'The Marquis's New Clothes' by Lila DiPasqua is book seven in the "Fiery Tales" series. This is the story of Aimee de Miran and Adam de Vey, Marquis de Nattes. This is easily a standalone book so don't worry if like me you are jumping in and out of the series.
Aimee is a widower who husband cheated on her just as other town's husband did their wives. Aimee's husband was actually killed in a duel over his favorite mistress. Adam was her husband's best friend so she has known him and that he was just like her husband. So when she goes to court to help her cousin, Aimee finds that she has to pretend to be interested in Adam to get back what her cousin has lost. Adam has always been attracted to Aimee and feels this is his time to make a move since she is at court and also seems to be open to a relationship.
Ms. DiPasqua books are always a fun, hot, easy read! Loved it.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
