“A HANDS-ON STUDY OF DESIRE.” –Booklist

WHAT DOES A WOMAN DESIRE?
A wife at fifteen, a mother at sixteen and now a widow, country-bred Frances Hart does not know how to simply be a woman. Until she accidentally interrupts a meeting of the Men and Women’s Club ... an elite London association dedicated to the study of sex ... and is challenged by sophisticated barrister James Whitcox. Her honesty—dangerous in an era when women were dependent upon fathers, husbands and sons for their very survival—tests the convictions of every man and woman in the Club, even as it catalyzes a passionate odyssey of intimate discovery. No one will escape the consequences ...

PRAISE FOR SCANDALOUS LOVERS
“This tour de force is a powerful feminist story that exposes the mores of Victorian society and strikes chords.” -RT BookReviews *Top Pick*

“There’s a lot more than explicit sex—although there is plenty of that—to this frankly erotic romance, which takes a hard look at Victorian double standards and the penalties for women who ignore them and with feminist aplomb puts everything into perspective.” -Library Journal

“The sizzling affair between Frances, a refreshingly older heroine, and James is captured in vivid detail, but Schone also gives readers some surprisingly nuanced characterization and an expertly evoked Victorian setting.” -Booklist

“Frances and James’s intimacy [is] riveting.” -All About Romance

“Complicated characters, fabulous historical detail, and spectacular sensuality.” -BellaOnline, The Voice Of Women

Cold blanketed his chest. Heat straddled his groin.

For the first time in his life, he stared up at a woman, a man naked in both body and need.

Eyelashes shielding her gaze, Frances slowly lifted up on her knees. His cock reared up between her legs, crying to give her comfort.

How many times had she lain in the darkness, holding her legs apart, while her husband stuffed his body into hers?

Warm, slippery fingers gripped James, slipping and sliding with every inch she walked backwards on her knees.

“For you, Frances,” he said tightly. “My cock is for you.”

“Is it, James?” she asked in a voice that was curiously dispassionate.

James slid his hands down over her hips—rounded flesh soft and giving—and fanned his fingers against the outside of her thighs where lace and silk and flesh met. “Yes.”

“What if I wanted to touch myself,” she touched his cock to her clitoris, her hard little glans plugging up his urethra until crystalline tears swelled up inside him, “like this?” ...
