They say he murdered his wife . . .Entering her seventh unsuccessful season, Beatrice Albright is beginning to realize that her beauty cannot compensate for her shrewish ways. A desperate woman whom no one wants, she must seek a man whom no one else will marry: the despised and mysterious Marquis of Highcroft, Gareth Berenger. Rumor has it he is a killer, but Beatrice is far more terrified of spinsterhood—and the company of her mother—than she is of Berenger's dark reputation. But Gareth, while intrigued by the alluring hellion's proposal, has a proposition of his own. A man of particular tastes, he will wed no woman unwilling to satisfy them. His bride must be adventurous, afraid of nothing, and eager to experience any passion and pleasure he can devise, no matter how shocking and taboo. If Beatrice agrees to a trial affair—if she can happily shed all her inhibitions—in the end they will be wed.And so the die is cast—as Beatrice and Gareth embark on an erotic path where danger awaits them at every turn, en route to a world of exquisite ecstasy where there is nothing forbidden...nothing denied.

Grade: C- (2.5 stars)I had high hopes for this book. Unfortunately, I found the heroine barely tolerable. Lame reasons for Beatrice's bratty behavior are explained. Garreth, the hero, was...okay. I did manage to complete this story about two ill-reputed people who try to determine sexual compati...
4.5 stars. The silly conflict at the end saves this from being 5 stars. It was kind of not needed. Still a really good book that I read in one sitting. HOT. No doubt about that!Thanks Michelle!
This one turned out to have anal sex in it, which is a no go for me. Well, there goes my $10. Too bad.
