Anna Well's Satin Sheet Review of the Unraveling of Lady Fury

Publisher:  Etopia Press
Genre: Historical Romance
Length: 262 pages

Rule One: There will be no kissing. Rule two: There will be no touching…

Widowed Lady Fury Shelton hasn’t lost everything—yet. As long as she produces the heir to the Beaumont dukedom, she just might be able to keep her position, and her secrets. When the callously irresistible Captain James “Flint” Blackmoore sails back into her life, Lady Fury panics. She must find a way to protect herself—and her future—from the man she’d rather see rotting in hell than sleeping in her bed. If she must bed him to keep her secrets, so be it. But she doesn't have to like it. A set of firm rules for the bedroom will ensure that nothing goes awry. Because above all else, she must stop herself from wanting the one thing that Flint can never give her. His heart.

Ex-privateer Flint Blackmoore has never been good at following the rules. Now, once again embroiled in a situation with the aptly named Lady Fury, he has no idea why he doesn't simply do the wise thing and walk away. He knows he’s playing with fire, and that getting involved with her again is more dangerous than anything on the high seas. But he can’t understand why she’s so determined to hate him. He isn't sure if the secret she keeps will make things harder—or easier—for him, but as the battle in the bedroom heats up, he knows at least one thing. Those silly rules of hers will have to go…

Anna’s Review

Lady Fury has a dilemma; her husband has died before he produced an heir.  She has to get pregnant immediately so she can convince everyone she is carrying her dead husband’s child.  If she doesn't she’ll be penniless, but Fury takes this in stride quickly and finds a number of suitable if not likable candidates to father her child.

However her plans are disrupted when her former lover, Flint Blackmoore, walks back into her life and quickly signs up for the position of stud.  Fury understandably can’t forgive him for previously abandoning her so she is determined to remain aloof, and really who can blame her?

Historical romances are my first love and Lady Fury is a delightful heroine.   She’s not easily seduced the second time around really makes Flint work hard to win her back.  Fury and Flint are great characters who will make you laugh as they attempt to keep their distance while they are trying to conceive a child.  As the story unfolds you’ll learn why Fury is so determined to secure her future, but shhh….no spoilers.
