A Wild Night’s Bride, a sexy, rollicking Georgian romp!
Brimming with humor and devilishly engaging characters, Victoria Vane’s A Wild Night’s Bride is a fast-paced historical romance that is delightfully steamy. Sir Edward “Ned” Chambers, Viscount Ludovic DeVere, and Pheobe Scott embark on a lusty wager that could get them beheaded if they are caught frolicking in the King of England’s bed.
A Wild Night’s Bride is a beautifully written novella with well-developed and entertaining characters. Phoebe Scott is an impoverished and struggling actress whose discovery she needs a benefactor to further her acting career leads her to the irrepressibly charming Viscount Ludovic DeVere and his grieving widower friend Sir Edward “Ned” Chambers. DeVere is a dissolute rake whose boredom leads him to agree to the madcap and completely insane bet to take a woman of pleasure in the King’s bed. But the plan goes awry when Ned cannot resist his attraction to the lovely Phoebe. Will the trio escape the King’s palace undetected?
Victoria Vane brings her readers another well-researched and amusing love story set in the Georgian period. The plot is unique and well-executed and the dialogue is witty and authentic. The sex scenes are erotic and sinfully sexy. Ms. Vane’s character development is flawless as she brings Phoebe, Ned and DeVere brilliantly to life.
