* * * A hot historical romance from USA TODAY Bestselling Romance Author Jess Michaels * * *

Jude Samson has worked for the Woodley family for such a long time that he is seen as a brother. But he has very unbrotherly feelings toward the youngest of the clan, Lady Audrey. When they find themselves off at the family’s country estate, long simmering desires will come to the forefront and Jude won’t be able to stop himself from taking that one, oh-so-forbidden taste.

After seeing what it has done to her family, Audrey is afraid of passion. But the moment Jude touches her, fear is washed away by intense and powerful lust. Only Jude has a secret that could destroy everything that is beginning to develop between them. And when it comes out, it will change everything.


#1 in the new and exciting “The Wicked Woodleys”. What a passionate romance. Ms. Michaels never disappoints her readers/fans. Well written with hot, steamy romance, secrets and the power of love. Jude Samson and Lady Audrey Woodley are formidable characters. While, Jude feels more for Audrey than brotherly feelings, he has loved her from afar for years. Problem one…he works for the Woodleys in his father’s stead. And has secrets of his own. Problem two…he thinks of her brothers as family. Problem three… Audrey is fighting passion for she, feels passion is the cause of all evil.

Lady Audrey is the youngest of the Woodley clan and has been protected and pampered all her life.

Just one forbidden kiss to teach Audrey a lesson, leads to so much more.
Fast paced and passion filled.
Fans of Erotic Historical Romance, passionate kisses, drama, secrets, and hot, steamy scenes will grasp the reader and hold them there.
The problem… Audrey believes passion will lead to disaster. The solution…Judd will hopefully, prove otherwise,but will the Woodley family
and his father ever forgive him.
The H/H are engaging, and endearing characters. The storyline is unique, interesting and intriguing. A well executed tale of finding passion, love and HEA.
Ms. Michaels is an amazing storyteller who writes from the heart, with a firestorm of emotions and some very formidable characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to the next Woodley installment.
The sensual encounters are not just about sex but includes all the emotions involved, love and passion. Ms. Michaels is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to Erotic Historical Romance. A must read and a keeper. Another page Turner and another hit for Ms. Michaels. Well done!
