Her Husband's Harlot

Mayhem in Mayfair #1

I am a sucker for a good historical romance. And Her Husband's Harlot does not disappoint! I was very intrigued from beginning to end. Helena is naive when it comes to the marriage bed, but sneaking into a brothel quickly educates her and opens a flood of passion between her and Nicholas. Yet Nicholas is weighed with guilt thinking he is cheating on his wife. And that’s just the beginning of the book! I found this to be an exceptional Novel. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get lost in a good book, because I certainly was.
