A vibrant, passionate Spanish beauty, Graciela never imagined she’d be a widow at such a young age. But when her husband, the Duke of Autenberry, dies, she finds herself alone—a Dowager Duchess with two grown stepchildren. But she’s determined to live a full, satisfying life… and decides to take a lover for a single night.
Lord Tucker has been best friends with Marcus, the new Duke of Autenberry, since they were children. He could hardly believe his eyes when the elderly duke married a woman as stunning as Graciela, but loyalty to the family that has always welcomed him—and the scandal of wanting his best friend’s stepmother—keep him from voicing his desire for the Dowager Duchess.
That is, until Graciela offers Tucker one wild night in her bed and it’s too tempting to resist. But what was supposed to be a single passionate encounter soon turns into an affair of the heart.
I really enjoyed reading this book!! This story is full of scandal. From some of the settings to the relationships between the main characters, it is scandal after scandal and any historical romance fan will have a permanent smile as they get drawn in to find out if the scandals are exposed. It makes me so happy to find an author who isn’t afraid to allow her characters to explore their wild sides to find their happiness. I can not wait to read more of her books and to add this one to my collection.
