Sometimes our wildest dreams come true.
In the tumultuous summer of 1808, Spain and England are close to war and four young lovers are close to ecstasy. To carve out an independent life with the woman she loves, Anna knows she must leave her quiet Spanish convent to become a courtesan. To gain experience, she sets her sights on . . . Sebastian, whose powerful, aristocratic confidence suits Anna’s mercenary goals. But his arrogance masks a craving for submission that Anna instinctively satisfies. Sebastian soon begs for her hand in marriage, even if it means sharing her with . . . Pia, who trusts Anna completely—with her body and her future—until she learns of Anna’s hasty marriage. Pia questions their commitment to each other as they leave for London to meet . . . Farleigh, the seemingly feckless duke who thinks he’s over Sebastian, the potent Spanish soldier he bedded two years ago. What begins as a series of erotic escapades soon evolves into a deep, unbreakable bond. Two men and two women who yearn to explore are about to make their wildest dreams come true.
“Playful, passionate, polyamorous—with this imaginative erotic Regency, Mulry sweeps us back to the future of romance.” -Pam Rosenthal, RITA Award Winning author of The Edge of Impropriety
“In this lighthearted historical romance that quickly diverges from the straight and narrow, Mulry (A Royal Pain) achieves an atmosphere of anticipation on every page.” –Publishers Weekly
“Bound to be a Groom is a delightfully dirty historical romance that illustrates perfectly that love has room for more than two people. The piece de resistance of this story is a four-way love scene of epic proportions under a lawn tent after a proper British picnic – a scene that I will likely not ever forget. This one is a must read!” –Romance Novel News
“In Bound to be a Groom, Mulry has created a foursome that is truly unique. It allows all four to be truly equal in a way that is completely believable, and by the end I really couldn’t imagine them any other way.” -3 Chicks After Dark
“Let me state this loud and clear: This is not your mama’s bodice ripper. Throw all those chunky, dog-eared, split-spine romances out of the window. You know the ones… you know all the good scenes by heart. Bound to Be a Groom has all you need. All you never knew you wanted. And more.” -Literati Book Reviews
