A Notorious Ruin

He kept the distance between them close. He knew damn well when he was being played, but whatever she’d heard about him, she seemed to have guessed which parts were true, and that aroused him, that she might know that about him. “If I leave marks on this pretty skin of yours, what then?”
She paled, but that was all. “Obviously, you ought not leave them where anyone but my maid will see. She is the very soul of discretion, I promise you.”
“Right now?”
“Only if you do as you like right now. This very moment.” She leaned closer. “Whatever you like.”

She hides her heart behind a thick skin. He’s the only one who sees right through it.

Lucy Sinclair Wilcott is a widow and the subject of public scorn. She knows her first marriage ruined her, and she couldn’t remarry if she wanted to. A façade of bland kindness is the only thing that keeps her sane in the face of thinly-veiled tabloid insults. She wants nothing more than to save enough money to move to a cottage of her own to keep her sister safe from their father’s poor judgment.

The Marquess of Thrale, a visitor to the Sinclair home, picks up on Lucy’s emptiness, but he soon realizes it’s an act. Everything he believes about the beautiful widow is wrong. She’s a brilliant, amusing, and arousing woman of deep honor.

As Lucy’s long-absent feelings of desire surge back, Lord Thrale must convince her that she’s everything he wants in a lover, for the rest of his life.

A Notorious Ruin is the second book in the Sinclair Sisters saga, a series of Regency romance novels. If you like unpredictable plots, refreshing dynamics, and sensual attraction, then you’ll love Carolyn Jewel’s tale of passion.
