One woman in search of passion
Miss Cecilia Hastings has achieved what every young lady hopes for during her first London season…in duplicate! She’s caught the eye of not one but two of England’s most eligible bachelors. Both Jeremy Battersley, Earl of Henley, and Richard Huxley, Duke of Wexford, are handsome, wealthy and kind, the epitome of proper gentlemen. But Cecilia doesn’t want proper, she wants passion. So she issues a challenge to her suitors: a kiss, so that she may choose between them.
Two men in love with the same woman
Friends since childhood, and compatriots on the battlefields of Spain, Jeremy and Richard have found that falling for the same woman has set them at odds and risks destroying their friendship forever. But a surprising invitation to a late-night garden tryst soon sets them on a course that neither of them could have anticipated. And these gentlemen quickly discover that love can take many forms…

THE DEBUTANTE’S DILEMMA by Elyse Mady is an erotic M/F/M historical romance set in 1814 London. It is an M/F/M (male/female/male) story.It is a debut novel for this author. While the writing is good,the story interesting,the plot has twists and turns. I have a few issues with the story.First,a young debutante in the 1800’s,who can’t decide on a possible marriage proposal from two men.The two men are,supposedly best friends from their Eton days and military days,are older than the young lady in question.If they are such best friends wouldn’t one of them step aside,when he found out the other was seeking her hand in marriage?Second,what young lady in this time era would actually meet two gentlemen together at the same time to find out which one she wants to accept their proposal from.While deciding to partake in an sexual adventure with both men at the same time,please. Last but not least, the end result is marriage to one,have two boys,one favoring each man(assuming they are twins,of course),Then to live happy ever after,with one of the men being Godfather,yes to his own son,and the other husband/father,while at the same time continue with their sexual adventure.Please.This is probably why I don’t usually read this type of book.It is a quick read,with an interesting overall storyline,until the ending that is.Although,the end is a little vague to me,I guess I got the overall picture.If you enjoy M/F/M and this sort of thing than this is the story for you. This is my first encounter in this genre and frankly,I just don’t get it.I understand love and attraction comes to all kinds,but what about the aftermath?
