Experience Book 13 of The Rakehell Regency Romance Series Sorcha MacMurrough
On the eve of his wedding, Lawrence Howard's simple mistake regarding an address propels him straight into the arms of Juliet Lyons Dane, an unworldly young girl just up from the country for her first London Season.
Lawrence is convinced he is spending his last night as a bachelor with the capital's newest sensational Bird of Paradise. But his final fling brings with it the most shocking consequences.
Resentful of having been so compromised, and convinced he's been betrayed by her brother Matthew, a former business associate, Lawrence is determined to make Juliet suffer. He is certain that somehow she is part of a nefarious plot to ruin him and his family. That beneath her act of innocence lies an experienced woman of the world out to get whatever she wants.
But the more Lawrence learns of Juliet, the more he recognizes his mistake. Suddenly he sees that innocent or experienced, Juliet is the perfect woman for him. Can Lawrence make his wife fall in love with him before it's too late?
"Tell me what you're thinking right now," Lawrence demanded. "Thinking? Now?" Juliet gasped, her eyes already glazing over with passion as he moved under her and the coach vibrated over the ruts and fissures in the road. "Tell me." "That I've never known how such pleasure could exist. Oh my." "Look at me. No, don't close your eyes, look at me." She obeyed, fearful of the consequences, that he would pinch or twist the way some men had at soirees or assembly balls. Or worse still, that he would stop the compelling rhythm within her. "Tell me what it feels like." "Like my soul is being torn from me." His eyes narrowed. "A woman like you doesn't have a soul. Try again." "Like we're blending and fusing into a single entity. I can feel your heart beating with mine," she panted. "You haven't got a heart. Try again." "Like I want to take all of you inside me and never let go. Yet even as I do, you possess me utterly." He gave her a long slow caress at those words. "Yes, indeed I do. Then I'm just going to have to keep reminding you of that fact, aren't I? You're nothing and no one without me. Give up any notion of your family helping you, or you having been anything other than what you are now, what I choose to make you. Or not, as the case were. You're Juliet Howard now. Forget you ever heard the name Dane." "But I was never-" At her unwitting words which appeared to be of protest, he rose with her on his lap and flattened her onto the opposite seat. His body was never still upon, within her. "Tell me who you are." "Juliet Howard." "What are you?" "Your wife." "What else?" Mindless though she was with need, she was not going to say what he wanted her to. She was not. Juliet looked straight into his silvery eyes, and clamped her hands down on his buttocks, cupping the tight orbs as she arched up against him. "Whatever you think you want me to be, darling."
