ARC: A Scandalous Affair by Karen Erickson

Sep 6, 2012

Book 3
The Merry Widows Series
From the moment Daphne, Lady Pomeroy, meets the mysterious Marquess of Hartwell at a masquerade ball, she's determined to seduce him. The handsome, charming man cannot possibly be the cold, calculating lord who Society calls "Black Hart." Risking everything, the lonely widow invites the elusive Hartwell to her dinner party…for two.

Hartwell's arrogant reputation is built on a lie. For he has a shameful secret that keeps him in the shadows: a stutter—his downfall since childhood. He'd rather keep his mouth shut than look the fool. But he's shocked to discover that in Daphne's company—and in her bed—his stutter vanishes.

After one wanton evening together, Daphne is hurt when the lord lives up to his Black Hart name. Yet his reasons for leaving surprise even him. Now he must confess everything or risk losing Daphne forever…

I gave this book a 3

A  Scandalous Affair by Karen Erickson was a fun read, a great short story with all the passion of a novel.
Lady Pomeroy sets her sights on the handsome, Camden, and there was nothing to deter her from her prize. I enjoyed the fact that the main character had a flaw, although he did seem a bit too shy for my taste.    I wish there had been a couple more pages of the story, maybe a bit more conflict between the lead characters. I will definitely be placing Ms. Erikson's titles on my TBR pile.
