Lady Elspeth Grafton has never indulged in the sensual games the nobility play. She is the most steadfast of wives to her disagreeable husband who is confined to his Bath chair (wheelchair). Lord Grafton keeps her on a short leash and guards her jealously even from those who would befriend her. The entire ton is aware that Elspeth is treated more like his slave than his wife. That she hasn’t turned to another for kindness or anything else amazes the gossipmongers among the nobility. When the ton’s most scandalous rake the Marquis of Darley casts his eye towards her, Elspeth doesn’t know whether to give in to her curiosly strong desires or ignore his attempts to seduce her.
Julius D’Abernon, Marquis of Darley is a master in the art of seduction and amourous pursuits. His numerous liaisons have been the subject of many drawing room conversations, gossip columns and caricatures in London newspapers. Rumor has it that he can seduce any woman with one of his knowing gazes—even the tragically faithful Lady Elspeth Grafton. The challenge would be to seduce her right under her despotic husband’s nose. And Julius is always up for a challenge especially one he is confident he can win.
Susan Johnson, one of the mistresses of erotic romance returns with the first book in a new series. When You Love Someone is almost too hot to handle but handle it you must. Julius and Elspeth’s story is one that begs to be read over and over. For all of the eroticism of the love scenes you cannot be distracted from the depth of their connection to one another. A definite keeper, ladies.
