Widow Lady Cecily loves playmates and sets her sights on Mark.
Portia grows tired of her mothers browbeating about marriage. Stumbling upon a book that stirs her hidden desires, she is greeted by Mark who agrees to give her lessons. With the temptation strong, they embark on heated moments that bring her to utter ecstasies. Sir Guy and Lady Cecily devise a plan to bring Portia and Mark’s fornication into view, not realizing the circumstances that will befall any of them. Portia and Mark soon learn that are in love but when the news is unveiled about Portia’s fornication, she is an outcast even to her family. Now it is left to Mark to save her reputation.
Show Me is a captivating read. It will delight, while at times aggravate at the way some society behave. The characters were splendid in their dialogue and the secondary characters really enhanced the story. Ms. Hart captures the true emotions of the characters in this blazing inferno and gives such a magnificent detail of the setting that this book comes highly recommended.
