Georgia period - London. Interesting book. Harriet (widow) is restless and chooses to spend time at a notorious Lord's home along with women and men of "loose morals". Although to not damage her reputation, she dresses as a man. The connection between the two (hero / heroine) is a bit odd at first due to the fact that he doesn't know she is a woman, but gets better. By the end of the book, the relationship has developed. I think it's #3? of her Desperate Duchess series. Recommended, but I'm still waiting for Viller's story.

This was my introduction to author Eloisa James, and I don't know what took me so long! I really enjoyed it. Even though it's the 3rd in the Desperate Duchesses series, and usually I prefer to read in order, I lucked into this book and read it first - and I'm glad I did. I found it witty and amusing, and a totally fresh way of dealing with a heroine who dresses in men's clothing - not because she's a hoyden, but to protect her reputation. It was a 5-star read for me, and I'll be looking for the rest of the series!

Very engaging story. It was great entertainment watching poor Jem fight his attraction to "Harry" while Harriet just blossoms ... as a man!
Typical Eloisa James fare - fractious fun with plenty of sizzle.
