Normally shy, Merriam Everett experiences one night of forbidden passion. Dressed in costume at a masquerade ball, she flees before revealing her identity to the handsome stranger, whom she had mistaken for another man. What is she to do now?!

Drake Sotherton, Duke of Sussex has just experienced the most earth shattering, sexual experience of his life and he has no idea who the masked lady is. Just returned to England and seeking vengeance for his wife's murder, Drake must now find the mysterious woman who made him forget, just for a moment, his true reason for being in England again.

When Drake finally discovers that Merriam is his masked seductress, he is also convinced that she can lead him to his wife's murderer. He tracks her down and suggests that she become his mistress for one season of decadent pleasure. But in the midst of their erotic adventure, Merriam learns that Drake may be hiding a deadly past. Fueled by rumors and fiery desire, Drake and Merriam move closer to each others hearts and each others secrets.

This is powerfully erotic romance and a great read, if you're looking for something a little more 'spicey'. Merriam finds the wanton hidden within herself and Drake finds the man he always wanted to be and with each other, they make a perfect whole. A Lady's Pleasure has everything you could ask for in your romance...passion, hot sex, great characters and a mystery to solve. You'll never guess 'who done it', I didn't!
