I really enjoyed this book. My first by this Author and I will have to now go back and read the first two and others by Julie Anne Long.
Sabrina is how I would think a typical female might act in early 1800's. She will stand by tradition and act on timid female behavior but when the time comes she has backbone and character. Rhys, well he is a typical male!!

From the back of the book:
A vicar's daughter unafraid to control her fate, Sabrina Fairleigh arrives at an exclusive country soiree with marriage in mind. How shocking--and intriguing--to discover her host is an infamous ladies' man known for his indecent (and, ah, inspiring) poetry!
They call him The Libertine, and his poetry is just as scandalous--and irresistible--as he is. But after one duel too many forces Rhys Gillray, Earl of Rawden, from lively London to his country estate, he's in desperate need of a cure for boredom. And the proper but beautiful vicar's daughter seems like the perfect test of his sensual skills.
With wit and wiliness, Rhus strips away Sabrina's defenses. But as he teaches her pleasure, the emotional stakes of their sensual duel go beyong anything Rhys has ever known. For deep in his past lies the missing clue to the crime that destroyed Sabrina's family. And all The Libertine's seductive secrets may not be enough to save their future and their hearts.

A very good writer and this is my favorite of the bunch (so far). She has passages that can transport you into the scene in an instant. It's rather disconcerting, but nifty. If you haven't tried Julie Ann Long, here is a good beginning. Enjoy!
