Anne Sommer, a spinster firmly on the shelf, does the unthinkable. She hires a man from the Blind Cupid brothel for a night of scandalous pleasure.

“Miss Sommer? I am Desmond Glover. I believe we have an engagement.” His speech possessed a deep, husky cadence and every syllable rounded and well-modulated, as if he’d been trained to speak as a gentleman. Handsome did not seem adequate enough to describe his astounding countenance. The prospect of sending him away with a flea in his ear and ten pounds in his satchel no longer appealed. The man was stunning, absolute masculine perfection. No. She would not dismiss him. This opportunity should not be tossed aside so cavalierly. Never had a man’s good looks caused her to act in a rash manner. First time for everything. She stepped back. “Please, do come in, Mr. Glover.”

After offering to take his hat and long cloak, she hung them on the hall tree. Stealing a glance, she marveled at his stunning profile. How appealing. With a quick nod, he followed her into the parlor. Inhaling, she could make out his scent which consisted of a light fragrance of bay rum and clean linen. There was no denying his thoroughly male presence as it dominated the room. “Please, take a seat. Would you care for a cup of tea?” she asked politely.

How prim, proper, and well-mannered she sounded, considering her nerves were in knots. She picked up the pot with both hands to stem the shaking. With a quick flick of his suit coat, he sat across from her, and with slow purpose removed his leather gloves. “Very well. Milk, no sugar.”

Anne added the milk then poured, and passed him the cup which rattled slightly on the saucer from her trembling grasp. As Mr. Glover took the tea, one of his long fingers brushed hers and he stroked it intimately before moving away. Rolling, raw heat traveled up her arm from the innocent touch or perhaps the deliberate contact was all part of his game of seduction.

Taking a sip of the beverage, Anne stole another glance at her visitor over the top of the cup. His hair shone as gold as the bright morning sun, the curling locks touching his broad shoulders. How scandalous, far too long for the fashion. How pleasing to discover he was clean-shaven when most men of a certain age wore facial hair or those silly sideburns. Better to show off his prominent cheekbones and well-formed jawline, she mused. The shade of his eyes was similar to the color of a snifter of warmed brandy, his gaze mesmerizing. However, she read no real warmth there, only a cool detachment. Not boredom as such, but a disturbing lack of emotion.

He crossed his long legs. “Perhaps we should discuss terms. I am here for two hours. The carriage driver will then return and if I am not out within five minutes, he will depart and return in another two hours and the cost will rise in accordance with the stipulations the abbess relayed to you. If you would be so kind as to pay in advance for the first block of time?”

Anne blushed, reached for her reticule, and slid a handful of pound notes across the table.

“Excellent. If you wish for us to sit and drink tea for this period, I can oblige you. However, I am here for more carnal pleasures. Do you wish to begin?”
