Break the sensual boundaries of Regency England with the bestselling author of The Slightest Provocation.

The ribald private life of novelist Countess Marina Wyatt is the stuff of public scandal—and it doesn't hurt the sale of her romances either. But she's totally unprepared for her consuming new affair with Jasper James Hedges, noted art appraiser and her former lover's uncle. In Marina, Jasper sees a work of art of another kind. And for all of Marina's passionate inventions, nothing can compare to what Jasper delivers—an erotic and dangerous voyage to the edge of impropriety and beyond.

Kristin Ramsdell - Library Journal

Beautiful, smart, and a wildly successful romance writer, Marina Wyatt, the widowed Countess of Gorham, enjoys a delightfully scandalous reputation and makes good use of it to promote her books. However, when the scholarly uncle of her supposed latest flirt approaches her with his concerns, the attraction between them flares into page-singeing passion and launches a clandestine affair that could prove unexpectedly deadly for them both. A cast of remarkably memorable secondary characters, including an obsessed blackmailer and a precocious preadolescent, join a beautifully matched, eminently appealing hero and heroine in a well-researched, secret-laden story that delves beneath the "proper" surface of early 19th-century English high society. This novel is supremely sensual, wickedly witty, and one of the author's best to date. Noted for exquisitely written, intelligent romances that often hover near the erotic edges of the genre, Rosenthal (The Slightest Provocation) lives in San Francisco.
