Description

"Society already believes she's a scarlet woman. Why not become one? Posing nude to appease her now ex-fiance perhaps wasn't the most prudent idea Beatrice Weatherly has ever had. With the photographs scrutinized up and down the ton and her brother running them into debt, Beatrice's hopes of making a respectable marriage are dashed. After one glance at Beatrice's infamous racy cabinet cards, wealthy, powerful Edward Ellsworth Richie is soon obsessed with Beatrice's voluptuous figure. His indecent proposal -- one month of hedonistic servitude in exchange for enough money to pay her brother's debts -- is one she can hardly refuse. Determined not to let the rogue best her, Beatrice sets out for the infamous House of Madame Chamfleur to learn how to appease Edward's well-known appetite. Soon the couple is playing out exquisite fantasies ... and feeling emotion that goes deeper than flesh. But Edward harbors a shocking secret, and Beatrice must decide if she's prepared to give up everything for a man who can offer her nothing, but who means everything"--P. [4] of cover.
