Book Description (From Amazon)
A lady in the ballroom…a lover in the bedroom.
The Ladies Book of Pleasures, Book 2
When Lady Jacinda unwraps a scandalous birthday gift, she’s sure the anonymous giver is playing a cruel joke. The Ladies Book of Pleasures may be responsible for one gossiped-about marriage, but for a lady ruined by a rogue and shunned by society, Jacinda is doomed to a lonely, loveless future.
Worse, as she pages through the volume of passionate promises, she is observed by the wicked and dangerous Duke of Carnthorn—and now he is stalking her as a possible willing victim of his shocking preferences.
Jason, Earl of Northfield, is having none of it. Jacinda, keeper of his most painful secret, is a friend he will not abandon to a wolf like Carnthorn. As they embark on a pretend courtship—for her own protection, of course—their proper decorum in public melts into wicked passion in the bedroom.
But even as real feelings begin to develop between them, Carnthorn is watching. He is not convinced. And he is determined to possess Jacinda, no matter whom he has to destroy…
Warning: This book contains friends turning to lovers, a highly erotic secret affair and a wicked villain who will destroy what he cannot have.

An awesome read! While, #2 in “The Ladies’ Book of Pleasures”, it can be read as a stand alone. The characters are well developed, engaging, and enticing. The storyline is intriguing, unique and well developed. I love this series! The passion between the characters is simply explosive, sensual and tastefully written. A must read! Another hit by his author. I would highly recommend this title. In fact, I would recommend reading “A Matter of Sin” as well. What a delightful and enjoyable read. Once again, Ms Michaels has hit the mark. She is an awesome storyteller. Simply wickedly delicious!
