I love Regency romances, but I did not like this one; the characters were weak & cconstantly made bad decisions. And one of the baddest characters actually got away with her very - very! - evil machinations! The hero & heroine didn't come to their senses until the very last pages. And personally, I need an epilogue to know that they lived "happily ever after", because I wasn't convinced they were.
It's fluffy, romantic smut. When I'm in the mood for fluffy, romantic smut this is the author I reach for.
very good book..one one of those you read in a day.
Ellen Drake experinced scandal ten years ago. She's now working as a paid companion. Ellen's repuation has to be spotless now.
She catched her employer's betrothed in a tryst. Ellen finds her self intreged. Ellen intends to prevent Alex Marshel from being with other women before his wedding day. Alex turnes the tables. He invites Ellen to be his paramour.
Alex intends to be faithful once he's married. Giving the prim Miss Drake a tast of the excitment she clearly craves will be a delightful diversion, nothing more. But their secret dalliance unleashes someone's vengeance, someone whose own erotic pursuits are twised with madness. And the scandle that destroyed Ellen's family is about to come calling once again...
Very good book--interesting plot and moves well. Lots of steamy scenes!
This is one of the few books I have ever read where I struggled for 3/4 of the book to find one character I liked. Many times I was tempted to stop reading it, but my stubborn nature prevailed, and I finished it. I did find a way to like the two leads by the end, but overall, I was glad I had gotten my copy for $1 at a used book sale. This is the first book I have read by Cheryl Holt, and it gives me no reason to try another of hers.
Erotic romance about an innocent woman whose passion leads to temptation.
Not your average Regency, but a good read. Too many secondary players with way too much page time. It doesn't end with your "typical" Happy-
Ever-After, which gives the characters more depth.
Great story...it sizzles!
I love this author another great book
Not a bad read, but not the best by Ms. Holt.
As another reviewer said, when you are in the mood for this type of book, you cannot do much better that this one.
Holt is always a good sexy read.
a very interesting book starts and ends with a game of solitaire and interesting twists in between a bit slow but you get there in the end worth the read
I love all of Cheryl Holt's books and this one do not disappoint. If you like a good sexy read, this book is for you.
Another hot book by Ms. Holt. I love the banter between Alex Marshall, Lord Stanton and Ellen Drake. She's determined to keep him celibate by sneaking into the rooms where he's planned a meeting for a tryst. He thinks that she's a bluestocking but finds out differently, to his happy surprise.
