She had no idea what passion was,
Until she saw them...
Lady Alain needs a husband, and Lord Quintin Wyntor will do just fine. She wants to offer him a mutual agreement of respect and independence—As long as he never visits her bed to claim his marital rights. She follows him to do just that, but ends up with so much more. Seeing him with a man, with Calder, changes everything she knows. For better, and for worse.
Passion yet unknown to her is stirred. Desire never before experienced is ignited.
Even so—she never wants to touch or be touched.
Quinn doesn’t understand what she’s telling him, but when his heart is shattered because his lover walks away, he decides to explore his feelings for Celeste to ease his broken heart.
In one unchecked moment of passion a mutual need spins out of control and changes both of their lives forever. A future for Quinn with Calder may now be impossible.
Will Celeste give in to what Quinn wants for her or will she stand her ground, gain her happiness, and help Quinn find another way?
This book is the story of Celeste and has her happily for now.
It’s also the beginning of Calder and Quinn’s story which is continued in THE SPARE AND THE HEIR.
This book is an autochorissexual romance (on the asexual spectrum) and also contains important pieces of a gay romance. Both are explicit.
Warning: this book has a cliffhanger ending for Calder and Quinn, but is very much part of their story.
Warning: this is not a kissing book, but it is a dirty book
Warning: You’re going to fall in love, and it’s going to hurt.

I'm toying with giving this book 5 stars and maybe I will. There were parts that confused me, infuriated me, and sometimes just made me go huh? But don't all books do this?
I hate stupid misunderstandings all because characters won't communicate. NEVER in my life has this happened to me or anyone I know, which why it always makes me angry when it happens in books. Communication people! Also I hate when characters can't explain themselves. They act like they can't say the word. Celeste did this a lot. JUST SAY EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE THINKING. Use those words if you can't find any other.
I'm completely in love with Quinn. Calder brings all the vulnerable angst swoon. Celeste is the gentle strength.
I did enjoy reading a story about a character on the ace spectrum. YES! All aces rejoice. It was done fairly impressive by a non-asexy. And it was a heteromantic character at that, which is extremely rare in the fiction world.
I love this book. Although I have all of the series on my kindle and on my TBR list, this was the first book I've read by the author and I'm impressed by the author's writing style and ability to suck me into the story so quickly and thoroughly. I also appreciate the respectful representation of the asexual community.
