Marianne Nesbitt reluctantly agrees to join her friends the Merry Widows in seeking out lovers for the Season. Adam Cazenove would jump at the chance to warm the bed of his best friend's beautiful widow, if not for his recent betrothal. But he can't bear to think of another man in her bed, and foils her every attempt at seduction. Until a night of reckless passion changes everything.
Starred Review. Stunned when one of their number says she has taken a lover, the thoroughly respectable trustees of the Benevolent Widows Fund decide that life is passing them by and that they are going to do something about it. With that, the Merry Widows is born, and London will never be the same. Determined to take a lover in order to learn what was missing in her first marriage, Marianne Nesbitt seeks the advice of her best friend, Adam Cazenove, and finds, after a series of strangely sabotaged relationships, that love—and sizzling passion—was closer than she imagined. Funny, fresh, and outrageously original, this lively, Regency-set historical hooks readers from the start and sweeps them right on to the satisfying conclusion. A projected trilogy for the San Francisco–based Hern (Her Scandalous Affair). (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
