Jared Warren, Duke of Tellbourne, is
tired of the antics of his wife. If she won’t listen to
him, he’s determined to show her the error of her ways.
After he drags her away from a scandalous play, he comes up
with a form of punishment they both enjoy.
Patricia is annoyed by her husband’s
autocratic decisions, but she can’t find fault with his
particular brand of punishment. To her surprise, she enjoys
their newly passionate lovemaking much more than the
bloodless couplings they shared before. Can Patricia stay
out of trouble and in her husband’s good graces?
The Letter is a hotter
than usual but otherwise fairly standard Regency tale.
There’s the stubborn, headstrong wife, Patricia, and the
bossy husband who’s concerned with propriety, Jared. There
are also other stock characters, such as a jealous former
flame of Jared’s. All of these elements come together to
form a story that, while predictable in some ways, is
entertaining. The Letter has a bit of
something for everyone, from ballroom intrigue, to action,
to hot sex scenes. If you like Regencies with more spice
than usual, you’ll probably enjoy The Letter.
