Diana Tiverton is looking for excitement before her wedding day. Her sister's brothel could be the answer. Diana begs her to let her masquerade as the madame so that she can watch to her heart's content without losing her virginity. But she gets more than she bargained for when buff Lucian Northcote, Viscount Pembroke, plays blind man's bluff with a bevy of women. Her enjoyment, however, is spoiled when the next man to play is her fiance.

Lucian is entranced by the changes in the madame, but he's puzzled when the usually unflappable woman runs. When he follows her and discovers Diana, he's helpless to anything but his desire for the betrayed bride-to-be. They enjoy a pleasant interlude of foreplay in his carriage before going to his townhouse. Her plea for him to teach her about the marriage bed culminates in love and passion for Lucian, but Diana's refusal to marry him makes him wonder if she wants to open a brothel all her own.

Witty, wicked and wonderful describe Page's Regency-set novel. Hot and heady scenes pique interest as well as applause when Lucian goes after his disappearing love. (dl $5.20)
