In Lord Of Pleasure, the reader finds a lively romp through Regency England.

Unwilling to go meekly along with her parents decision for her life, Camellia finds herself at a notorious masked ball dressed to kill. Ready for some fun in her life, she gets more than she expected.

However, fate places a delectable masked young woman in his path. Staying respectable will be very hard to do. Will fate allow Wainwright and Camellia to forge a relationship that could destroy all she holds dear. Is a love match possible between the debaucher and the good girl? My reviews of romance novel, Lord of Pleasure, follows.
