Overview

An innocent letter inspires a wanton passion . . .

Virginal Beatrice Clemens had only the most noble of intentions in mind when she began a correspondence with Captain Percival Carterton, her brother's comrade-in-arms. She meant for her warm and open letters to ease a brave soldier's loneliness far from home. For Percy, however, each word was passionate fire, inflaming his need for the unsuspecting young nurse . . . and his desire to touch, taste, love, and possess her forever.

Now back in London, Percy has resolved to win the lovely Beatrice before she is betrothed to another man. Percy charts a course of brazen seduction designed to awaken Beatrice to hitherto unexplored delights, thereby compromising her reputation and forcing her to wed him instead. A bold plan of action involving scandal and surprise, it may open a Pandora's box of hot, unrestrained sensuality that could carry the virile soldier and his willing lady to ruin—or to breathtaking new heights of ecstasy.

From the Boer War front, Beatrice Clemens receives a letter from her brother Teddy telling her how lonely the soldiers are. She and her friends like roommate Lenora decide to write letters to some of Teddy's comrades in arms. A nurse, Beatrice sends notes to Captain Percival Carterton, which over time grow ardent and heated. When Percival arrives in London he looks up his pen pal angel and informs her he fell in love with her from her letters. Beatrice is stunned by his confession as she has a beau that she soon will be engaged to and does not reciprocate the officer's regard. Instead of retreating, Percival mounts a campaign of seduction to win the heart of the woman he loves. The latest Clemens clan saga is a delightful late Victorian erotic romance starring two likable protagonists. Part of the fun in this fine tale is comparing communication back during the Boer War with today's instant social networks that soldiers deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq can join. Filled with heated sex, fans of the saga will be held Captive by Leda Swann's enjoyable historical. Harriet Klausner
