After eight seasons in London, Lady Jane Parker-Roth is ready to quit the dull search for a husband in favor of more exciting pursuits. So when she encounters an intruder in her host's townhouse, she's not about to let the scoundrel escape. Until she discovers she's wrestling a viscount - Edmund Smyth, the one noble she wouldn't mind meeting in the dark. And when their struggle shatters a randy statue of the god Pan, even more mischief ensues. Edmund was indeed searching for evidence of a scandal, but the shocking clues inside the nude statue are far from what he expected. The same can be said of Jane, who shows a talent for interfering in his affairs. And as his quest becomes more than a little improper, he finds the impetuous Lady has a talent for that as well.

I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Genre: Regency romance
The story was above average when I read it on Kindle. Thank goodness for ebooks! And thank goodness the same narrator isn't used for other books in the series.
The character development was good, the plot was amusing. There were a few laughs, and it wasn't angst-y.
So, like I said, go get it on Kindle.
Of course I am biased because I adore all of Sally's books, but this is definately one of my favorites. I think, of all her heroes and heroines, Jane and Motton have the most explosive chemistry. Jane is a strong character with a mind of her own. She makes me turn every page. Unlike some characters I read, I support and agree with every decision she makes, which then has me willing to follow her every move. And Motton, of course, is as fascinating a leading man as you can get. There is never a dull chapter in this book. I wish she would give them more adventures! Sally is writing some of the best Regency Romance in the business at the moment!
The narration took a little while for me to get accustomed, but eventually her voice drew me in.
