George Frobisher, the future Earl of Chadleigh, was thunderstruck when, at the age of seventeen, he accidentally glimpsed Miss Olivia Henshaw emerging naked from her bath the day of his sister’s wedding. That vision of a Venus, his Venus, would fuel his fantasies for years to come.
Ten years after the wedding, Olivia Henshaw had resigned herself to a spinsterhood caring for her ailing uncle in a cold and dark castle in the Scottish highlands. She had no expectations of anything but a cozy visit with her best friend Felicia Leyton when she accepted her invitation to an intimate house party in the countryside.
No one at the Leyton’s Yorkshire abbey could have guessed what would transpire when fantasy finally meets reality.
