Conquering the Countess ~ Em Brown
Married to the unfaithful Earl of Lowry and scorned by her in-laws for not producing an heir for the earldom, “Gertie” Farrington takes out her frustrations in the masked underground world of Madame Botreaux’s Cavern of Pleasures as its domineering mistress, Lady Athena.
Back from years of exile after a scandalous duel, Lord Barclay, a notorious rake and seducer of women, becomes instantly intrigued by the Lady Athena on a visit to the Cavern of Pleasures. He poses as a submissive with the intention of seducing the icy mistress and uncovering her true identity.
But, unbeknownst to Barclay, unmasking Lady Athena will ruin them all.
