Book Description (from amazon)
Sometimes our wildest dreams come true.
In the tumultuous summer of 1808, Spain and England are close to war and four young lovers are close to ecstasy.
To carve out an independent life with the woman she loves, ANNA knows she must leave her quiet Spanish convent to become a courtesan. To gain experience, she sets her sights on . . .
SEBASTIAN, whose powerful, aristocratic confidence suits Anna’s mercenary goals. But his arrogance masks a craving for submission that Anna instinctively satisfies. Sebastian soon begs for her hand in marriage, even if it means sharing her with . . .
PIA, who trusts Anna completely—with her body and her future—until she learns of Anna’s hasty marriage. Pia questions their commitment to each other as they leave for London to meet
FARLEIGH, the seemingly feckless duke who thinks he’s over Sebastian, the potent Spanish soldier he bedded two years ago.
What begins as a series of erotic escapades soon evolves into a deep, unbreakable bond. Two men and two women who yearn to explore are about to make their wildest dreams come true.
A very well written, enjoyable novel about four lovers and how they overcome society’s strict rules governing their sexual behavior. When I first received this book, I was hesitant to read it as it is not my usual type of read; however, after reading it, I am extremely glad I gave it a chance! The way Ms. Mulry writes this novel makes it truly outstanding. The love scenes between Anna and Pia are loving and tasteful and the way Anna is dominant yet loving makes her character seem caring. Pia’s love for Anna is all consuming and yet, when Sebastian enters the picture, Pia finds a way to make room in her heart for him as well. The feelings that Sebastian has for Anna will draw you in and make you simply love him! When Farleigh enters into the picture, it makes such a seamless transition from three partners to four partners that you almost forget it hasn’t been that way the whole novel! Having Anna and Farleigh as the dominants made for some ironic comedy as Anna maintains the upper hand even though Farleigh is an almighty duke, and she a mere convent-raised miss (up until her marriage of course). Be prepared for a love scene at the end of the novel that will have you fanning yourself it’s so steamy! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes D/S books with multiple partners between both male and female. This book isn’t only about fiery sex, it also has a touching love story that will leave you with a smile on your face.
