Publisher's Summary

Seeking revenge, she discovers how delicious a case of mistaken identity can be…
Merriam Everett has always been regarded as a shy, docile creature. But for one night, Merriam the Mouse has become a temptress who will recklessly take her pleasure with the arrogant earl who once slighted her, and then leave him aching with lust. A fine plan, if Merriam had not just seduced the wrong rogue!
Drake Sotherton left England amid dark speculation and has returned to seek vengeance against Julian Clay, the man he believes murdered his wife. Convinced that the masked beauty who seduced him is Julian's pawn, Drake tracks her down and proposes that she become his mistress for the Season. Every sensual desire, every secret longing will be explored...and fulfilled.
But keeping his enemy close is a dangerous game. Merriam is an irresistible mix of innocence and abandon, and each encounter proves more soul-searing than the last. With a passion this wild, this wonderful, one season will never be enough…

Whoa! This is a hot one!,

Drake Sotherton, the Duke of Sussex leaves England years ago under suspicion of the murder of his wife and returns as the "Deadly Duke." His best friend, Julian Clay, the Earl of Westleigh, who seems to have been involved in some way with his ex-wife's death and also was the main accuser of pointing to Drake as her murderer, are involved again in a struggle over a woman. This time it is Merriam Everett, a plain widow, who overhears Julian make a comment about her being a "whey-faced widow." She seeks the guidance of a famous courtesan and changes herself into a luring beauty in order to attend a masquerade ball and lure Julian into a evening of unforgettable sex and then leave him wanting. A change of costumes and mistaken identity cause Merriam instead to have an evening of passion with Drake, who has no idea about Merriam's plan, and wants nothing more then to find this sexy beauty after this unforgettable evening of intense pleasure. He discovers there is some connection with her to Julian and takes the wrong meaning of the connection and decides to take her as a mistress and use her as a means for revenge. Merriam agrees only because she is drawn to Drake, not knowing what is going on around her and that danger is building. As the eroctism and danger increases, the mystery unfolds to an intense and surprise ending. Renee Bernard's story and character development and ability to create a well-developed story around well-written, passionate, erotic sex scenes is perfection. This story has the main ingredient for intense passion - vengeance. A truly pleasurable read and a book difficult to put down. I am looking forward to many more erotic historicals by Renee Bernard.

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Loved it for what I was not expecting!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Lady's Pleasure to be better than the print version?

Yes, I would liked to have followed along while I was reading it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I personally liked Drake. He was a mysterious man who was plotting and scheming and deeply hurt. I kind of related to him a little.

What about Michaela James’s performance did you like?

I liked how she gave Miriam a soft spoken voice. It really gave to her character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Your encourageable"-Miriam

Any additional comments?

What the book "snippet" doesn't tell you is that this is an erotica. It is extremely vivid. However it gives into the passion which Victorian England didn't want to show. Very good over all.
