Overview

Malvina, Lady Heaton to society, was widowed and usually fairly content with her life. Her lover proved an ardent young man, but recently she felt a bit bored with his conversations. Then Mr. Matthew Bradshaw, a handsome tradesman and self-made man, pays her a visit to request a favour.
Their attraction proves instantaneous, but definitely unwise. Even after several meetings, Mr. Bradshaw seems unaware of how to proceed. Does Malvina dare to invite him into her boudoir?

During her girlhood, Stephen Jourdain had been a relative of the Vicar's and she had been friendly with the Vicar's daughter in those days. Flirting with him had helped her to relieve the boredom.
Now she was a widow and their friendship had ripened. When the servants let him out, he would pretend to ride off. Instead, he would put his horse in an outbuilding near the gates and settle him for the night before slipping back into the house by a side door.
