Blurb (as on Goodreads):
Lord Marcus Bowles has stained his family’s reputation for the last time. Only after spending a scandal-free year restoring some far-flung property can this second son return in good graces. But Marcus isn’t one to abandon a lone damsel on a dark country lane.
One stolen kiss and Genevieve Turner’s handsome midnight savior disappears. Typical. No matter, Gen is finally on the way to her new post, and hopefully to finding her grandmother as well. Instead she finds her mischievous hero is her new employer. Surely a few more kisses won’t hurt…
Aah! What a lovely couple. Lord Marcus Bowles is mysteriously drawn towards his gorgeous housekeeper Genevieve Turner and what follows is a full-fledged romance, full of passion and drama. But Genevieve has her own secrets and Marcus must save her from the ‘wolf’
A fairy tale kinda romance, with a hero and a villain, the book takes us through the country lanes and gives us a glimpse of the life of the life of a royal, abandoned by his family. I particularly enjoyed two things in the story:
- A plot that hasn’t been complicated
- Romance, and the sex scenes, which have been exceptionally written.
Gina Conkle has essentially captured the raw passion between these two lovers. And it’s not just the sex that shows their love and attraction. It’s the friendship and the intimacy that they share, not in a physical sense but of a more emotional type.
This one for the lovers of fairy tales, romance, and of decent and passionate sex. A witty historical romance and a great book to curl up with.
