Overview


A fabulous debut novel of sensual suspense and one woman's erotic liberation in Victorian England.

Lady Georgiana Vernon, daughter of the Earl of Eastley, and Jeremy Staunton, youngest son of a viscount, have an unconventional relationship-at least for the upper crust in 1895. They meet publicly as friends, and privately as lovers. It's an arrangement that allows Georgiana the sexual freedom she desires-and continues to indulge in-as a guest at Penfield, where the most sought-after names in the country gather for Lord Laughlin's annual masquerade ball.

Then Georgiana initiates a torrid affair with the sexy landscape architect working at Penfield. She sees it as nothing more than a harmless but pleasurable indulgence. But when the relationship is discovered she becomes the target of increasingly malicious threats. During the night of the masquerade ball, these intimidations will come to a dangerous head, as the men in Georgiana's life reveal their own secret desires.

    Sex, romance, history, and real writing!

    This book has everything I look for in erotic romance, and then some. The sex scenes - and there are lots of them - are all heat, but there are also characters I found myself caring about. The heroine, Lady Georgiana Vernon, an earl's daughter, is trying to reconcile her free-wheeling independence with the Victorian society she lives in, and she's having trouble. A heated affair with the gardener -- excuse me, the landscape architect -- lands her in hot water, and her conflict with him, and the other people gathered for the big masquerade ball, kept me turning the pages.

    Georgiana's also got some interesting friends. Alexandra Niven is a nice girl without being insipid. Lady Loughlin, whose house is the setting for the story, is strong and sure of herself.

    My favorite character was actually Alphonse Gerard. He's not your usual romantic hero (although this book has a couple of those, too) - he's old and not even very good looking. But he's funny and he's kind, and the scenes he was in were some of my favorites.

    The best thing about the book, though, is the writing. It's funny to say in this genre, but Olivia Quincy is a little like Jane Austen gone wild. Her prose is engaging and the conversations sparklen -- it reads like something of its time. I enjoyed it not just as a romance, but as a book.

    heated late Victorian romance

    In 1895, free spirited modern thinking Lady Georgiana Vernon and Lord Jeremy Staunton are politely friendly in society; but at night with no prying eyes, they are wild lovers. Both enjoy their sexual escapades.

    As the elite gather at Penfield for Lord Laughlin's annual rustic masquerade bal, Lady Georgiana Vernon the sexually liberated daughter of an Earl meets the estate's landscape architect Barnes. They are attracted to each other from the first moment they set eyes on each other and begin a heated tryst. However, over the next few days their lovemaking soon leads to Barnes angrily accusing her of cavalierly trifling with his feelings especially when their affair becomes known. However, he never expected that his lover will become the victim of threats and accidents from an unknown adversary.

    This heated late Victorian romance is a great historical as the heroine learns a lot about herself and the feelings of others during her week at Penfield. Georgiana makes the tale as her attitude changes during the stay from a hedonistic selfish person to a woman considering the feelings of others. With a bit of suspense enhancing the strong story line, readers will enjoy My Lady's Pleasure due to Georgiana's rapid maturing.
