Good, quick read. Not as "HOT" as the cover proclaims or event the book attempts to make it seem it will be. But I did enjoy the read and look forward to the next two books.

I thought this one was not up to her usual standards. Same formula, but the characters were weak. But, it's still Anne Stuart, and any of her books are better than many authors ever will be. It was enjoyable.

Just okay for me, a typical romance story set in the 1700's when debauchery seemed to be a normal way to live--yuk!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The hero was quite dark and the heroine too resisting, but it all came together in the end. Unfortunately, the ending came very quick and then the book ended. I will definitely read the other two books in this series.

Francis, Viscount Rohan, is known in Paris for a life of excess and debauchery. He is hosting a party for his hedonistic friends when Elinor Harriman shows up looking for her mother who has ran away with the few coins her family has left. Bored with the party, Rohan is immediately intrigued by her and decides to find out more about Elinor. He finds that she lives in poverty with a younger sister and an abusive mother. Soon he is pursuing Elinor at all costs.

This is the first book in Anne Stuart's House of Rohan series and I found it interesting. I've always enjoyed Stuart's writing style and the pacing of her stories. Francis is a dark hero who is bored with his life. Elinor is very strong woman who will do anything to protective her sister, Lydia. I thought the romance in his book was just OK. I had a hard time believing Elinor would do a 180 degree turnaround toward the hero.

I did enjoy the secondary story about Rohan's friend, Charles and Elinor's sister, Lydia. I wish we would have seen more of them in this book. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

I throughly enjoyed this dark seedy romance, had all the things that "nobody" talks about in the storyline which was a refreshing change of pace. Showed the darker side of the Englishman & womans tastes. A really great read.
