Her Lovestruck Lord
by Scarlett Scott
Book two in the Wicked Husbands series.
Abandoned by her husband on their wedding night, Maggie, the Marchioness of Sandhurst, longs for a raging passion to free her from her lonely life. A devastatingly handsome stranger at a masque ball promises just the sort of distraction she craves. But after a night of scorching lovemaking, she wakes to find him gone.
Simon, the Marquis of Sandhurst, is horrified to discover the masked siren he bedded is his wife, a woman he vowed to never touch. He shouldn’t want Maggie, but can’t resist her now that she’s been in his arms.
As the truth unravels, husband and wife are estranged no longer, spending their days and nights exploring the desire burning hot between them. But when Simon’s past comes back to haunt them both, their newfound happiness could be forever dashed.
A Romantica® historical erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
It wasn’t long before she’d trounced on his toes. She was an abysmal dancer, he discovered, almost gratified to find something at which she did not excel. For it surely seemed to him that in most ways, his wife was perfection. She laughed up at him, the happiest he’d seen her, and it struck him that this was what she’d meant. Unabashed, raw happiness. Her cheeks were flushed, her coiffure hopelessly defeated, the silk of her blue gown perhaps ruined forever, and yet she was glowing, tilting her head back to laugh as if she didn’t care who heard her. It was infectious, and soon he was laughing along with her as they twirled and she trod on his instep.
“Devil take it, you’re a horrid dancer,” he told her as she laughed at another misstep.
“I am,” she admitted easily. “A proper gentleman would keep that observation to himself.”
“I begin to think I’m not a proper gentleman.” He stopped them and yanked her into his body, tipping up her wet chin with his fingers. “After all, a proper gentleman wouldn’t do this.”
He kissed her, through the rain and the cold and the fear that he was falling under the spell of the tiny American in his arms. Her hands flitted to his shoulders, her mouth opening to him. Their tongues tangled. He relished the crush of her breasts against his chest, the heavy weight of her skirts against his painfully hard cock. She smelled of roses and autumn.
He wasn’t going to last much longer. He had to have her.
