“What do you find fascinating, my lady?” he asked quietly. He knelt down and slipped her muddy slipper off her foot before setting it aside.
         “You,” she answered honestly.
He smiled at that. It was an arrogant, supremely masculine smile. “Good. But what else?”
She looked away from him. But some part of her didn’t want to lie to him or evade his questions. “I have always been fascinated by food,” she admitted quietly.
“Food? Do you mean its preparation or its consumption?” He chafed the cold, damp skin of her foot between his hands to warm it.
“Its preparation,” she clarified. “As in, how to combine ingredients in a way that makes them most pleasing to a person’s palate.”
He looked intrigued. He bent down to kiss the top of her foot, his lips warm and soft. No one had ever kissed her there before, and it was…erotic. It made her pulse flutter and her cheeks burn with a flush.
He sat on the sofa beside her and stretched his long legs out, crossing them at the ankles. “So…you are a cook?”
“Not in a professional capacity,” she said. “But I enjoy going into the kitchen and collaborating with our cook.”
“What kinds of foods do you most like to prepare?”
“I enjoy all types of dishes. But my favorite? Baked sweets,” she admitted. “Biscuits, fruit pies, tarts, pastries, cakes…”
She looked away, eyes downcast, afraid of his reaction. No one of her class, except Jessica and her family, had ever accepted her fascination with cooking. The world in general believed that cooking was far below Beatrice’s station. She was lucky Cook allowed her into the kitchen at all.
“Look at me,” he commanded softly. Pressing one finger against her cheek, he turned her head to face him. “I’d like to taste one of your creations,” he said. The backs of his fingers stroked her cheeks. “A lemon pudding, perhaps.”
He trailed the finger from her cheek, down the front of her neck, and over her breast, gently swiping over her nipple. Even through the fabric of her clothes, the sensation was so strong she gasped aloud.
“Perhaps,” he said quietly, “I could lay you naked on our bed and eat the pudding off your skin.”
She shuddered.
“I’d lick off every bit of the sweetness, but that wouldn’t work, would it? Because once the pudding was gone, your skin would be even sweeter.”
Her eyes fluttered shut. He’d just given her the most erotic image of her life. Herself, lying naked across a bed while he licked lemon pudding from her skin.
His lips curved. “You’d like that, wouldn’t you? You’d like me to lick a sweet confection from your body.”
She gave a ghost of a nod, and his fingers swiped over her nipple again. She wrapped her fingers around the wrist of the hand that was touching her. “Wait. I…I want…”
“What do you want? Do you want me to take you back to the masquerade? Or…” He let the question hang, but she knew what he had been going to say.
Or do you want to stay?
And here it was. This was the moment of truth. Her universe balanced on a single point, and she had the power to choose. For once in her life, she was the master of her own destiny. This man wanted her—she could see it in the deep glint of his eyes, in the tightness of his jaw, in his posture, bristling with maleness. But he wouldn’t force himself on her. He was a gentleman, and if she wanted him to, he’d take her back to Jessica immediately.
He waited, gazing at her. Was that hope in his eyes?

“I want to stay with you,” she whispered.

I don't know about you, but phew, has the heat gone up a few levels here? *fans self* I really enjoyed this book, and you can read my 5 star review HERE.

  1. I'd love to have lived in the Regency or Georgian period. :) The Victorian was too stuffy!

  2. Definitely Regency England! I can't count any more the number of times I've daydreamed about this one. LOL :)

  3. It would have to be time travel, because I like modern conveniences too much.:) That said, probably the Regency period or the Gilded Age.

  5. I don't know that I would want to live in any other time period for good (I like my luxuries), but I would love to time travel and be able to return to the Regency period and I love those Highland warriors!!

  8. I love the 1920's. Jazz. Speakeasies. Lace and fur. The Charleston, something about that era I find alluring

  12. If I could live in any time period it would love to have been at Lithingow Palce in Scotland in 1542 in when the future and have been there for the birth of the future Queen Mary! How interesting it would have been to watch her grow up. My husband and I traveled there and looking out from the ramparts and seeing the countryside around us we were awed by the history that had taken place there and wondered if anyone at the time ever suspected the woman that small fragile child woud grow up to be!

  13. I wanna try living in the past where the rivers and the oceans were healthy and unpolluted, where the roads are not on land but in water rivers instead and where cars are not automobiles powered by diesel but boats with oars. That is the situation in my country's past.

  14. I guess the present is fine!

  15. If I could live in any time period what would I pick? Well, I love reading westerns romance, mail order brides, regency, historical,etc. I love it all. I love antiques, but I don't mind the time frame I was born in, 1958. I've had a great life and don't think I need to change it. But it is a good question. My grandmother was born in 1898 and I said she went from horses to vehicle to planes, space shuttles and all the inventions in her 90 year lifetime was amazing.

  16. I prefer the present hygenically and medically, but for the clothes and manners and such, I'm fascinated by the past

    ReplyDelete
  17. That would be awesome to win ! Another fine author to discover !

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would choose Edwardian or Regency; they're more "relaxed" eras !

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm so happy to have been chosen a winner-I'm so excited to be able to read in print
