Beneath Lily Layton’s sweet and charming exterior beats the heart of a vixen—one with shocking and scandalous secrets and desires. But as a genteel lady, she confines her forbidden fantasies, like those about her employer’s devastatingly handsome son, to her diary…until she loses it.
Oliver Carlyle, Marquess of Ambrose, has finally found the perfect wife, a woman who will not hide from his dark, carnal cravings. He just needs to figure out who she is. When he has a secret rendezvous with a mysterious stranger, suddenly he starts to believe she might be the author of the diary.
He’s determined to find out who his mystery woman is…
His biggest fear—and deepest fantasy—is she may be the one woman he cannot have.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Get your fans out people, this is one seriously hot read!! The Scandalous Diary of Lily Layton is a fun, engaging and slightly kinky historical romance.
Lily, an intelligent, charming and innately sensuous widow has been taught to deny and hide her carnal desires as it’s shameful and unladylike to crave such things. The only place she can let that part of herself free is while writing in her diary, and when she loses it all hell breaks loose.
Oliver, the Marquess of Ambrose, is ready to settle down. Only he wants to find a woman who not only meets the social requirements, but who shares his most shocking desires. He wants a companion in every way possible and when he finds a most intriguing diary, he sets to find out who it belongs to as the lady seems to share his cravings for… naughty shenanigans.
“Easy… this first time we’ll go easy. I promise after I ride you four or five times, I’ll break in your pussy for the kind of wanton fucking you’re craving.”
A mysterious encounter in a secret passage, leaves both Oliver and Lily enthralled with one another, but ignorant of the other’s identity. At the same time, Oliver asks Lily, as his mother’s companion, to help him chose a wife from his mother’s “selection”. Interacting as themselves they realize their mutual attraction translates into incredible chemistry but their difference in station is only one of the many obstacles in even considering a courtship.
I absolutely loved this story. Oliver was one kinky lord and he really knew how to… do stuff. He was charismatic, bossy, sexy AF and the sweetest man at the same time. Lily had to fight some conditioning from her previous marriage, but Oliver was eager to help her out with that, and their encounters were off the charts hot. I absolutely loved them together, mysteriously rendezvousing or not. They were always hot but once deeper feelings begin to show it was even hotter.
The Scandalous Diary of Lily Layton is an easy to read historical with great characters, a delightful romance and lots of kinky, scorching hot sex. You definitely want to give this one a try.
