One night of fierce passion and unbound pleasure leaves two strangers craving much more in Lavinia Kent’s sumptuous novel of sensual discovery.

The time has come for the widow Louisa, Lady Brookingston, to move on, but she refuses to remarry at the cost of shaming her late husband’s memory. Their six years together were wedded bliss—even if a war injury prevented him from fulfilling his marital duties. Only one woman can help Louisa: Madame Rouge, the discreet proprietress of a club where London’s elite explore their wildest fantasies.

Geoffrey, the Marquess of Swanston, has no intention of agreeing to deflower an anonymous virgin. But when Madame Rouge tempts him with the absolute power he’ll have over a woman who knows nothing of carnal delights, he’s intrigued. Control is the one thing he cannot resist—and control is what he loses during his night with the blindfolded beauty. He longs to take her further, to leave his mark upon her perfect behind, but the mystery woman refuses to see him again. Instead Geoffrey reluctantly agrees to take a wife, the widow of his dear friend, Lord Brookingston—fating them both to a wicked surprise.

Mastering the Marquess is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

This is the first historical romance with BDSM that I've read, and I loved it!  

One of my favorite scenes is the "wedding night" that Madame Rouge arranges for Louisa to and Geoffrey to solve her problem, but both Louisa and Geoffrey wish to remain anonymous.  He wears a mask that completely covers his face and blurs his vision, while she is able to see him at first and explore.  Roles are then reversed and Louisa in blindfolded while he removes his mask and proceeds to give her a night she will never forget.  

The book is well written, the plot is entertaining and the sex scenes are erotic and at times tender.  Can't wait to read the next book which I hope is about Geoffrey's sister Blythe.
