Abandoned by her husband on their wedding night, Maggie, the Marchioness of Sandhurst, longs for a raging passion to free her from her lonely life. A devastatingly handsome stranger at a masque ball promises just the sort of distraction she craves. But after a night of scorching lovemaking, she wakes to find him gone.

Simon, the Marquis of Sandhurst, is horrified to discover the masked siren he bedded is his wife, a woman he vowed to never touch. He shouldn’t want Maggie, but can’t resist her now that she’s been in his arms.

As the truth unravels, husband and wife are estranged no longer, spending their days and nights exploring the desire burning hot between them. But when Simon’s past comes back to haunt them both, their newfound happiness could be forever dashed.

A Romantica® historical erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Enjoy this exclusive excerpt:

Her frown grew more severe as she stepped into the chamber at last, prodded by her self-disgust. She had thought she was made of sterner stuff. Maggie forced herself to recall that while his kisses melted her bones, he had treated her abominably. He was a cad.

She was in control. Yes, she was. She had to be, or else she was hopelessly in his thrall, and that simply wouldn’t do. Not for even one moment. Her husband could not be trusted. His latest misadventure had reminded her, in somewhat mocking fashion, of precisely that.

Double drat him. She cleared her throat, summoning up an impression of her fierce mother. “Simon?” Her gaze darted about, but she could see precious little other than the hulking silhouettes of chaises and settees that were likely long since out of mode. No answer. She strode deeper into the room, swearing that she could smell him. “If you are in this chamber, it would be in your best interest to show yourself at once.”

She attempted to peer into a dark corner, waiting for his response. None was forthcoming until, after what seemed forever, his familiar voice stroked over her senses like a lover’s caress.

“What shall become of me if I don’t?”

A shiver of anticipation danced over her skin. At last. He had certainly led her on a merry chase for much of the day. She spun in a slow circle, still unable to locate him. “Where are you?”

“Perhaps you ought to find me.” Though his voice was low and velvety, there was an undercurrent of humor.

He was amused, was he? Her gaze narrowed as she skirted what appeared to be an escritoire and ventured into the quadrant of the chamber where his voice seemed to emanate from. “You are a beast,” she informed him. “Have you no conscience?”

At her question, she shook her head, answering herself. “Foolish, wrong-headed me. Of course you haven’t a conscience.”

“I have a conscience,” he spoke up, sounding a touch indignant. “I simply ignore it.”
