The Study of Seduction by Sabrina Jeffries
Edwin seems to always get himself in a pickle where Clarissa is concerned, "God. He’d never been good at deciphering women. He weighed his words. “I meant that men who don’t take no for an answer generally have a reason for their . . . obsession, if you will.” He thought of his mother. No, that wasn’t the same at all. “I’m merely trying to get at what the reason might be.” When she continued to stare balefully at him, he thought to add, “Beyond your beauty and wit, that is.” I'm liking that Edwin will have his hands full with his woman, “I won’t be gambling,” he told Clarissa. “And it’s a meeting with a man. I can see you’re going to be quite the jealous wife.” Where Clarissa is concerned Edwin's thoughts always tend to be on the naughty side, "how he hoped that her idea of fun and his were the same. But somehow he doubted it. “What did you have in mind? Swimming?” Naked, preferably. “Going for a drive?” To somewhere they could be naked. “Riding?” Please let it be riding. But not on a horse. And definitely naked." I enjoyed this book immensely. Edwin and Clarissa were perfect for each other.
