Taken by the Duke by Jess Michaels (The Pleasure Wars)

I think I got this book for free from Kindle (Amazon).  I just started reading it, and boy, was this book a pleasure to read.  It has real tragedy and story.  Jess Michaels convinced me that the characters should turn out the way they are.  Usually, in books like this, I would be rolling my eyes. I would roll my eyes so much that a headache would make it impossible to read further.  But here, I love it.  The erotic scenes are very erotic.  In fact, sexual tension and sexual frolicking are just a few things to love about this book.

I would definitely read from this author again.  Usually, I'd flipped through the obligatory sex scenes in my romance books, but the ones in this book are meant to be savored. I have always wanted a book that is romantic and erotic.  This one is a rare gem indeed to have delivered both.

From Amazon:
An eye for an eye, a sin for a sin…
The Pleasure Wars, Book 1
Amid all the lies and scandals that fuel Society’s gossip mill, one truth has stood out: House Rothcastle and House Windbury have always hated each other.

Lady Ava Windbury prays the feud will someday end, to no avail. One dreadful night, her brother accidentally causes the death of Christian Rothcastle’s sister, a tragedy that leaves both men maimed.
Consumed by grief, Christian makes a grim decision. He will kidnap Lady Ava so that her family will feel the pain of loss as keenly as he feels the loss of his own sister. But once he has Ava in his clutches, desire takes unexpected hold. Even more surprising, she willingly surrenders to his every sexual whim—after haggling over the terms of giving up her virginity.

Too late, he realizes she is using her body for peace, not war. But just as their affair of revenges turns into an affair of the heart, the past rears its ugly head to take matters into its own hands…
Warning: This book contains scenes of erotic seduction, sexual revenge and the healing power of love.
