Description from Amazon.com:
Richard Hill, the Earl of Windermere, might desperately require a wife and heir, but thoughts of duty fly from his mind when he rescues Esme, Lady Heathcote, from the embarrassment of a failed affair. They usually never agree about anything. He’s never even kissed the vexing widow. But when the opportunity arises to whisk her away for a no-strings-attached rendezvous, Richard can’t imagine a better way to spend a moonlit evening. Esme has never lacked for admirers, but having Lord Windermere’s company goes a long way to ease the pain of losing her suddenly betrothed lover. And when Windermere suggests an affair, Esme is intrigued by the blazing-hot connection even while knowing their relationship has no future beyond his house party. But as with any temptation, it’s a bargain they’ll soon regret.
This romance was so romantic!! Yes, I know they are supposed to be romantic but too often they do misplace the romance for action, adventure, mystery or pathos. This has none of those, it is just all romance and a good bit of some mildly kinky sex. It is so well written that I can guarantee you will fall in love with Richard, Lord Windermere. Is he too good to be true? Well….maybe a little but his only fault is being just a touch arrogant. Esme is no Spring Chick at 36, widowed, childless and presumed barren she is not about to fall in love with 43 year old Richard who needs to marry and sire an heir. Esme has been around the block a few times and knows her own mind. Richard is all about changing her mind.
I can highly recommend this well written, sizzling romance to all of you who are craving something that makes you want to turn the pages. This is the one.
