The longer the resistance…
Seven years ago, on the eve of her wedding, proper Lady Jessica Sheffield witnessed a licentious scene no innocent young miss could imagine. Shocked, yet strangely titillated, she’d held her silence regarding scandalous Alistair Caulfield, and walked down the aisle as expected. But through years of serene, unremarkable marriage, Caulfield’s image remained burned into her imagination, fueling very illicit dreams…
…the sweeter the reward
Alistair ran far from the temptation of the prim debutante with the fire of passion in her eyes–all the way to the West Indies. As a successful merchant, he has little in common with the rakehell youth she knew. But when newly widowed Jessica steps aboard his ship for a transatlantic passage, seven years’ worth of denied pleasures are held in check by nothing more than a few layers of silk–and the certainty that surrender will consume them both…

4.5 “Love that Dirty Mouth” Stars
Warning Ladies: Alistar has a dirty mouth, and a body made for sin…
Lord Baybury, aka Alistair Lucius Caulfield
Every woman wether married or single, wants a piece of Alistar. He’s fine as hell, and a demon unleased in bed! Alistar is the fourth son of a Duke, and therefor has no money, and little worth. Once reduced to whoring for money under the guise of “Lucius”, Alistar is now a wealthy, accomplished man. He is also decidedly single because the one woman he wants, belongs to another.
Lady Tarley, aka Jess
Lady Tarley is a year into morning her late husband. She is content to remain single and manage the Jamaican sugarcane plantation her husband has left her. What she doesn’t know is that the ship she will be traveling on, is owned by the very man that she has never been able to keep her eyes off of. Alistar.
Alistar’s ship is setting sail from England to Jamaica and the woman he desires above all others is listed on the manifest. His plan is set. She will be his before they port in Jamaica!!
“If I could I would remain like this indefinitely-clasped by you, held inside you, a part of you-without moving at all. When we make love, I fight climax with everything I have. I don’t want to come; I do not want it to end. No matter how long I make it last, it isn’t nearly long enough.”
Lady Tarley and Lord Baybury sizzle and the passion between them is undeniable. Their passion even headlined the newspaper after a masquerade ball
My sympathies to the debutantes hoping to snare the magnificent marquess. The previously icy Lady T, now widowed and ablaze in red, drew the mesmerized Lord B to her like a moth to a flame. Dear Readers, the heat was palpable.
So scandalous. Now infamous. Decidedly delicious…
Ahh, I just love Silvia Day’s historical romances. The plots always have the perfect balance of angst. The secondary characters have depth, and the hero and heroine are perfectly flawed. Oh, and the eroticism will melt your panties!!
