Happy Release Day: Beauty and the Earl by Jess Michaels

Beauty and the Earl (The Pleasure Wars, Book 3)
Best-selling author of historical erotica, Jess Michaels, has a new book out!

Liam, the Earl of Windbury, had everything when he held his secret lover in his arms. Until a feud between their families left her dead, his body broken, and his sister married to his bitterest enemy.

Wracked with guilt, simmering with rage, he’s spent a year in seclusion, seeing no one except a few servants as he does his best to forget the past and patently refuses to think about any kind of future.

When courtesan Violet Milford enters Liam’s lair, she’s on a secret mission to gather information for Liam’s desperate sister, who fears for his sanity, even his life. What she finds is a man scarred inside and out, whose dark, controlling sensuality hides the kind, wounded man within.

Violet awakens a sexual desire more powerful than Liam has ever known, and her stories weave a spell that begins to work its way past his defenses. But when the truth inevitably comes out, it could well destroy the love that is saving them both.

Warning: High level of steam!
He studied her. “You have always been around my circles.”
“Yes, but not fully in them,” she said. “I have not taken a titled lover before.”
He seemed surprised by that revelation. “Ever?”
“Not until I snuck into your private bath,” she corrected herself, moving toward him.
He cleared his throat and set his drink down on the sidebar with a clink that echoed in the suddenly quiet room. “And was it worth the wait?”
She met his gaze. There was hot, burning desire in his stare that made a low ache begin between her legs. One that had very little to do with her real purpose here, even though it would further that purpose.
“Are you fishing for a compliment, my lord?” she asked softly.
He took a long step toward her. “Do you have one?”
She bit her lip. “Was I not clear when we made love last time? Did I not properly express my pleasure?” He didn’t respond, so she walked toward him, only stopping when he was within arm’s length. “Should I tell you how I have thought of you as I touched myself in the days since? Or that I have awoken from dreams of your body inside of mine? Will that be clear enough?”
He made a low sound in his throat and grasped her wrist in an iron grip with his good hand.
She smiled. “I very much enjoyed every moment of our encounter in the baths, Liam. And I have thought of little else since we parted.”
“Then allow me to return the compliment,” he said, his voice rough with desire he didn’t seem willing or able to control. “Since you intruded upon my privacy and utterly shocked me with your seduction, I have thought of you every moment. I do not keep women, Violet. I will not keep you. Nor did I bring you here in order to share my supper. I want to take you upstairs to my bed and strip you naked. I want to have you until I cannot move, until I cannot think, until I can feel nothing but the slick remnants of fucking you all night.”
He pulled her closer. “If that is agreeable to you.”
