Tempted by a Rake

(Book 23 in the Wicked Widows' League series)
A novel by

If anyone were to ask, Mr. Demetrius Valentine would claim to be satisfied. Except, he felt something was missing. When he unexpectedly inherits a cottage, Demetrius decides to travel there for Christmas. Maybe being out of London would bring the answers he sought. What he had not expected was to discover the widowed sister of a client in the cottage next door. This could make for a pleasant holiday, except Demetrius was certain the very proper countess would have no interest in seduction as he was quite certain that she did not care for him.

When Lavinia Stewart, Countess of Teviot, became a widow, she vowed to enjoy her freedom. Instead, she was living in her brother’s home, supervising his household and their younger siblings, and hardly free at all. That was the reason Lavinia suddenly decided to leave her family to spend Christmas alone. She had not counted on her neighbor being her brother’s solicitor—a confirmed bachelor and rake who preferred the company of widows. A man she suddenly saw in a different light.

Maybe all she needed was a lover for the holiday. The only question, would Mr. Valentine be willing? Might this be a Christmas that neither one of them forgets?
