Overview

His seductive rhythm calls to the passionate soul hiding within…

Jane Rollins is anything but plain, but to keep her position as housekeeper to a wealthy family, she is content to hide her beauty behind a dull façade. This deception has become second-nature to her—until dance master Sergio Fontini waltzes into her life.

While the other inhabitants of the house see him as a foreigner and beneath their notice, Jane sees strength, barely leashed power, and an aura of iron control—an irresistible, arousing combination.

Sergio sees through Jane’s disguise to the woman beneath, and the desires in her veiled gaze call to him like the utterly irresistible strains of a beautiful symphony. The circumstances couldn’t be worse, for seducing her will endanger both their livelihoods.

Yet there are lessons he cannot resist teaching her, steps of a dance that crescendos to her final surrender…

Warning: A deliciously seductive Italian unmasks a supposedly respectable Victorian woman and leads her into a lust-filled pas de deux.

Sensual submission infuses Richards’s arousing erotic romance set in 1846 London. Jane Rollins has spent years perfecting her disguise as a housekeeper, serving in the homes of London’s nouveau riche. Yet it takes Sergio Fontini, a jewelry designer masquerading as a dancing master, no time at all to see the passionate young woman hiding behind the guise of a mature matron. What follows is a seductive waltz that probes the intricacies of maintaining a façade within the bounds of personal integrity. The novella is light on plot, but abundant historical touches enliven the story and serve as a delicate counterpoint to the graphic scenes of passion. Bold characterization and liberal use of internal monologue provide a solid foundation upon which the titillating intellectual journey is built. Unfortunately, the potential displayed in Sergio and Jane’s first intimate encounter does not carry through to subsequent trysts. (Oct.)
