Lady Yvette Barlow is not your typical demure young woman attending events in this year's Season. She's been out in society for a number of years, but she's tall and out spoken, not exactly what young gentlemen are looking for in a wife. She's had a few offers of marriage and she's spurned them all. No man has intrigued her, that is, until American artist Jeremy Keane shows up at a friend's wedding. His reputation as a rake and a frequent visitor to London's brothels makes him an unsuitable match, but there's something about him that draws Yvette in. Perhaps, he's the perfect man to help her with a problem after all.
I loved that Yvette wasn't a simpering and demure young woman just looking to land a husband. The lively banter between Yvette and Jeremy is entertaining and the more time they spend together, the more they are attracted to one another. Be warned that there are graphic sex scenes in the book, but no one can deny the heat these two generate. The author does a great job unveiling the mystery that Yvette is trying to solve. I especially liked how Yvette's brother, Edwin, was more than the cookie-cutter older brother looking out for his sister. Fans of regency romances will absolutely love this book. Highly recommended.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
