After the death of her husband, the Duke of Melbourne, and her mourning period, Clarissa will accept an invitation to a weekend house party, where also in attendance will be Belinda Strauss, the known mistress to her late husband. She intends to recover several pieces of heirloom jewelry from her family that Taylor took and gave to his mistress and then go back home.
Lord Beaton, Andrew Tarton will be one of the guests at the party and his interest peaks when he learns that Clarissa will be there. Things just got more interesting, and he will even talk to their host so that he can be seated with Clarissa. Andrew would love to find a special lady like several of the other Rakes has, that is part of the reason he agreed to this house party.
“I’m wanting to find someone who fits me as well as you found to fit all of you.”
The plot will have several of the members of the Rakes of Mayfair attending the house party hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Stanhope. Many with their spouses, but the two dubbed the Lord Bs will be single men in attendance. It doesn’t take long with Andrew to make his acquaintance to Clarissa and force a conversation, one that even turns risqué. Teamed up for the planned scavenger hunt, he will follow her and confront her on why she is in Belinda’s room, where she will have to confess. It doesn’t take long for Andrew to agree to help her and many members of the Rakes to become involved, especially after overhearing a conversation that could cause harm to Clarissa.
The story is full of secrets, plots, murder, missing documents, a couple of cat fights, snarky comments, witty comebacks, and some hanky-panky at the party. The more time that Andrew and Clarissa spend together is a game of seduction and intrigue. He is nothing like the cruel man she was married to and makes her feel special.
With a robbery attempt on the road from Bath to London, it will have Andrew, Clarissa, and the others on high alert. The threat to obtain a book that is to be in possession of the late Duke of Melbourne put Clarissa in danger. Not only that, but Belinda is making threats towards Clarissa laying claim to the Park Lane home in London. Our Clarissa isn’t a wallflower, and she doesn’t cave in or back down, she comes out swinging, literally. She will even have the ear of the Queen and not afraid to state that fact.
The story has many intimate scenes, with Andrew seducing and teaching Clarissa the pleasures between a man and woman, something she never had with Taylor. There is even a public scene at the theater. With the help of the Rakes and their women, Clarissa will learn more about various proclivities and will be introduced to a new realm of sexuality. Andrew’s art of rope play that he learned in Japan will be discussed and explored. The story does have a happy ending with some surprises. I’m sure when Andrew and Clarissa are attending the party, they didn’t know they would find so much happiness. The story is light on domestic discipline and more on mystery and the new relationship.
