A Wild Night's Bride is an intriguing, erotically charged historical romance I couldn't put down! It was a pleasure to follow Phoebe and Ned's story as they were always on edge with sexual tension and the fear of being caught. The supporting characters added a creative spin to the story and they meshed with the hero and heroine perfectly to make a smoothly written erotic romance. The plot is unique and adventurous, while being sensual and romantic at the same time. The by-play between Ned and his best friend, DeVere was the perfect blend between friendship, mischief, and frustration as good friendships seem to be. They meshed delightfully (as did the hero and heroine, of course) and I feel sure we'll see more from both in the near future. I can hardly wait for more! I always enjoy a story from Victoria Vane and A Wild Night's Bride is no exception. I highly recommend it!
Phoebe couldn't get past the bit parts at the theatre where she'd been working for three years. Now the theatre was about to close and her savings weren't enough to carry her through. She resigned herself to the fact that she would need to find a protector/benefactor to advance her acting career. She set out to find one and inadvertently finds Ned, a widower who's not looking for a mistress. Misunderstandings develop between them and when alcohol and an intriguing wager are added to the mix, sensual feelings are awakened. While on edge from sexual tension and the threat of being caught, Phoebe and Ned are consumed with desire and find themselves in quite an erotic predicament, with both unsure where it will lead.
