I read the prequel, EVERYTHING FORBIDDEN, and was so stoked to discover that book had a sequel (and many more to come after this one!) This book was different. I'm starting to love historicals now and I love Jeremy and Penelope's story. A tough, womanizer from a privately high-society and has a wealthy circle of friends had been asked to shut Penelope Norman up for her rude comments about their circle of men. Explaining to Jeremy that she has no right to talk about something so bad when she had yet to experience the true meaning behind their exotic nights. And with stuck up Penelope having her opinion, and keeping it locked in stone refuses Jeremy's idea of wanting to do good for their town and allow the women to know he can change, and not desire anything in a skirt. He wanted to help her cause, and she laughs at him at first. Then as the story progresses, she finds a friend in Jeremy, a very unlikely friendship unfolds between them all the while Penelope was receiving erotic letters from a mysterious admirer of hers. She agrees to meet with this man who demands he have her as his, they begin a lustful deal where her nights now belong to him, but he only comes to her as a mysterious lover in a mask. All the while, Penelope and Jeremy are keeping their friendship strictly just friends, Jeremy also introduces Penelope to his world and allows her to see the way he likes to live life is not so bad as she thinks. Then Penelope begins to fall in love with Jeremy, and begins to picture her mysterious lover as Jeremy. This story is beautiful, original, and very, very erotic! A nice read for a rainy day or before bedtime, but be warned!! This book is hard to put down. =)

This book was very hard to put down. It was a story full of love, lust, and finding of ones self. I can't wait till Jess Micheals next novel.

Sometimes you just want to throw away everything proper and just open yourself up to passion and everything it has to offer. This book gives you a glimpse of what happens if you do. Of course, it's just a fantasy but boy does it satisfy. Sensual and erotic, just how Jess Michaels does it.

I seriously loved this boo. It was such an enticing and exotic read. And erotic, too. I loved the whole idea of being a temptress and it gave me quite a stir!

In 1819 the 'Upper Ten Thousand¿ male aristocracy members are irate that the Widow Penelope Norman has challenged them for their sensual excesses she was sick of her late spouse¿s philandering and assumers other women detest their husbands¿ unfaithfulness. The Upper Ten Thousand choose a duke wastrel Jeremy Vaughn to end Penelope¿s campaign.----------------- Although he prefers to stay out of the mess, the challenge to his pride is too great from friends he has known seemingly forever so Jeremy agrees to end the reign of terror. He figures the easiest means to achieve success is seduce and blackmail Penelope into silence. In daylight Jeremy becomes a friend of Penelope at night he sneaks into her bedroom wearing a mask. He accomplishes his mission, but feels like he lost the war as he has fallen in love with passionate prude.--------------- The changing relationship between Jeremy and Penelope make for an entertaining Regency romance in which EVERYTHING FORBIDDEN becomes SOMETHING RECKLESS but worth pursuing. The lead couple makes this a fine read as he starts as a cad and she as a crusading prude over time respect and ultimately love flourishes. However, she loathes the overindulgences of the Upper Ten Thousand at the cost of women and children while he is a card carrying member. Fans will enjoy this fine tale of just who seduced whom.------------------- Harriet Klausner

So i love the book...but i can not resolve how it is possible to have the intimacy of a friend and confess all....but then not recognizr him in the next chapter as her secret masked lover who comes to her in the night....and speaks to her. Body size, voice, etc. It does not make sense...

Jess Michaels has become yet another new author that I have recently fallen in love with. I love her writing style and the sexy heat of her characters. This story is book 2 in the Albright series and Penelope is a great character. She is still estranged from her sister Miranda and now finds herself a widow some 2-3 years after "sacrificing" herself to help the family. She has taken up the cause of the married ladies of the ton, whose husbands are taking there pleasure outside the marriage bed. Along comes Jeremy Vaughn, the Duke of Kilgrath. His group of cronies seems to be personally affected by Penelope's crusade to end debauchery and he gets the short straw in a bid to put an end to her interference in their fun. Needless to say seduction and blackmail are part of the plan but of course our 2 main characters end up experiencing lots of yummy pleasures together. I love reading Regency Romance and if you add in mind numbing hot sex consider me sold. It is not often an HR gets to the erotic level but these books definitely apply IMO.

Jess constantly pleases! Can't wait to read Beatrice and Winifred's stories! Penelope and Jeremy were as worthy as Miranda and Ethan

A very nice story with a bit of hot romantic moments..........however........the potential for even hotter sex was there..........but wasted. Kind of let down when a certain scenario was mentioned but wasn't used. I was very dissapointed in that regard..........but the story in itself was.......enjoyable and left me smiling........

This was a good story, read it after Everyrhing Hidden. That book was a bit better, but this was also steamy, and the good parts were very good ;) . Love Jess Michaels erotic romances.
