Finally some new and interesting love scenes! Not the 'standard' love scenes of most romance books. This was a very fun read.

The book was very graphic. I love a good love scene but these were over the top.

Jeffries is one of my go-to authors. This story did not do it for me. I know she was playacting to a degree but the heroine came across as too juvenile too often. A real fear of the hero's, worked believable into the plot, could not save it for me. The first book of hers in years that I'm not holding onto.

Lady Amelia Plume has many admirers, its too bad they're all fortune hunters and fops who can't provide the exotic adventure she seeks. But the vallrooms of Mayfair have become much more appealing since the arrival of Major Lucas Winter, an American with a dark past and a dangerous air. Lucas is brash, arrogant - and scandalously tempting. Every thrilling kiss sparks hotter desire, yet Amelia suspects that Lucas has a hidden motive in wooing her. And she intends to discover it, by any means neccessary.

Wonderful book. My first by this author, first in The School of Heiresses Series. It was great, lots of laughter and fun. Regency England hasn't been this fun for many many years.

This is one of my favorite romances and definitely the most underrated of Sabrina Jeffries' books. From the description you would expect Amelia to be silly and spoiled but in reality she's a grounded and decent person who is curious but has some common sense all the same. The sexual tension is wonderful and sharp and the romance is sweet. A perfect choice for a lighter, funny romance read.

American Major Lucas Winter is in London posing as a diplomat. He is actually in England searching for Theodore Frier who stole money from the American Government. Lucas believes he has tracked down Theodore's wife, Dorothy, to a home in London. Now he must romance Lady Amelia Plume in order to get closer to her stepmother Dorothy. Amelia is bored with all of the balls and the fortune hunters who want to marry her. She stumbles upon Lucas' notes about this search for her stepmother. Pretending to be a brainless heiress, Amelia agrees to let Lucas court her in order to find out why he is looking for Dorothy.

This is a strong start to Sabrina Jeffries School for Heiresses series. The characters are well drawn and the chemistry between Amelia and Lucas is tangible. Lucas dislikes Americans after his stint as a prisoner of war. He wants to find Theodore Frier and won't let Amelia stand in his way. Amelia is seeking adventure and Lucas promises to show her many kinds of adventure.

There are little notes at the beginning of each chapter from the schoolmistress Charlotte Harris and her late husband's cousin Michael. They have been corresponding for years but have never actually met. I look forward to seeing more of Charlotte and Michael has her School for Heiresses graduates each get their own story. My rating: 5 Stars.
