the beautiful young widow of his ship’s captain.
With a little help from the goddess Aphrodite, he can win her body for one erotic night, but will they have a future when morning comes?
Anh Leod has created a really wonderful world with interesting characters that illustrates the sometimes harsh world where someone could be thrust into polite society with no idea how to handle it. Add to that the unique take of Aphrodite and you have a book that is hot and fascinating on a lot of levels.
Having said that, I found this book dragged for me. The end was very exciting but it took a while for it to get there, for me. Still, I think you won’t be disappointed you got experience this world for a little while.
