A Duke’s Temptation by Jillian Hunter

Everyone deserves at least one wicked evening in London.

Do not explore this house late at night if you know what is good for you.

I don’t know what either of us would do if some lady skeleton stuck her head through the stones and said, ‘Stop trying to resurrect me. I’ve earned my eternal repose.’ I supposed I might faint like a maiden myself.
