How steamy is it? Sizzling

Publisher's Summary

Lady Eve's got the perfect plan. Pretty, petite Evie Windham has been more indiscreet than her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Moreland, suspect. Fearing that a wedding night would reveal her past, she's running out of excuses to dodge adoring swains. Lucas Denning, the newly titled Marquis of Deene, has reason of his own for avoiding marriage. So Evie and Deene strike a deal, each agreeing to be the other's decoy. At this rate, matrimony could be avoided indefinitely...until the two are caught in a steamy kiss that no one was supposed to see. Contains mature themes.

Great hero

Interesting and well developed storyline and good character development. Not sure if I liked the heroine as much at the beginning but as the story developed and as the hero helped her get stronger as a woman, she became much more likable. Would have liked to see some improvement in the male character as well, meaning it would have been nice to leave a small flaw or two to correct as their relationship grew.

The only other comment I have to make is that I wish Grace would have dealt with the "indiscretion" differently. Instead of talking about it the entire time until the first sexual encounter and then NOT mentioning it again until the very end of the book, it would have been nice to read it right after the first coupling. I had to go back again to make sure I did not miss the discussion, but I had not. I feel it took away from the book to leave that very important discussion to then to the very last page of the book. frustrating and confusing for the reader. A lovely end to the story nevertheless.
