This book was so engrossing, I read it in one day. Lily does out-raggeous things to forget the daughter stolen from her. She attempts to save her sister from marriage to someone she thinks is not suitable for her sister, only to become entangled with him herself. Great read.

I have never read a bad Lisa Kleypas book. They are all fantastic, if you like historical fiction I would highly recommend her. Lawless Lily, Derek Craven and Lord Alec Raiford are characters you won't soon forget, and the good news is you don't have to because Derek has his own story. So get them all and enjoy :)

Lily Lawson is known for her outrageous behavior, including gambling the night away at Derek Craven's establishment. When she learns that her younger sister, Penelope, is engaged to Alex Raiford, the Earl of Wolverton, she knows that her sister will never be happy. It's not a love match since Penelope is already in love with another man. So when Lily arrives at Alex's home to visit her sister and parents, she is determined to stop the wedding.

Alex knows Lily by reputation and is wary of her from the start. That doesn't stop him from being wildly attracted to her. When Lily pulls out all stops to break up his relationship with Penelope, Alex vows to get even.

This was the first book I'd read by Lisa Kleypas, but it definitely wasn't be my last. It's a wonderful story with great characters. Not only do we have an incredible heroine in Lily, and a sexy hero in Alex, but characters like Henry Raiford and Derek Craven just jump off the page. My rating: 5 Stars.
