Enchanting Aurora: She needs to lose her maidenly innocence, he needs to fulfill a wicked challenge. Will this short term arrangement give them both more than they bargained for?
Usually I write traditional sweet regencies, sometimes referred to as "clean." This, quite frankly, is what I like to read, using my own imagination to create the steps following the kiss. But this time, I wrote them down.
If you don't like steamy stories, find one of my sweet books instead. Here is what motivated me. Mrs. Aurora Williams turned out to be a character I couldn't discard. She lingered in my head and my muse kept urging her on. I simply had to take on her story. It seems that the unfortunate Miss Aurora Benson went to Brussels in 1815 and met soldier Charles Williams. Her uncle managed the marriage settlements and they were set to marry when suddenly, a battle loomed. Charles and Aurora were wed immediately, but he was called away the moment the ceremony was complete. Instead of a wedding night, Aurora got a hasty kiss on the cheek, and in the same movement, Charles mounted his horse and was off, never to return. She was left a widow and a virgin.
All this was her back story. Now, as she contemplated marrying again, Aurora wished to learn what the marriage act was. How could she find out? There was only one way to complete her knowledge.
So you see why I had to follow Aurora's initiation into intimacy with a man. Luckily, Blake Kingsley turned out to be the perfect teacher. Following every step of her education turned out to be a pleasure for me. I hope you will enjoy her journey too. And his!
