Dorset, 1858

When Hannah's caught watching her late husband's cousin debauch the maid in the library, she's mortified—but also intrigued. An unpaid companion to his aunt, she's used to being ignored.

The black sheep of the family, Leo has nothing but his good looks and noble birth to recommend him. Hannah ought to be appalled at what she's witnessed, but there's something about Leo that draws her to him.

When Leo claims he can prove that women can feel desire as passionately as men, Hannah is incredulous. Her own experiences have been uninspiring. Yet she can't bring herself to refuse his audacious proposal when he offers to tutor her in the art of lovemaking. As the tantalizing, wicked lessons continue, she begins to fear she's losing not just her inhibitions, but her heart as well. The poorest of relations, she has nothing to offer Leo but herself. Will it be enough when their erotic education ends?

Book Lovers

I loved both parts of Improper Relations, the scorching sexual initiation of Hannah and the gently budding romance between her and Leo were equally wonderful and both left a lasting impression.

I started reading romance blogs, started looking at recommendations from other readers, and soon found a treasure trove of romance riches: the considerable backlists of Meredith Duran, Courtney Milan, Pamela Clare, Elizabeth Hoyt, Loretta Chase, Anne Stuart, Tessa Dare.
