A novel by

 
 
Meet the Merry Widows, a secret society of respectable ladies ... with some scandalous ideas ...

Assured of both money and position, none of the five friends who form the Merry Widows need ever marry again. But they have no intention of forsaking physical passion for the rest of their lives. So they make a daring pact--each will consider taking a lover for the pure pleasure of it.

Marianne Nesbitt adored her late husband David, but the racy reminiscences of the Merry Widows make her wonder if she missed something special. Might she find it now through a love affair? Uncertain how to go about it, she asks Adam Cazenove, an old friend and notorious rake, to tutor her in the arts of seduction.

The brazen request turns Adam's world upside down. He never imagined his best friend's very proper and exceedingly attractive widow would seek out a lover. If not for his recent betrothal, he would jump at the chance to warm her bed. Since he cannot bear the thought of another man doing so, he foils her every attempt at seduction. Until one night of unintended passion changes everything…
