-All About Romance


A new and evocative Regency historical novel from rising star Meredith Duran, an author for whom, as Fresh Fiction said, “readers need to make room on their keeper shelf.”

By candlelight, she lures him…

Glittering court socialites and underworld cutpurses alike know that Adrian Ferrers, Earl of Rivenham, is the most dangerous man in London. Rivenham will let nothing—not the deepening shadow of war, nor the growing darkness within him—interfere with his ambition to restore his family to its former glory. But when tasked by the king to uncover a traitor, he discovers instead a conspiracy—and a woman whose courage awakens terrible temptations. To save her is to risk everything. To love her might cost his life.

At swordpoint she defies him…

Lady Leonora knows that Rivenham is the devil in beautiful disguise—and that the irresistible tension between them is as unpredictable as the dilemma in which Nora finds herself: held hostage on her own estate by Rivenham and the king’s men. But when war breaks out, Nora has no choice but to place her trust in her dearest enemy—and pray that love does not become the weapon that destroys them both…

Dear Author

Reviewed by Dabney on Mar 26 2012

Instead, I thought about Adrian and Nora and how much I cared for their story. I thought about how, yet again, you’d written a book I loved.

I loved the fast-paced feel of AT YOUR PLEASURE. Although the book covers fairly lengthy amounts of time, I still remain firmly within the book and was not confused. Meredith Duran has successfully mixed romance, history, and heart pounding mystery into a wonderful read!

Expect to suffer the doubts, fear, and shame that work against Nora and Adrian, and be forewarned: you will also frequently have the urge to smack one or both of the main characters upside the head.
