In the Thrill of the Night
London, March 1813. As a member of the perfectly respectable Benevolent Widows Fund, Marianne Nesbitt has played the role of a perfectly respectable widow for two years. Yet after listening to her fellow widows discuss their plans to become “merry” widows, Marianne begins to believe that maybe it’s time for her to step out of the shadows of widowhood and seek a lover for herself. But what does she know about seeking a lover?
She turns to Adam Cazenove, her husband’s best friend and her personal confidant, to help her pare down a list of possible choices. She had hoped that Adam would fulfill that role himself, but Adam has secretly gotten himself engaged to a Society girl. Adam, shocked by Marianne’s request, begins to regret his engagement. He would grant Marianne her wish for a lover, but he would want much more than just a casual fling.
The author spins these two engaging characters around in a dance that is sexy, sophisticated, funny, and delightfully romantic. Egged on by a cast of secondary characters who are just as engaging as the main couple, Adam and Marianne will have every reader cheering for them as waltz their way closer to each other’s hearts.
