Stephen Hornsby, the Marquess of Clevedon, has one goal: to see every exquisite thing he can before he goes blind. His greatest joy, watching a woman shuddering in the throes of passion, will be gone. But before the darkness descends, he is determined to seduce a magnificent widow, Lady Penelope Fisherton. Unfortunately, his rakish reputation has preceded him; Lady Penelope spurns his advances. Being a man who relishes a challenge, however, her reluctance adds only luster to his desire for the last beautiful sight he’ll ever see.
Considered the belle of London society, Lady Penelope was married to a scoundrel who cared for no one but himself. Now that she’s free, she wants nothing to do with love, passion, or desire—emotions that abandoned her with a cruel husband. So why does her body react when Stephen smiles? As much as she’d like to avoid the rogue, her brother-in-law wants her fortune, and he’ll kill to get it. Stephen is willing to help, but he’ll take only one thing in return: Her. In his bed.
I've been a fan of Ms Evans books for a while now, so I couldn't wait to start her new book, I read it in one day, yes a late night was involved but we will gloss over that. So take it from me when you start reading you will not want to put it down.
Now Stephen Hornsby, the Marquess of Clevedon is a man on a mission, he wants to collect beautiful things and this time he wants a landscape by a unknown painter called Wilson...but he has a problem unfortunately for Stephen, Lady Penelope also wants the painting.
So how do I describe Stephen, well I will quote what Penelope said about him. God the man could make a nun give up church, all I can say to that is wow. Now Stephen has a problem...but it takes his friends and family to make him realise that he can have a certain something, to find out what it is you have to read the book.
So how do I describe Penelope, she is woman that even though she is beautiful, she also has a problem, Penelope's problem is regarding her late husbands brother and she needs Stephen help. To find out more you must read the book.
I will give 5/5 stars. The book is on pre-order at Amazon UK
and the book is published on 4th September.
I received this ARC from the author in return for a honest review.
