Picking up where Scandalous Lovers leaves off, Schone gifts readers with another bone-melting love story that blends unbridled passion with the shockingly inhumane realities of Victorian marital law and fills the pages with strong, determined characters who take on the establishment-and sometimes each other. Part of Schone's "The Men and Women's Club" series and based on a real court case that changed British law, this boldly erotic romance is meticulously researched and takes a feminist stance on women's rights that will resonate with women today. Schone is one of the groundbreaking writers of erotic romance, and her writing, while stunningly explicit, is exceptional and has a graceful quality that sets it apart from the rest. She lives in Roselle, IL. Note: Schone suffered a serious heart attack on Christmas Day and as of this writing is in the hospital recovering satisfactorily.
