One Wicked Winter by Emma V Leech
One Wicked Winter
ROGUES & GENTLEMEN: BOOK SIX
Edward Greyston, Marquess of Winterbourne, is a haunted and violent man.
Blackmailed by his sister into giving a Christmas house party to celebrate her recent marriage, Edward is quite certain that the next few days will be an utter nightmare.
Nightmares, however, are something Edward is all too familiar with. After the bloody battle of Waterloo, he has returned from the war a changed man, full of rage and guilt.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This story had it all, clever writing, witty characters, passion and intrigue.” ~ Amazon customer review
The party is as he feared, but he hadn’t banked on one of his house guests, the bluestocking Belinda ‘Belle’ Holbrook, to try and trap the unsuspecting, and quite gullible, Lord Nibley into marriage. Anticipating the worst, he tried to warn him… only to get caught by Belinda himself.
Furious, but honour bound.
Edward finds himself furious, but honour bound to do the right thing and not long after finds himself married to a woman whom he doesn't trust and knows nothing about.
More to the point, he has no intention of trying to find out more. Belle, however, is made of sterner stuff and refuses to be afraid of the angry man she married.
Somehow, she determines to melt icy Lord Winterbourne's frozen heart, and she's prepared to be wicked to do it.

**** Warning: This book contains haughtiness of the highest degree, a smattering of mild swearing and after some time and effort, a small amount of graphic and descriptive sex scenes. We are at pains to point out, however, that this book - or series – is in no way verging on erotica ****
