THE WICKEDEST SECRET . . .
Major Nathaniel Grey is free to bed whomever he wants, whenever he chooses, and that’s exactly how he likes it. His only loyalties are to country and the two friends he served with-brothers he’d do anything for. So when one of them is gravely injured and asking for his little sister, Grey will move heaven and earth to bring her home. He’s greeted not by the gangly girl he remembers, but a stunningly beautiful woman holding a loaded musket. And he’s utterly captivated by her . . .
IS A SECRET SEDUCTION
Once upon a time, Emily would have loved nothing more than a stolen hour with her brother’s best friend, the dashing officer who captured her heart and soul. But things are different now-and so is she. Gone is the eager young woman who believed in love. In her place is a widow weighed down with secrets who desperately needs to disappear before they’re revealed. But Grey’s sinfully sexy smile offers protection unlike anything she’s ever known, tempting her to risk everything . . . even her heart.
You know the sex scenes are going to be steamy and plentiful when the book opens with oral sex being performed in a public setting. And that’s just the beginning! So many hot scenes, especially the one in the carriage.
But if you’re looking for more than just super hot sex scenes, this book also had a great story and well developed characters, along with a mystery that plays throughout the book. And I really enjoyed that Anna Harrington didn’t play much into the trope of: I love him, but I can’t let him know. There is a little bit of that later on in the book, but for the most part, Nathaniel and Emily are very attracted to each other, and they just go for it.
Harrington’s descriptions of the architecture, landscape, and fashion of the times was wonderful to read. The details she describes are titillating, and made me want to be alive during that era. This is the first book of Harrington’s that I’ve read, and I see many more in my future. Although this is the second book in The Secret Life of Scoundrels series, I don’t think you need to read them in order.
