Reviewed: A Scandalous Affair by Karen Erickson...

A Scandalous Affair
Third in the Merry Widows series
From the moment Daphne, Lady Pomeroy, meets the mysterious Marquess of Hartwell at a masquerade ball, she’s determined to seduce him. The handsome, charming man cannot possibly be the cold, calculating lord who Society calls “Black Hart.” Risking everything, the lonely widow invites the elusive Hartwell to her dinner party . . . for two.
Hartwell’s arrogant reputation is built on a lie. For he has a shameful secret that keeps him in the shadows: a stutter—his downfall since childhood. He’d rather keep his mouth shut than look the fool. But he’s shocked to discover that in Daphne’s company—and in her bed—his stutter vanishes.
After one wanton evening together, Daphne is hurt when the lord lives up to his Black Hart name. Yet his reasons for leaving surprise even him. Now he must confess everything or risk losing Daphne forever…
I loved this book!!! It had everything that I look for in a historical romance book all wrapped up in a short story(about 68 pages~Kindle). So entertaining!!! 
This is actually the first book that I have read from Karen Erickson and I didn't realize that it was the third book in The Merry Widows series. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.
I have a soft spot for an imperfect hero and a heroine who can see past the imperfections. Camden *sigh*.  I love Camden and Daphne together. I love how Daphne went after what she wanted despite the rumors about Camden. I love how they got together, had a misunderstanding, then got back together. So good!! Karen can write some HOT sex scenes. ;) Just a fun, sexy, short read with lovable characters that you want to see get their HEA. Definitely a reread. 5 out of 5 rating.
