Vicar's widow gets kinky in Ivory's latest dark tale

Stuart Aysgarth, the new Viscount Mount Villiars, doesn't know he's playing with fire when he inadvertently runs afoul of Emma Hotchkiss. True, the exquisite Yorkshire lady is a mere sheep farmer, but she also guards a most colorful past that makes her only more appealing to the handsome, haunted lord. Emma has come to him seeking justice—and Stuart is determined that she will not leave until she has shared her secrets… and his bed (watch for one spicy love scene that makes the novel's title quite apropos early on!). Her clever revenge scheme must fail in the face of his soft words and tender caress—and then he turns the tables on his bewitching adversary, seducing her into a daring deception of his own…

"I was in the mood to write a dark hero after writing a gentleman cowboy (The Indiscretion) and a cheerful ratcatcher (The Proposition)," Judy reveals. "It was such an interesting change to work with moody,
arrogant Stuart who thinks he always has everything
in hand. Ha. Emma is resourceful and practical, just what he needs to keep him in line. It's quite a little battle between the two of them—though of course it becomes a deep plummet into love that gets them both so confused they hardly know what to do with each other. More fun with romance Judith Ivory-style, I guess."
