Publisher's Summary

If you enjoy the Regency romps of Georgette Heyer and prefer your heat levels scorching hot, you'll love this fun and romantic novella. In this super steamy historical romance, the Earl of Blythe turns the tables on a meddling Regency miss.

Determined to save her cousin from certain ruin at the hands a notorious rake, Miss Heloise Merrill impersonates her cousin and takes her place at the 'Chateau of Debauchery.' She intends to convince the rake - Sebastian Cadwell, Earl of Blythe - to turn his attentions elsewhere.

Deprived of his intended guest, Sebastian decides to provide the meddling Miss Merrill a much deserved set-down. But when things take a decidedly hot turn, he finds he wants to go beyond a simple set-down.

Can Heloise stand her ground or will she surrender to the rake?

I would love there to be a sequel...

I would love there to be a sequel... or even a trilogy...

In this novella they meet.

In the next one they court.

In the 3rd and final they marry.

So love historical novels, Eloise and Sebastian did not disappoint. I was wondering when Sebastian would come to his senses.

Steamy and cute

This is a very cute story that includes one very steamy interlude. It is a short story, but very entertaining. The characters are a treat. I received a free review copy of the audio version of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Poor

Awful. Terrible narration. Insipid characters. Not much plot. I gave up. Don't waste your time.

Mixed feelings

The narrator isn’t great and takes awhile to get past it. I loved his rakish ways but didn’t care for her at all. Hypocrite comes to mind and how stupid she thinks. The sex scene was pretty nice but could’ve been better.

Disappointed

Story line and character development very poor. The narrator struggled but really didn’t have much to work with.

Enjoyable

An enjoyable short story, it has been a very long time since I’ve read a historical romance, and this has made me think I should read others of this genre.
