Andrea K. Stein, author
Bookish Lord Whitcombe makes a bold request of 'The Insatiable Lady' Lord Daedalus Whitcombe, owner of the most wicked bookshop in London, has been named a scandal and a disgrace by most of good society. A title he revels in as it sells more books and annoys the very devil out of his haughty brother, the duke. His brother's efforts to close the bookshop become secondary to Lord Whitcombe's fascination with the shop's new, in-demand book, A Feast of Fantasies, by The Insatiable Lady. His quest to discover the author's identity becomes an obsession, for he has a singular request to make of the lady. Miss Perriton never expected a bookseller to look like Lord Whitcombe Miss Cordelia Perriton, the very pattern-card of a genteel young lady, has a reputation for her charitable works. Her endeavors on behalf of the fallen women of Seven Dials are lauded, though a bit daring for an unmarried woman of good family. If only society knew she's The Insatiable Lady, and those fallen women are providing the erotic tales in her sensational book. She means to use the sales to gain financial independence and to establish a home for women who wish to retire from the streets of Seven Dials. When Lord Whitcombe demands Cordelia submit her next book in person, her irritation moves to fury. The man she'd pictured as an elderly bookish type is instead a sensuously handsome lord. The connection between them is immediate and incendiary when he shocks and intrigues her with a bold request. Her response stuns him to his core. But when Cordelia's Seven Dials friends begin to disappear, the couple's erotic adventure turns deadly. Are they ready to abandon their dreams to save wheat they have or will their nightmares part them forever? Buy Tutoring the Bookseller today to open a world of desire and suspense!
