Improper Relations

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?

This is an historical erotic novella just the way I like them...spicy yet also very sweet, with an unlikely couple you will find yourself rooting for. The story is rich with historical detail, and I especially loved the descriptions of the English countryside when Hannah left the residence of the Marchioness.  Juliana Ross is a fresh new voice in historical romance I hope to see more of in the future.
