Ambrose and Alex are too stubborn to see that the feelings they are experiencing for each other is different than any that they have felt before. Alex fell in love with a neighbor and thought they would live happily ever after, but he left her and married someone else. Her heart is broken and has no interest in courting, love or marriage. Ambrose is a self proclaimed rake who has no interest in innocent young ladies and plans never to get married.
I know what you are thinking, this is just another romance novel. You would be wrong! Lauren writing is captivating and addictive. I am a great admirer of her Historical Romance novels. She gives her characters free rein and when they get the bit between their teeth hang on for a funny, erotic and splendid read.
