Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Christina Dodd brings you romance, intrigue, and passion in her most boldly sexual story yet! A Well Pleasured Lady is not for the timid...

Prim, plain, desperately virtuous Lady Mary Fairchild stares at the seductive gentleman and wonders - does he remember the night they met? Surely not. In the ten years since, she left behind her youthful impetuousness and transformed herself into a housekeeper - disguising her beauty beneath a servant's dour clothing. 

But Sebastian Durant, Viscount Whitfield, recognizes Mary as a Fairchild, one of his family's bitter enemies. When he demands her help recovering a stolen diary, she dares not refuse him. When he proposes they masquerade as a betrothed couple, loyalty forces her to agree. And when the restraint between them shatters and pleasure became an obsession, Mary has to trust a powerful man who could send her to the gallows...or love her through eternity.

Critic Reviews

"The vividly depicted, bawdy Georgian setting is the perfect backdrop for this highly sensual story of intrigue." (Library Journal)

Sexual Predator

I don't usually write bad reviews but, I couldn't finish this book. I was getting so uncomfortable and angry at the male lead that I couldn't keep going. I understand that in those times things progressed differently but I guess I'm too sensitive for this. The man is basically about to rape the young woman! I stopped there. I'd had enough...

Great Story with Good Narration

This book has a strong heroine who began as a naive young lady named Guinevere but was forced to mature and take on a new persona as Mary. Unlike many heroines she becomes a member of the serving class. Years later her loyalty to her employer/friend forces her to accept a mission that takes her where she least wants to go (back to her relative's home) and she discovers she is an heiress. The hero of the story (Sebastian) is cunning/manipulative so not as likable but considering how her relatives destroyed his, it later makes his actions seem more understandable. I feel like the narration could have been better. In particular I would've liked more of a pause between swapping to a new scenes since it sometimes got confusing. Overall, I found the book both somewhat humorous (Sebastian's godmother + uncles) and enjoyed listening.
