A sensual new series by 10 time USA Today bestselling author Jess Michaels
After nearly a decade of marriage, the Marquess and Marchioness of Egerton are going strong. A power couple with an intense physical connection. Only Elliot knows a secret about his wife. He knows that Merritt was torn away from her first love, Peter Reid when they were very young, hurtling her into their arranged marriage instead. So as her birthday approaches and they head to a secluded retreat for a week of pleasure, he has a very special gift in mind.
Merritt cannot believe it when Peter Reid arrives at the cottage her husband has let. Believes it less when Elliot suggests that for this week she could have every fantasy she ever imagined…with both men. It’s a suggestion impossible to refuse and she surrenders to pleasure more powerful than anything she’s ever experienced.
Peter is not the same man he was when he lost Merritt. Now a celebrated playwright, his patron none other than the Marquess, himself, he has more confidence in himself and what he wants. He wants Merritt. And he wants Elliot.
The question remains if the three can take a week of intense passion and allow it to become a lifetime of love.
Heat Level: Proceed with Caution
Jess Michaels really nails steamy historical romance and Their Marchioness might be her best yet. Elliot and Merritt are a married couple and Elliot decides to give his wife a gift, a week with her first love, and him. Peter is a playwright who was unable to marry Merritt because of their class differences and his patron is Merritt’s husband. But this is the first time they’ve been reunited. But even more than just the steam and the reunion between Merritt and Peter, there’s also an underlining attraction between Peter and Elliot which gets explored. I will always favor MMF over MFM and I loved the exploration of a relationship between of three of them. Also, this adventure with Peter allows Merritt and Elliot to cross the bounds of their arranged marriage and admit their true feelings. And determine how important Peter is to them as well. This book was on the shorter side and a lot of the scenes were very sensual but there were definitely emotional moments as well!
