NOT PROPER ENOUGH
With her engaging, complex characters, knowledge of the era and a sharp ear for dialogue, Jewel creates a nicely written, highly sensual and emotional love story.
With her husband dead four years, Lady Eugenia Bryant is in London to guide a young miss through her first season. Being back amidst the ton doesn’t prepare her for coming in contact with Grenville Foxman Talbot, Marquess of Fenris, a man from her past. Eugenia tries to ignore the surprising sexual chemistry between them, but Fox is determined to gain her love. Unable to resist the physical pull between them, Eugenia and Fox begin an illicit affair. She sees a side of him she’s never seen before. Can she love two men — one who’s gone forever and Fox, who makes her feel alive? (BERKLEY SENSATION, Sep., 304 pp., $7.99)
