Lady Seductress's Ball by Eliza Knight

As the wife of the elderly Earl of March, Olivia Covington has never known the intimacies of the bedroom. Though her curiosity is piqued by the shocking whispers of society ladies, she is too wary of causing scandal to indulge in an affair. But Tristan Knightley, Earl of Newcastle, tempts her to throw off propriety.

Tristan wants Olivia for his own, and has sworn off all others until he can rid himself of the obsession. He is sure once he has a taste, he will tire of her, and can return to his rakish existence. Unable to wait to have her in his bed, he invites her for a tryst at Lady Seductress's Ball...

Reviewer: Fashionta
The blurb for the book caught my eye and it didn't disappoint me. Everyone has secret fantasies, and the author created characters who have secret fantasies in an erotic regency England setting which I fell in love with. Too many regency period books are just historical romances and while this one has the usual elements of this genre, the author took it to the next level by introducing the Ball.

I have to give 3.5 stars. This could have been the start to a series and I wish the author would have taken that chance since she introduced minor characters who had the same ideals that the main characters possessed when it comes to sex. It would be interesting also to see the reaction of the ton to the main characters actions.
