Lady Eustacia Lumley is the only child of the Earl of Wentworth. It is her duty to marry well and ensure the succession.

Margaret Durrell is the fourth daughter of a gently born, but near penniless vicar. She has no option but to marry a man who can provide for her and possibly for some of her sisters as well.

Best friends since their days at Miss Marcomb's Academy for Young Ladies, both young women are very interested in Sappho's poetry and ideas. One evening while visiting the Wentworth estate, Margaret has a headache and Eustacia offers to massage her scalp. This act of kindness leads them into an encounter they both find very enjoyable.

The two young women fall deeply in love, but is there any hope for them? Or will they both have to conform to the rigid rules of Regency society?

Brandi's Review:

I love historical romances.  I love erotic historical romances best. While I like the idea of this book, I really really wish it would have been longer and we could have seen more detail about the characters. We only received a taste of who Eustacia and Margaret really were. 

I have to say the fathers of our heroines intrigued me the most, and I would have liked getting to know a father who understands you can't chose the ones you love, because to me, a man like that during the Regency era deserved a little back story.  This was a very sweet love story, with hot scenes. It really did all come together for me.
