Sometimes giving in to temptation is the best thing you can do...
Goodman Thomas Marlowe needs a wife. He loves his neighbour’s bondswoman Rosalind Abramson but for all the wrong reasons. The carnal passion he feels for her is at odds with his vision of the perfect marriage—something shaped by the memory of the pure, pious union he shared with his late wife. Valiantly, he fights to keep his feelings hidden.
Rosalind yearns for the handsome Goodman Marlowe. Yet beneath his kind action lies a cool distance that tells her he cannot forgive Rosalind’s shameful past. She’s determined to deny an infatuation with a man who will never respect her.
However, Thomas cannot focus on finding a bride while the unsuitable Rosalind is always so close and so alluring. Now he’s about to take a teaching position in another town. It’s the perfect escape for a man tormented by unacceptable desire.
Late one night, in the midst of a summer’s hot spell, Thomas spies Rosalind in the woods, clad only in her shift, dancing in the moonlight. It’s really more than a man celibate for three years can bear. Thomas is in danger of falling into a sin so powerful, it threatens to challenge everything he believes in...
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of sensual spanking and issues surrounding previous death and grief. This an Erotic romance and uses the strong, graphic language and situations of erotic romance.
I'm truly hooked on Natasha’s works! I've not read much historical in my life, but have read a lot of romance and erotica. She meshes them all into sensual, seductive and touching stories that she has perfected telling ;)
Rosalind is in love! But there’s so much of her past that prevents her from allowing herself to indulge in her heart and soul. She fears being forever branded as a harlot once her past is truly revealed to Thomas. He is after all still morning the loss of his wife and has many morals that he lives by. What would he want with a woman who has nothing but herself, her love, her passion and her desires to offer him?
Thomas is a handsome widower that finds himself in love. His beliefs stop him for some time to approaching the beautiful and tempting Rosalind. He needs a wife and what he knows to be all of the right reasons for accepting one as a wife, are not Rosalind. He desires her with such extreme passion that it aches in his heart and soul. But is it truly not enough to make a marriage?
Together they discover forbidden pleasures and passions that burn soul deep for one another. Walls that were once held strong around both of their hearts and wills come crumbling down and all is admitted!
This is a very powerful, short and satisfying read that I recommend to all and any that enjoy a sensually thrilling, historical story.
