One woman in search of passion Miss Cecilia Hastings has achieved what every young lady hopes for during her first London season…in duplicate! I will definitely be looking for more from this author! Once the door was opened, there was no way she could go back. The language and setting details are so well done, a reader can get lost in that world. One blond, with soft blue eyes and the sweetest pair of dimples, the other dark, with a thick shock of brown hair that made him look quite rakish despite his diminutive size. I also ended up loving the heroine when I expected to dislike her: Cecilia is a serious Mary Sue. Henley gives Wexford the cut direct--apparently for the first time in the 6 months they had both been actively and ardently courting Miss Cecilia--but Henley is so distraught over the idea that later he apologizes and Wexford just shrugs it off.
Cecelia is considered the most rousing success of the season; secretly envied by all of the other debutantes, pursued by the two most eligible bachelors in all of England, but she wants more. Summary One woman in search of passion Miss Cecilia Hastings has achieved what every young lady hopes for during her first London season. Mady, I implore you to lengthen your story. When you sell a book as erotica, it better be erotic. So she issues a challenge to her suitors: a kiss, so that she may choose between them. Author: Miss Cecilia Hastings has achieved what every young lady hopes for during her first London season.
It was only 70 pages long, so a rather quick read. I was calm, cool and collected when the call came. So she issues a challenge to her suitors: a kiss, so that she may choose between them. But a surprising invitation to a late-night garden tryst soon sets them on a course that neither of them could have anticipated. And then came the crux of the book.
While you knew from the beginning where the story was leading, getting there was still an enjoyable thing. First,a young debutante in the 1800's,who can't decide on a possible marriage proposal from two men. Jeremy and Richard are amazingly not the rakes I expected them to be. At first, I wasn't sure I would make it through this story. There was a homoerotic charm about their friendship that was very intriguing. I get a kick out of books where the perfect girl ends up being a bit wild for the record, I also like books where the wild girl ends up respectable- as long as she gets to be naughty in bed! Second,what young lady in this time era would actually meet two gentlemen together at the same time to find out which one she wants to accept their proposal from. He feels a surprisingly strong connection with a quiet woman watching from a table full of tipsy bridesmaids, and he's delighted when she appears backstage after his set.
I get a kick out of books where the perfect girl ends up being a bit wild for the record, I also like books where the wild girl ends up respectable- as long as she gets to be naughty in bed! And such a book with a little romance added in? It was only 70 pages long, so a rather quick read. Both fell in love with Cecilia and have offered for her. Richard Huxley is a duke, and his closest friend, Jeremy Battersley, is an earl. Cecilia for being so young and inexperienced, is quite brave to take on the responsibility of such discovery with two well-known men. But, if you want to knock your socks off in a short read and like a lot of steam…this may be the right choice for you. These are not just any men mind you trying to obtain her favor these two men are the best of friends and have been since their first adventure after moving from the cradle to the adventure.
Miss Cecilia Hastings has achieved what every young lady hopes for during her first London season…in duplicate! Is it possible to have all that from just one man? It's left open in a bit of a lady-or-tiger kind of cop out ending. Both Jeremy Battersley, Earl of Henley, and Richard Huxley, Duke of Wexford are handsome, wealthy and kind, the epitome of proper gentlemen. I liked the contrast between the proper language used to tell the story versus the idea of this young, virginal woman going against societal norms and choosing to take matters into her own hands as far as her suitors are concerned. I was just discussing the other day with someone about what we look for in poly romance. But Cecilia doesn't want proper, she wants passion. Mady's other works have been recommended to me but now I'm not so sure. But the bestest, most wonderfulest, fantasticalest thing about the whole deal? She is the picture of having your cake and eating it too.
It is hot and fun. And these gentlemen quickly discover that love can take many forms. I tried to make my way through this novella, but my brain kept shutting down. The language is very much how they used to speak: proper and flowery and such. Lily thinks she can protect both their hearts with a short affair to let their passion run its course, something where they both know the rules and can explore the sparks between them without getting burned.
It felt like a summary of a larger work. I can't give anything away here, but the choices and suggestions that the main character Cecilia makes are completely ridiculous. I get a kick out of books where the perfect girl ends up being a bit wild for the record, I also like books where the wild girl ends up respectable- as long as she gets to be naughty in bed! The only reason for a marriage match was for both families to profit. One night in a garden changes everything and I have to say that it is amazing how well the author handled the ending of this book. Overall, however, this book was very well-written.
It isn't groundbreaking but it's sweet and sexy. This is a short but sultry erotic historical romance. To do this, she thinks up a gutsy scheme in order to make her final choice. She knew what she had to do. She's caught the eye of not one but two of England's most eligible bachelors. So what is a girl on the marriage-mart to do? She moved with an unconscious.
