My Secret Addiction
There is nothing I love more than a sexy historical hero. Way back when I discovered romance novels by stealing them from my older sister’s book shelf, I realized there was something extra special about a man in a greatcoat. Or a man in breeches. And most especially a man divested of his breeches.
Maybe it’s the time-gone-by gentleman factor. Maybe it’s the potent lure of a horse-drawn carriage rumbling down an English country road while a sinfully tempting earl strips you of your gown and stays. There’s just no denying the attraction of the historical man. Some people crave cheeseburgers, others a crisp glass of wine. Me? I crave the 19th century duke, the medieval earl, the Regency gaming baron.
Ah, yes. The Regency gaming baron. Nothing sets my romance reader’s dial to swoon faster than the owner of a gaming hell who is bad boy to the core, a talented seducer, and oh-so-handsome.
Pierce knows how to melt a woman with a caress, a deliciously deep kiss, a smoldering look. Clarissa is no match for his charm and seduction. Soon, she succumbs to decadent passion with Pierce. There remains between them something more troubling than their difference in social classes, however, and it threatens to tear them apart.
As a writer, I can honestly say I’ve never written a steamier hero yet than Pierce. By the story’s conclusion, I was every bit as seduced as Clarissa, and I hope you will be too…
Scarlett Scott has loved romance novels ever since she was eleven and swiped her older sister’s books to read by flashlight in her closet. Her mother caught her, but she remained undeterred. A self-described promiscuous writer, she dabbles in all sorts of genres but loves erotic romance best. She lives with her hero and their adorable but occasionally evil puppy. Her other titles include Wicked Dirty from Ellora’s Cave and She’s on Top from Ravenous Romance.
