Description

Alexandra Hawkins All Afternoon with a Scandalous Marquess Simon Jefferes, the Marquess of Sainthill, has done the unthinkable--he's fallen in love. The so-called "Saint" has spent his life gambling, dallying with women, and satisfying his every whim. And he fully intended to continue his wicked ways, until he met the mysterious, exotic, and irresistible Madame Venna--the one woman he can't have...and the only one he's ever wanted for more than an evening. The proprietress of the Golden Pearl, one of London's most exclusive brothels, Madame Venna takes pride in the lush, decadent club she's created. With a half-mask to conceal her identity, she's careful to safeguard something even more valuable--her heart. But Saint is determined to tear down the walls she's built around herself, and to finally expose the truth--that Madame Venna is a woman very much in love...with him.show more

Review quote

"Hawkins creates strong characters and dramatizes high emotion along with sensuality. Fans of Stephanie Laurens and Jo Beverley will enjoy this series." --Booklist on All Afternoon with a Scandalous Marquess "There are no men like the Lords of Vice, those dashing heroes created to steal hearts. Hawkins once more fascinates, with an emotional love story of the bad boy who meets his match in an extraordinary woman. Desire in disguise was never so sweet or passionate, and Hawkins hooks readers and draws them all the way in to the perfect ending." --Romantic Times on All Afternoon with a Scandalous Marquessshow more
