It is an evening for rakes and rogues, courtesans and demimondes, and lords and ladies in disguise, all wishing to sample the array of erotic delights around them. But this ball is not the talk of the ton, it is a taste of forbidden ecstasy. . .

Willful Surrender

Lilly had never dreamed that hiding in her brother's carriage would end in her arrival at a ball such as this. She should be shocked by the bawdy behavior before her, but instead she is intrigued. And when Vincent St. Jerome, London's foremost rake, offers to help her find her brother, she follows him to a room filled with peep holes in the walls. What Lilly sees is pure carnal pleasure and all she desires is complete sexual surrender. . .

Willing Seduction

Lady Wentland is a worldly widow who misses the sensual delights she used to share with her husband. So attending the Cyprian's Ball disguised as a courtesan allows her to sample the erotic pleasures she's missed--until she meets Winston Greyton, her brother's best friend and the one man she knows she might have once loved. She resists his first advances toward her--but the heat of their arousal soon ignites a fire of wicked, reckless passion. . .

"Willful Surrender¿. Her plan seemed simple when she hid in her brother's carriage to find him at a gala and prove his innocence. However, Lily never expected to end up at the Cyprian's Ball where she meets notorious rake Vincent, who wants her with a craving she shares.

"Willing Seduction". The Widow Grace returns to the house where her fondest sexual memories of her late husband occurred. At the Cyprian's Ball, she disguises herself as a courtesan hoping to taste some of what she lost when her spouse died. However, she never expected Winston, her brother¿s best friend to be there; Winston the star of her fantasies whom she plans to seduce into sexual nirvana this time.

These two heated erotic romances star likable lead characters finding perfect sex partners at a Regency Cyprian Ball. Although, the two novellas lack a sense of time, fans who relish their romances equatorial hot will appreciate the lead couples BEING WICKED.

Kensington Aphrodisia released the erotic Regency romance BEING WICKED by author Lacy Danes in February 2009 with a deeply provocative prose, elicited affairs, bondage, voyeurism and finding your destiny once upon a Cyprian Ball. Danes has given her fans a decadently sensual read that every word melts off the pages and into readers¿ hearts. Hiding in her brother¿s carriage, Lady Lillian (Lilly) Cunnington never imagined she would find herself attending one of the most debauched Cyprian Balls in all of London. Lilly is shocked that none other than London¿s premier rake, Lord Vincent St. Jerome is traveling along with her beloved brother. Lily is on a mission. She is out to proved that her brother is not the wastrel and rake that the town people are claiming he is. With her goal she accidental comes in contact with Lady Grace Westland who offers her some extreme and prevalent advice. For one night Lilly will let go of the structures of propriety to feel the luxurious sensations at St. Jerome¿s hands. Lord Vincent has one night to revel in his rakedom. After that, St. Jerome is out to procure a wife and be a faithful husband, but tonight the innocent ¿Veronica¿ charms him into forgetting his good intentions and ignites a passion he has never found before. He will do as she ask and help her find ¿friend¿ all the while waking this raven haired beauty to the sensual delights that only he can satisfied. Widowed Lady Grace Westland has been away from the sins of pleasure from the moment her husband passed away two years before. Still a beauty and young enough to turn the heads in the room an ex-lover tempts her into indulging him and let him escort her to the scandalous Cyprian ball hosted by a very close friend. When she arrived to the ball memories of what her life once was invades her senses. Once at the becking call love slave of her husband, Grace will not let any one control her actions and feelings ever again. But as grace mingles, reacquainting her person with old friends and feeling the one man she never expected to see here was her childhood friend, Winston Greyton. Shocked to see his fantasy come to life standing before him doing elicit things with someone other than him spurs Greyton into action. It has been a long time since he has seen Grace but the sparks of attraction between them are about to set of a maelstrom of intense passion. He will show this beauty that he can love her like no other and make her admit and submit to her darkest desires. BEING WICKED is two stories in one. I really enjoyed the way this story was written. There are four main protagonists, Lady Lily and Vincent St. Jerome is told through Lilly¿s section but interweaves with Lady Grace and Greyton¿s story. I found this to be hypnotic. There is never a point where you are jerked from one heroine¿s drama to the next. Danes has uniquely given readers a bird¿s eye view into all four characters world simultaneously. The major element of BEING WICKED that was appealing was Danes creative perception of all the main characters. One did not out shine the other. Nor did any one character shadow them other. Danes writing was set to a rhythmic tempo that keeps readers entertained while following along this lusciously provocative novelette.

This is a book I would never reccommend to anyone. The story is lame, the characters superficial. The author should stick to what she knows, and this type of book isn't it.
