HER LADYSHIP'S COMPANION
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England, Scotland
Collins' carefully crafted story gives readers a different view of the Regency era. She writes about a man and a woman from vastly unconventional backgrounds, and a love that knows no bounds, in this intensely passionate, sexually charged and deeply touching romance.
Lady Bella Sterling is abandoned on a Scottish estate by her verbally and physically abusive husband. She lives a lonely life, tending her roses, and enjoys the occasional visit with her cousin Esme. Esme decides Bella needs a man and she sends her one, Mr. Gideon Rosedale, who makes his living by pleasuring wealthy women. Bella finds Gideon not only handsome as sin but also intelligent, well read and a gentleman. He could easily pass as a member of the aristocracy.
Gideon senses that underneath Bella's veneer of propriety is a very sensual woman. Though she's an innocent in bed, Gideon patiently introduces Bella to pleasure. Bella is in love with Gideon, who will soon leave. Do they stand a chance at forever? (BERKLEY SENSATION, May, 330 pp., $14.00)
