When Maggie Brown's mother dies, she and her friend Anne are about to lose their home. Maggie's mother had been the mistress of the man who owns the house, and he wants them gone. Before contemplating their future, they take a few days' seaside vacation. At the same time, Adam St. Clair, Marquis of Belmont, and his brother James are also getting away. Adam is a very eligible bachelor and is tired of endless simpering misses and matchmaking mamas. They also go to the seaside, and meet Maggie and Anne there. Adam and Maggie pair off as do James and Anne. But Adam has obligations to find a wife of consequence, and James and Anne fall out when he learns that she has been mistress to several men. Vibrant characters and eventful plotting kept me involved from page one in this 4 1/2 star read. Cheryl Holt is a fresh new voice in historical romance that is truly delightful. Bravo!
I read this book in a day! It was the type I had a hard time putting down. A Great plot and story line.
My first book by this author ... I'll definitely read more!
The cover was more exciting than the story.
Cheryl Holt writes sensual and provocative romances. This historical romance will be a definite addition to your "keeper" pile.
Erotic tale of two lovers who never should have met, but once they do, nothing will ever be the same again.
This was a very good book. Loved it!
One of Cheryl Holt's best! I couldn't put the book down and finished it in one day. Bring out the kleenex!
