25527330Catriona, Lady Blayne is recovering from a most delicate situation. Driven to the brink of madness by love for her late husband, a young man too ill to meet the demands of the marriage bed, she teeters on the brink of scandal. Now she must face the carnal temptation personified by her husband’s cousin and heir, James, the new Lord Blayne. His sensual appeal, contrasted with his iron will and stern self-mastery fascinates her. She can’t help but ask: what if sensual indulgence is the only way out of her darkness? However, she is not free to explore the idea. There are those who seek to control the young widow, keeping her imprisoned through emotional manipulation and physical coercion. With her growing restlessness, the very people she loves and trusts the most are becoming an increasing danger to her sanity and safety.

James is determined to protect Catriona—but he will not soften to her again. She rejected him once and James can’t risk losing his heart a second time. As heir to the Blayne baronetcy, he must marry a woman socially and politically appropriate. Such a scandalously self-indulgent lady as Catriona won’t do. Yet the pretty girl he once knew has grown into a beautiful, curvaceous woman that is every man’s dream.

Especially his.

well its been a while since iv read this type of book (Historical erotica) but when asked to review I jumped at the chance because Natasha Blackthorne is one of my favourite authors and I always love her books.
 When I picked this book up it didnt take me long to get into it and it didnt take me long to finish either because I struggled to put it down. Now anyone who knows me knows im not a fan of ebooks. I love paper backs to much and I normally find it hard to concentrate  when I  read an ebook. but im happy to say that wasnt the case with this book. 

I felt like I was back in time and living the life of Catriona , And I found it very easy to understand what she was feeling. Natasha has yet again created another  main man which I found so easily to fall in love with.

Natasha has an amazing way with words and she has a knack of writing new and amazing storys .  This is one of the reasons why she is one of my favourite erotica authors.
