Lady Katherine Drummond plays by society's rules, even after the Ton turns on her. Shunned by her peers, she keeps up appearances by day but allows her true self out in the privacy of The Market. There, in the arms of one man, she comes alive. So much so, she signs a contract to be his for six months. Despite never having seen his face and knowing him only as Sir, she fears losing her heart to the man who breaks through her defenses.
Lord Raymond Tarkenton, the Earl of Heathington, despises being one of the most sought after bachelors of the Ton. He could never ask a woman of his circle to submit to his sexual needs, and a mistress would never be an option. For now, one masked woman at The Market holds his undivided attention. When he realizes that his masked lover and Lady Katherine Drummond are one and the same, he must find a way to convince her that they are bound together by more than the straps at her wrists and the contract they signed. He must reveal himself and his love to her. But will she accept him for more than a sexual escape.

LOVE REVEALED is not your mom's historical romance. It is mostly hot lava sex with a little bit of story mixed in. But then, it's a novella so there's only so much time allotted and given that, the author certainly accomplishes a major heat factor in a short amount of time. If you like historical romance and erotica combined, this is a steamy, quick read.
Lady Katherine Drummond (Kat) was burned by society after her husband died of syphilis and she is assumed to have it as well. Since she knows there is no way she contracted her husband's disease, she finds respite at The Market, where she can live out her sexual fantasies while remaining masked and disguised from the other participants.
Lord Raymond Tarkenton (Heath) has dark sexual needs that he can't ask a woman of his circle to fulfill so he also finds The Market is a place of refuge where he can be himself without fear of judgment.
The two partner several times at The Market before deciding on an exclusive sexual relationship, only to later realize they are acquaintances in real life as well.
I actually think this novella would have been great as a full-length novel. The real-life relationship could have been explored further and would have made the story that much better. But for a novella I thought the author did a good job of writing a sexy story without making it unbelievable when it came to the speed in which the characters had to develop emotional attachments and feelings for each other. My actual rating is 3.5 stars due to the amazingly hot scenes that had me completely immersed in the story.
