This is one of the most sensual, engrossing romances I had read in a long while. A friend casually gave me this book a few years ago and I've been reading everything Kat Martin publishes ever since. Kat mixes historical information with sensual romances that keep you turning the pages. This one is great!

Thought that the main character, Kathryn, pushed Lucien's love a little too far with her lies and omissions. Would like to see a little more of the strong man, instead of one who is so easily persuaded by the sexual act.

The story of Lucien and Kathryn was full of adventure and passion. Kathryn Grayson is a smart, intelligent woman born in the wrong century. She wants desperately to work as a doctor, but it only gets her into trouble. So much trouble, in fact, she winds up in an insane asylum. Her greedy and villainous uncle is behind her horrid treatment, and she becomes desperate to save herself. Lucien becomes her saving grace more than once, and their relationship is full of ups and downs. Lucien is downright yummy. He's dark and passionate, and the image Kat Martin paints of him on several occasions was just wonderful. He's as aristocratic as they come, but he has a soft side to him as well. This makes him endearing and likeable.

From the back cover

She could take his name.
Lady Kathryn Grayson is a gently bred noblewoman with a privileged future ahead of heruntil her greedy uncle decides to steal her fortune by committing her to an insane asylum. Her only escape is to stow away in a carriage of Lucian Montaine, Marquess of Litchfield, who hears her story with disbelief and suspicion. Yet Kathryns instincts tell her Lord Litchfield is a man of honor-and her only salvation. Desperate to save herself, she attempts to seduce him and forces him into marriage.

But she couldnt take his heart.
The moment Lucien encounters the ragged, hungry waif with the dignity of a queen, he fights against wanting her. Though captivated by her intellect, strong will, and beauty, he will never love the woman who has deceived him.

Or so he thought
Though their battle of wills grows stronger every day, desire threatens to overpower his fury. Can this maddening woman who is now his bride melt his heart or steel? Or will her silken touch only strengthen his vow never to fall prey to the dangers of love?

Vicious uncle plots to seize the fortune of the lovely Kathryn by committing her to an insane asylum. She, however, has other plans. Strong characters with some sizzle.
