They are masters of seduction, London’s greatest lovers …
Renowned for his bedchamber prowess, Ransom Seymour, the Duke of Ainsley, owes a debt to a friend. But the payment expected is most shocking, even to an unrepentant rake—for he’s being asked to provide his friend’s exquisite wife with what she most dearly covets: a child.

Living for pleasure, they will give their hearts to no one …
Lady Jayne Seymour, Marchioness of Walfort, is furious that such a scandalous agreement would be made. If she acquiesces, there must be rules: no kissing . . . and, certainly, no pleasure.

Until love takes them by surprise.
But unexpected things occur with the surprisingly tender duke—especially once Lady Jayne discovers the rogue can make her dream again . . . and Ransom realizes he’s found the one woman he truly cannot live without. -Goodreads

REVIEW

I thoroughly enjoyed this romance. It held my attention because of the racy topic it is about. (Which I have to say is the first one I’ve read with this kind of story.) It was basically the pre-modern medicine form of sperm-donating. Honestly, there might have been too much sex and not enough emotion involved in the story, but I liked it all the same. I feel that the emotional scenes deserved more attention and time. This was a very addicting story with many unexpected twists! I would definitely recommend it to those who love regency romances.
