The beginning of another great series from Julia Justiss. This is the story of a young wife who loses the love of her life in a carriage accident. She is devastated at the loss of her husband and knows that she never find anyone to replace him in her heart. She decides to become her father's political hostess for the Tories and help his cause. Lady Margaret is a superb political hostess and has found an outlet for the passion she denies herself.
Giles Hadley is a Whig who has been fighting for reform and getting his parties Reform Bill passed into Law.
He has no interest in getting married after his father divorced his mother for infidelity. He has no interest in Love but Lust is a different matter, and when he meets Lady Margaret the electricity that sparks between them is immediate and shocking.
He decides to pursue an affair with her and is floored when she is the one who suggests an affair.
Julia writes a beautiful love story with really steamy sex. I loved both these characters. They are both afraid of falling in love, but no matter how they try to avoid it, well you know. Add Giles's step brother who is jealous of them and a will stop at nothing to tear them apart. This is a lovely story that will make you happy and inpatient for the next book in The Hadley's Hellions Series.
