Richard, Marquess of Devon is satisfied with his ton marriage. His wife of five months, Lady Eugenia Devon,thought she was, too, until she found the book. Their marriage is one of respect and affection, with no messy entanglements such as love. Devon’s upbringing impressed upon him that gentlemen slake their baser needs on a mistress, not their gently bred wives. However, once married, he was no longer comfortable bedding a woman other than Eugenia. When she stumbles onto a naughty book, she begins a campaign to change the rules.
Lady Eugenia wants her very proper husband to fall in love with her. But her much changed and undeniably wicked behavior might inadvertently drive her confused husband to ponder the unthinkable—his perfect Lady has taken a lover. But the only man Eugenia only wants is her husband. The book can bring sizzling desire to the marriage or it might cause an explosion.

Eugenia placed her wine glass on the blanket, then shifted to her knees, leaning forward. No doubt the look on her face was somewhat disagreeable because Devon leaned back.
“Suppose a woman wanted to not do all those things? Suppose she wanted to sit in Parliament? Or visit Tattersall’s on a Tuesday for the auctions, or visit White’s, or a gaming hell?” Her voice rose as all the things she had been denied that she never knew she cared about bubbled to the surface.
Devon opened and closed his mouth several times before he spoke. “You want to go to a gaming hell?”
All the air left Eugenia’s lungs and she felt deflated, like a balloon that had a pin stuck in it. Of course she didn’t want to go to a gaming hell. What she wanted was to have her husband make love to her like he had his mistress.
There. She’d said those words, although just to herself. She was a deviant, and probably headed to hell upon her death. “No. I do not want to go to a gaming hell. That was only an example.”
“My dear, I think perhaps you have had too much sun, and it has weakened your constitution. You are overwrought and it is time to return to the house so you may rest.”
For heaven’s sake, he sounded like her mother. She stared open-mouthed at this man she loved, and had married hoping one day he might love her. Yet his ideas were so rigid, so—ton. But then, again, in all honesty, hers were the same—or had been until she’d discovered the book.
SEDUCING THE MARQUESS (Lords and Ladies in Love Series~Book 1) by Callie Hutton.
Lady Eugenia Devon AKA The Ice Queen’s had just heard her nemesis and her husband’s mistress, Mrs. Forestor just died in a carriage accident. She kept her usual cool smile in place until she was alone in her bedchamber, then she wanted to shout with joy! After stealing the book Secrets of the Bedchamber, and learning what passion they could have together. Now was the time to win her husbands attention before he took a new mistress, even though it was common practice. A wife in the early 1800’s on the ton in London was to be proper, produce children and run the household. They’re not supposed to be passionate or even want it, that’s for their husbands mistresses. But Eugenia wanted the love and affection and passion of her husband, *but he still held that a wife was not to be ravished. She was not to enjoy her husband’s attentions. She was far too sensitive and delicate for such. That privilege belonged to a mistress, even though she had shown him otherwise.(*direct book quote).*This was war. She might have lost a battle, but she fully intended to be the victor in the end.(*direct book quote).
Marquess of Devon heard of the death of his former mistress while sitting in his club. Ever since the night before he married Eugenia, he and Margaret had not had sex. They had been friends, played cards and talked. He just couldn’t think or bed of another woman other than his wife. Eugenia has started acting weird, changing her gowns, her hair and she hasn’t even left room on her dance card for him! After reading a gossip column in the newspaper, he’s convinced she’s taken a lover.
Will Devon and Eugenia ever get past their assumptions and come to terms of the love and passion they share for each other, or will they continue to be frustrated? You’ll have to read SEDUCING THE MARQUESS to find out. This historical romance novel was a delight to read, I enjoyed watching Eugenia grow and even question her husband who thought he knew what was right for their country. This was my first Callie Hutton book, but I enjoyed the twists and passion she added to this historical romance, I look forward to reading more of her work. I received an ARC copy via IndieSagePR through NetGalley in exchange for a blog tour review. Due to sexual situations, this historic romance novel is recommended for readers 17 and over.
