AT THE EARL’S CONVENIENCE
Amazon No. 1 Bestselling Regency
Nominated for the RONE AWARD
Against her better instincts, heiress, Miss Selena Wakefield, accepts Giles Devereux, Earl of Halcrow’s offer of marriage. The handsome earl admits he must marry for money, as he needs to save his crumbling estate, Halcrow Hall, and produce an heir.
When Giles resigns his commission in the army while England is at war, members of the ton cut him.
The earl has a rakish reputation, and Selena fears she may be leaving her calm, organized life for one of disorder and heartbreak. But she never expected what lay ahead.
“Don’t think I’ll live with you without the pleasures of the marriage bed,” he warned, breaking into her thoughts.
“Oh! Do hush, my lord.” Her face grew hot and she glanced around. Another couple stood not far away but seemed engrossed in their own conversation.
“I wanted to make that plain.”
She suppressed a shiver of anticipation as his strong, agile body leaned toward her. She found herself wondering what he looked like naked, the feel of his skin, the muscles and bones beneath. The tautness of a male body against the softness of hers. It made her hot to think about it. She swallowed. “Then ask me properly.” Had she gone mad? This was a recipe for a broken heart if ever there was one.
