Publisher's Summary

To rescue her friend from a loveless marriage, a daring woman dons a disguise and finds herself captivated by a mysterious rake in this "perfect Regency romance" from award-winning author Anne Gracie.

In three years on the marriage market, Grace Merridew has never met a man whose kiss stirred her senses. So she makes plans for a life of adventure instead - to see the moon rise over the pyramids of Egypt and dance amid the marble ruins of Greece. But first she must help a friend in need....

Timid Melly Pettifer is being forced to marry Dominic Wolfe, who stands to inherit a huge estate if he weds. The Wolfes have a terrible reputation, and if there's one thing Grace cannot stand, it's a bully. When Melly begs for assistance in escaping her impending nuptials, Grace acts as the plain and mousy chaperone on their visit to the groom-to-be. But when they arrive nothing is as they expect, and Grace is scandalized to find herself being pursued by a big bad Wolfe....

Contains mature themes.

Good but.......

I did listen to this entire book and liked it all right.... But this book (as well as many others) is really not accurate for the time. I detest it when authors say something like She was so absorbed in this thing that she couldn't pay attention to the other. Balderdash!! No one would be so absorbed in (for example) the coldness of a lake, that they would not realize the buttons of their chemise were opened and a man sucking on their nipples!! Also, most"ton" ladies would be so absorbed in propriety that they would not even allow a deep kiss - especially not a seduction! Yet all of these stupid girls allow this to be done to them! Oh, and two other things- romance authors word have you believe that all these handsome Lords and Dukes have very long and wide penises, and the women all have large breasts!! Other than those obvious "leaps of reality", I liked the story of the middle eastern man coming to England to claim his inheritance and the struggles he faced. I never really understood, though, why the girl - Grace - pretended to be a different person - a companion to her friend. That was a dumb premise!

Too many Inconsistencies.

The heroine comes from a family that believed in their mother's dream. A dream that helped them survive their brutal early life.
Suddenly this dream doesn't count, she believes her evil Grandfather without asking her sisters.
The Hero's property has managed to survive generations of evil and good owners. The Question is; is it entailed or not? If it is, then it can't be sold or mortgaged. Even if the family is heavily in debt and starving. Nor can the Heir be prevented from owning the property, once the previous incumbent is dead. No complicated wills or arranged marriages can prevent it. If not entailed, how did it manage to survive the years of turmoil? Why was he looking into Entailment?
Since these two major inconsistency are the root of the story, everything else is rather pointless.
However, if you can ignore them and other minor inconsistencies, then it is worth listening to.
This story is really all about the sex and the story is woven through the sex. I find it throughly unbelievable, vicars kissing women on meeting them and so.
The supporting characters new and old help the story to have body.

The Perfect Kiss

This is a lovely story about Grace and Dominic. They are just brilliant characters and the interwoven story of other characters brought love and laughter. I almost wished I was there. Anne Gracie has a wonderful ability in her writing to just make an escape into her world. I loved the narrator as well. Her inflection in the various parts was very clever. I cannot impress on you enough to read this story

Great story but…..

Great series but this last one made me feel like I’d strolled into a mills and boon. Too heavy a hand with the sex scenes which were ladled on with a trowel. I skipped many pages trying to get to what was basically a good story. I loved the first book in this series. But by the fourth I was getting quite bored.
