Title: The Education of Ivy Leavold
Author: Sierra Simone
Series: Markham Hall – #2
Release date: February 9, 2015
I knew I was taking a risk loving a man like Julian Markham. But I thought that love was enough to cover over his darkness.
I thought wrong.
Ivy Leavold came to Markham Hall looking for a home and a new start, and instead she found the enigmatic Julian Markham–along with a love that threatened to consume them both. Now Mr. Markham is offering her a new life as his bride, as the mistress of Markham Hall, and Ivy wants nothing more than to say yes.
But Ivy knows that the closer she binds herself to Mr. Markham, the closer she binds herself to danger. And the deeper their love grows, the closer she gets to discovering the truth surrounding her cousin’s death. Once she does, the explosive secret will rip them apart… possibly forever.
This book is the continuation of the story of Julian Markham and Ivy Leavold.
Mr Markham (for some reason Mr Markham sounds way more delish and wicked) had asked Ivy to be his wife, despite his second wife–her cousin–having only died a couple of months ago. It was no secret that the marriage did not work out, and there were still talks circulating around that he killed her, but Mr Markham didn’t care. Ivy was the only one who counted, and he didn’t want to live without her.
But Ivy still needed answers in regards to her cousin’s death, but Mr Markham had made her promise not to ask him about it. Her feelings had grown stronger and more solid, but she still feared him. If she married him, would she end up getting killed herself?
Another great installment of the Markham Hall series. Half of this book is made up of sex scenes. I kid you not. And you know what? I LOVED IT. There were some serious delicious scenes right here. Especially the punishment scene… that was so hot. But be warned, the punishment scene here most people would find quite offensive.
And holy crap, what an ending. Naturally, I started the next book in the series immediately after! Really I cannot get enough of Mr Markham and Ivy!
