Overview

Owner of one of the most successful brothels in London, Madame Marie Marchander has seen and done it all. Jaded by the hand life dealt her, she gave up on love the night her virginity was auctioned off twenty years earlier. But then the boy, now a man, she once loved walks in to her establishment.

Jonathan Pierce, Baron Heartfield, had waited too long to save the woman he loved. A man no longer bound by the vows taken as a boy nor under the influence of his father, he is determined to woo and win the heart of the only woman he ever loved. The fact she was forced in to prostitution is of little consequence beyond the guilt he bears for not interceding with her father.

Resolved to prove to Jonathan that she is not in need of saving, nor is she an appropriate wife, Marie agrees to take him as a lover for six months. Steadfast in his love, he launches an assault on her heart with all the strategy his years in the military afford him. His only goal, to reclaim her love.

Meet the Author

Sorcha Mowbray is a mild mannered office worker by day…okay, so she is actually a mouthy, opinionated, take charge kind of gal who bosses everyone around; but she definitely works in an office. At night she writes romance so hot she sets the sheets on fire! Just ask her slightly singed husband.

She is a longtime lover of historical romance, having grown up reading Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught. Then she discovered Thea Devine and Susan Johnson. Holy cow! Heroes and heroines could do THAT? From there, things devolved into trying her hand at writing a little smexy. Needless to say, she liked it and she hopes you do too!

Readers are again transported to the sexy world of women from the wrong side of the tracks finding HEA with men who see past their outer trappings to the deserving woman beneath. In Love Reclaimed former loves are torn apart by Fate who meet years later to try to salvage the love they once felt for each other only to find that they've both changed but still find much to draw them together. Marie has been betrayed by Fate and a father who sold her to the highest bidder. She never wants to feel that way again, as if she has no control over her own life. The renewed emotions and feelings of love Jonathon expresses towards her scare Marie who's treated love as a business deal since that fateful day. Even though she too still loves him she demands that their time together be like a business deal as she swears to herself that she'll prove to him why they don't belong together. What ensues is one naughty encounter after another with each getting steamier than the last. The scenes start off rather vanilla and then move to use of toys and finally a ménage. Jonathon adored Marie in her younger years and would've married her had not their families gotten in the way. After living a well-mannered life with a quiet wife he returns to convince Marie that the time has come for them to be together. Though he finds her changed he's intrigued by the woman she's become and jumps wholeheartedly into the sensual games she introduces him to. Not only are the bedroom scenes sensual but so too is the dialogue between them that crackles with sexual tension. Seeing their inner demons battle for supremacy is extremely entertaining and as Marie uses sex as a weapon it's not always clear who will win. Jonathon's so desperate to have her that he's not above using sympathy as a life-altering event befalls them late in the story. This is a fast-paced story that features two likable characters engaged in a sexy battle of wills. This decadent delight beautifully balances steamy sexual encounters will intensely emotional characterizations that has me rooting for the main couple's HEA every step of the way.
