For seven long years, Lady Cassandra Monroe has waited for the man of her dreams to return from the war. Unfortunately, he happens to be engaged to her flighty cousin. What Cass wouldn’t give to take her cousin’s place! When he mistakes Cass for Patience Bunbury, a fictitious friend her cousin has invented to escape social obligations…even with her future husband, Cass thinks this is her chance.


After defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, Captain Julian Swift is not quite ready to settle down and enter into his unwanted arranged marriage—especially when the real object of his affection turns out to be a beguiling beauty he meets at a party. Patience Bunbury is witty, independent, passionate…and, unbeknownst to him, the cousin of his current fiancée. When the truth about Cass comes out—and Julian  discovers that their courtship is anything but accidental—will he surrender his heart to a woman who really is too good to be true?

But when forbidden love blooms between the unlikely friends, only disaster can come of it. That disaster leaves Marcia horribly scarred and Asterion sold into the arena as a gladiator.

Years later, Daedalus brings a broken Marcia to Britannia, and Sabrina, the healer who saved his life when he was a boy, works miracles on the scarred girl. However, not all scars are physical and those Sabrina has no ability to heal.

When Sabrina and Marcia are kidnapped by a Celtic leader bent on revenge, Asterion must depend on the dreams of a Celtic Seer to find the love of his life and help foil a revolt that threatens the fragile peace in Roman Britannia. But even if he and his friends succeed, can scars that are more than just physical ever really be healed and can those whose lives are owned by others ever truly be free to follow their hearts?

Wicked Seduction by Kristabel Reed

Wicked Seduction

Victorian Menage at the Parisian Exposition, Book 2
by Kristabel Reed

Wicked ePub

eBook ISBN: 9781310471506

Victoria Scott defied her absentee father and went to the Parisian World’s Fair alone. Daring and adventurous, she believed herself able to conquer any obstacle, after all she was a woman of the world. And then she made a rather foolish wager that she could find a lover–or two. Uncertain why she made that wager, and unsure how go about it, Victoria finds herself attracted to two handsome men.

Edmund Garrison is in Paris with his employer, Warren, Lord Sherborn, to see the engineering pavilions at the world’s fair. When beautiful Victoria stumbles across their path, he’s attracted and intrigued. When she agrees to accompany them back to Warren’s townhouse, he’s shocked–and aroused. He hadn’t expected his time in Paris to be quite so enlightening, but the education he receives is what he’s always wanted.

Warren Blackthrope, Lord Sherborn, has had many lovers, but it’s his young protege, Edmund, who attracts him the most. He wants Edmund to learn all the pleasures of being a submissive and plans to enjoy every moment of those lessons. It’s Victoria, however, who shakes Warren from his path. She’s feisty, willing, and eager for each part of their menage. But is it enough to steer the foreboding Earl from his once-chosen path?

Sex and adventure abound, and Victoria is caught up in the bliss she, Edmund, and Warren create. She wants more, craves it, but is terrified of the consequences. Scandal is around every corner; when she meets one head on will she flee? Or will she realize the power of her ménage is stronger than merely sex?

This 56,000 word story is an MMF ménage where all characters are romantically and sexually involved in a relationship.
