Miss Y emailed me about this book, which she can’t get out of her head.
I’ve been thinking almost incessantly about a book I read about two years
ago. It was about this guy, whose name might be Alec? Alex? Something. And
also he was a Duke. Of Something.
Anyway, he goes to visit a friend, who is a bit older than him, hereafter
known as Older Friend. And there he meets some girl. The Heroine. Whose name
I can’t remember. Well she is supposed to be Older Friend’s mistress or
something but it turns out they’re only doing it as a pretense and she’s
not really his mistress at all but more a friendly companion who helps the
Older Friend maintain an appearance of sexual competency. And the whole time
Mr Duke is lusting after the girl and she’s secretly pining after him and
so on and so forth.
And then it turns out she’s a virgin, because of course she is.
Also, she might have been living in a tower.
Anyway. I borrowed it from a friend and neither of us can remember what this
book was called so I’m calling on the Powers of the Bitches to see if it
rings any bells.
OMG! Virgin in a tower! Someone must remember this one—anyone recall the name of this book?
