Emma Hallaway has been married since she was fifteen years old. In all of the twelve years she has been married, she has never lived as man and wife with her husband. Although her heart cried after him in his absence, she used her time to develop her craft as an erotic artist. Of course, polite society has no idea that she does this however, someone does know and they are out to blackmail her and reveal her secret to the world.
Richard Mansfield, Earl of Asbury, is very surprised to run into him wife at a bawdy house. He has not laid eyes on her in twelve years, and man does he get an eye full. When did his child bride become such a beautiful, enticing woman? He decides it is time to produce an heir, he cannot wait to get started. By the way, someone wants to kill him, and he discovers his wife is a erotic painter. Great, now things have gotten interesting.
The Seduction of His Wife is sooooooo good. I love this story. It was impossible to put the book down. If I could have read this book while driving, I would have. The characters are passionate and very dynamic. One attribute that I love about this book, is it is telling not just one story, but two at the same time. The love scenes are enticing and fiery. This is a story about never ending love and the divinity of forgiveness. One of my favorites this year.
