Caroline Broadhurst is about to take a lover -- at her husband's command. For fifteen years, Caroline has done everything her much older husband has desired -- except provide an heir. Now he has given her an ultimatum: seduce a suitable gentleman and bear a son. Caroline would never think of bowing to such a shameful order, but then she meets Jack Applegate.

Jack has longed for the beautiful, untouchable Caroline for years, but the chasm between them was too wide to ever dream of crossing. Now, fate and passion have thrown them together, but the potential scandal threatens to smother their love. And when a violent secret comes to light, only a terrible sacrifice will prevent the flame of their affection from being snuffed out forever. . .


I am not a big historical romance fan but I am starting to get into them recently and this was the first that made me want to read more. 

Caroline's husband (who is in his seventies), he demands she have an affair and produce a child, and it must be a son, that will become heir to her husband's mill. Caroline is appalled at her husband's request. She has been nothing but a good wife for the past fifteen years and wants to be a free woman and take over the mill after her husband dies but she will not get anything if she doesn't become pregnant. So her brother comes along for a visit with men who have no issues with having affairs but they all turn out to be duds. There is a man, however, that she thinks about whenever she pictures herself having an affair with someone. Too bad he was badly injured in an accident at the mill, oh, and her husband despises him.

Jack knows he has nothing to offer Caroline but he has watched her for years and yearns to be a good enough man to be able to win her love and affection, but he won't be able to do anything about that if he can't make it to an appointment in London with a manufacturer. After many late night book readings by Caroline, she encourages him to make the trip to London. When he gets there, her is told he is not physically able to do the job that he wants. Feeling like nothing can go right in his world, he manages to get back home to Caroline and comes up with a brilliant idea to make his crutches more comfortable using a material called rubber. Meeting Caroline when he gets back, he discovers they did succeed in getting her pregnant but they have Mr. Broadhurst to worry about. Many signs are indicating that he may be a murderer.

Most of the book was great reading because the dialogue kept you flipping pages and then all of a sudden there is craziness going on that made it all the more enjoyable. Who doesn't love drama? Even if you aren't a historical romance reader, you should still give this book a chance. You won't regret it. :)


Not usually a fan of historical romance but really enjoyed this one. 

Just enough sexually charged reading to make me sweat-in the good way of course ;)
