After all, if she has an heir on the way, her future will be secured. Forsaking all she knows of propriety, Martha approaches her neighbor, a London exile with a wicked reputation, and offers a strictly business proposition: a month of illicit interludes . . . for a fee.Theophilus Mirkwood ought to be insulted. Should be appalled. But how can he resist this siren in widow's weeds, whose offer is simply too outrageously tempting to decline? Determined she'll get her money's worth, Theo endeavors to awaken this shamefully neglected beauty to the pleasures of the flesh-only to find her dead set against taking any enjoyment in the scandalous bargain. Surely she can't resist him forever. But could a lady's sweet surrender open their hearts to the most unexpected arrival of all . . . love? Download and start listening now!

    " This was really difficult to get into, the only thing that kept me interested was Theo. The ending was decent. I don't know if I'll read any more in the series. "

    " Very very good novel that pulled me in, though it wasn't a stay up until its done. Interaction btw the main protagonists was great & I loved how both grew over the course of the book. Can't wait for the next one. "

    " I only read this because the guy was named Theophilus. I apologize in advance for reading so much fuzzy brain candy right now. Unexpected theme, interesting injection of realism in a regency romp. I look forward to this author's future work. "

    " The careful slow dance of these two characters as they get to know each other and slowly discover themselves was so wonderful. Not a big rollicking book, but one I cherished and learned a great deal from. Fabulous. "

    " Maybe a 2 1/2 star book. Good story but slow and dull. Quite a bit of sex but boring. I might throw up if I read the word appendage one more time. Nothing sexy about that word lol "

    " I believe this had the potential to be really good. But it didn't live up to my expectations. Parts were interesting and entertaining. Parts I even laughed out loud on. But as a whole, it wasn't so good. Martha really annoyed me after awhile. But the ending was pretty good. "
