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!!
Enjoy

From the back of the book:

WANTON!

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!

WICKED!

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.

WONDROUS!

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!

This is a great end to an interesting series. As always, I encourage you to have every book in the series in your posession before you start the first book. I only tell you this because you will grow impatient for the next book;and reading them in order is important.

A little better than Ways to Be Wicked, but not much. Julie Anne Long's style of having almost no interaction between the hero and heroine in the first 150 pages is unbearable. Pages upon pages of absolutely. Nothing. Happening. The story doesn't really progress and the hero and heroine aren't getting to know each other, because they are never in the same room. This doesn't build up to love, it just causes the reader aggravation.

A particular nitpick in this story, the hero, Earl of Rawden, is a notorious poet who writes under the nom de plume "The Libertine". Since so much is made of his licentious poetry, and his ability to seduce women with his words, it was a shame that we saw only a single sentence of his poetry. It felt like a cheat to keep referring to his steamy words and never read a one of them.

The finale to the Holt Sisters Trilogy is adequate. There is resolution to most of the overarching mysteries of their father's murder and mother's subsequent decampment. The three sisters get their HEA and most everything is wrapped up in a nice bow. Just wish it was more fun getting there.
