Love Is In The Air

We start off February, the month of love, with a huge debut from the eagerly anticipated author, Renee Ann Miller. I can't tell you how many times I had to endure reading reviews from ARC readers on this one and salivating over its release. This promises to be a steamy historical read. I've had this one on pre-order for 2 months.

FEBRUARY  BOUDOIR  READ

2/1  TO  2/14

FIRST IN THE INFAMOUS LORDS Series:
Never Dare a Wicked Earl    by:       Renee Ann Miller

BLURB:

They are the infamous lords, unrepentant rogues whose bad behavior makes for good gossip among the ton. But these sexy scoundrels have stories no one knows. And it takes a special touch to reveal the true hearts behind their devilish disguises . . .

Known as a brazen philanderer, Hayden Milton, Earl of Westfield, is almost done in by a vengeful mistress who aims a gun at a rather essential part of his anatomy—but ends up wounding his thigh instead. Recuperating in his London townhouse, Hayden is confronted by his new medical attendant. Sophia Camden intrigues him, for behind her starched uniform is an enticing beauty better suited for bedding than dispensing salves and changing bandages.
 
Unshaken by his arrogance, not to mention impropriety, Sophia offers Hayden a dare: allow her ten days to prove her competency. If she resigns in exasperation like her two predecessors, she will be beholden to this wicked seducer. As a battle of wills begins, Sophia finds herself distracted by the earl’s muscular physique . . . and discovers that the man within longs only for a second chance to love.

Lingerie by: AdoreMe         Regency Phrase: Too ripe and ready by half = Always up to something ;)

This reads lingerie is such a beautiful piece. It's elegant and sexy. It's demure and naughty. It's sweet and steamy. The perfect pairing for this debut novel. The bodice is made of black stretch lace with the sweetest color of blushing pink so beautifully embossed that it almost shimmers. Matching satin ribbon sewn into the empire waistline and gathered with a tiny bow, pulls together the soft gathered chiffon tulle. It moves freely and the straps stay put. This Valentine's Day wear emphasis all the right places and is a complimentary style for any shape.

Vacation Slumberland

After Christmas I chose to do nothing else but read. Elizabeth Hoyt's enchanting novella took me away for an afternoon of total escapism. 

JANUARY BOUDOIR READ

1/1  TO  1/4

"Once Upon a Christmas Eve"     by:     Elizabeth Hoyt

BLURB:

Adam Rutledge, Viscount d’Arque, really rather loathes Christmas. The banal cheerfulness. The asinine party games. And, worst of all, the obligatory trip to the countryside. His grandmother, however, loves the holiday—and Adam loves his grandmother, so he’ll brave the fiercest snowstorm to please her. But when their carriage wheel snaps, they’re forced to seek shelter at the home of the most maddening, infuriating, and utterly beguiling woman he’s ever met . . .

Sarah St. John really rather loathes rakes. The self-satisfied smirks. The sly predatory gazes. Oh, and the constant witty banter rife with double meaning. But in the spirit of the season, she’ll welcome this admittedly handsome viscount into her home. But as the snowstorm rages, the Yule log crackles, and the tension rises, Sarah and Adam find themselves locked in a fiery, passionate kiss. If love is the true meaning of Christmas, it’s the one gift this mismatched pair can’t wait to unwrap.

Lingerie by: AdoreMe                        Regency Phrase: Fair gutfounded = Very hungry

What a wonderful week of reading. Lounging in this soft as silk and giving as spandex slip was a slice of heaven. Slimming cobalt set off by lacy cerulean blue makes a tempting combination and AdoreMe knows how to do it right. The only thing missing is a glass of eggnog.
