Megan Frampton turns up the heat on one bride-to-be and her oblivious bridegroom in this steamy and scandalous eBook original novella of Regency romance.
It is with great discretion that this columnist discusses the sensitive topic of undergarments. Some ladies, it seems, do not pay strict attention to what they wear under their gowns. A crucial error, my ladies.
Lady Violet knows Lord Christian Jepstow is interested in women. The problem is, he hasn’t seemed to realize that Violet is a living, breathing woman—a woman with needs. Which is a huge problem, considering the fact that Violet and Christian are betrothed. Violet has no intention of saying her vows without knowing if her husband has the capacity to love her properly, so she does what anyone would do in her situation—she steps into his study and offers to take off her clothes. What happens next could be an utter disaster . . . or it could be surprising, seductive, and sizzlingly sexy.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from the Loveswept title Hero of My Heart.

I love to find new authors and I just read Megan Frampton's novella. She placed a betrothed couple in a locked study and turn up the heat. Christian is a man with his head in books, languages and mathematics. Violet is a passionate woman and thinks her betrothed does not see her as a woman. Christian's sister leaves him with a newspaper column to write about ladies underclothes and Violet volunteer to be his research. This novella is steamy and funny. I give it 4 fingers up and 8 toes.
28 pages of actual story. Having read _What Not to Wear_ first, (does anyone know how you can underline a book title on the Nook?) at least I already knew who Violet and Christian were. It's definitely better if you read that story before this. Also, that one is a much better story. I can see why the author was tempted to end the story where she did. It made for a short and sweet ending. That being said, for the reader, it would have been more satisfying had there been a chapter of epilogue, telling us how the passion continued between them after marriage and a couple of children, and how Christian reconciled this with his academic pursuits. The quick ending just felt jolting to the reader, like there was no transition back from the story to the real world. It felt incomplete.
It was ok. Wish it was longer and had more of a story line. But otherwise it was good.
It was ok.. Christian is writing a column about ladies undergarments and he needs a subject for research. Violet, whom happens to be his betrothed and in the right place at the right time, volunteers to assist in his research. This is the perfect opportunity for Innocent Violet to challenge Christian’s passion. It was ok for a very short 36 page novella. Its probably a 2 1/2 star read for me. We get to peak in on a “moment” that Violet and Christian have and it’s a very hot and sexy moment. There were some references to cows that were a little disturbing in the very beginning but I think it may be an inside joke the author has with someone named Scott. This is my first time reading Megan Frampton, but I may try some of her other stuff.
Waste of $0.99.
