As maid to some of the most wanton ladies of the ton, Margery Mallon lives within the boundaries of any sensible servant. Entanglements with gentlemen are taboo. Wild adventures are for the Gothic novels she secretly reads. Then an intriguing stranger named Mr. Ward offers her a taste of passion, and suddenly the wicked possibilities are too tempting to resist....
Henry Atticus Richard Ward is no ordinary gentleman. He's Lord Wardeaux and he is determined to unite Margery with her newfound inheritance by any means - including seduction and deception. But when the ton condemns the scandalous servant-turned-countess and an unknown danger prepares to strike, will Margery accept Henry's protection in exchange for her trust?

One of the problems I found with this story was that the narrator. The male voices didn't sound very male, and a lot of the story was at the same tone, without much variation. The story itself was a hard call since I liked the heroine, but thought she should have done more about her situation since I got the impression she really hated being the heiress, but pretty much went with the flow anyway.
I found some plot holes, or sections that were unclear and I thought that the sex scene 3/4 of the way through was just for page filler and was written in a way that did nothing for the plot.
Very good historical romance with some drama added. Satisfied with Nicola's writings and Mandy's narration.
