This book had me laughing out loud several times. In fact, I can't help but grin when I recall Katherine's encounter with the "highwayman". All in all, I thought this book took a different approach than most in that you started out almost disliking the heroine from page one. But as the story progresses you begin to understand her more and more. Katherine won my vote by not being your typical "damsel in distress" waiting to be rescued by her Prince Charming. And Alain...he was adorable. I mean, he was just real to me. Sure, he wasn't exactly "titled" and his "nonchalant" attitude towards life might have proven a bit frustrating to some but to me...it made him all the more believeable. All in all, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance!!!

From the back cover:

Beautiful, wealthy Katherine Deveraux doesn't think she's better than everyone else--she knows it. Her snobbish ways alienate whomever she meets--and her parents fear her marriage prospects are ruined. Determine to uncover their hard-hearted daughter's soft side, they ask Countess Christiane d'Oliveri for help...

The Countess has the perfect solution: a French ne'er-do-well known as Alain Montclair. He agrees to seduce Katherine and then break her cold heart in two--a daunting task, to be sure. But this charming rogue is most surprised to find that Katherine--behind her haughty airs and petty pretensions--is a deeply lonely woman desperate for love...

I can't really recommend this book. Lots of idiotic choices by various characters, and an unsatisfying ending. Not what I am looking for in a historical romance book.
