Ethan Carrick wanted more for his brother Charles than the shell of a man left confined to a wheelchair and broken by injury as well as the loss of his wife after the war. Going to yet another party of the ton was not his ideal of a perfect night but spying the beautiful Miss Poole gave him hope he could find a way to make both himself and his brother happy once again. Getting asked to be the one to find the chit when she escaped the clutches of Graves was a boon but the payment he receives from the comely Miss is more than he ever expected and something he needed to find a way to keep her within his grasp.
Violette Poole had come from France to make amends with her estranged father but her thoughts of him were sorely compromised when he only wanted her to return so he could give her away in marriage. Richard Graves was a vile man she wanted nothing of but he held enough over her father’s head to make him accept her virginity as payment due upon their wedding bed. Running away to a brothel was the only idea she could come up with but her plan was short lived when the handsome Ethan Carrick, under orders from her father, finds her .
Charles could see the woman his brother had brought to their home meant more to him than he was admitting but it had been so long since he felt anything remotely sexual he too was caught up in her innocence and her sexual awakening. His physical injury had not been the only thing to keep him out of society. His empathetic ability, awakened during the war, bombarded his senses. His senses were screaming to him that the woman now hiding within their home was more than willing to accept the fact that both brothers wanted her and would do anything to keep her by their sides.
I really, really enjoyed this little ménage tryst. Sexy, dangerous and a little risqué, this book kept me clicking my ereader from page to page as quick as I could consume the words. Ethan and Charles have gone through more than enough battles in their lives but are willing to do so again to protect an innocent from the depravity of a man they both knew as a monster. Keeping the woman within their protection was not only a way to save her but with her introduction she saves them from the hidden and secluded lives they had retreated to. A fantastic erotic afternoon escape with two handsome brothers and their very liberal French lover.
