Publisher's Summary

National Reader's Choice Awards finalist

Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense finalist

A sizzling enemies-to-lovers romance featuring a hoyden who falls in love with her best friend's brother and a viscount whose buttoned-up exterior hides his hot-blooded nature. All wrapped up in an exciting regency house party whodunnit! 

A hoyden’s prejudice

Spirited and unconventional, Miss Violet Kent has landed in hot water time and again due to her impulsive ways. Her latest fiasco involves Richard Murray, Viscount Carlisle, her friend Wickham's older brother.

She and Carlisle hate each other on sight, their animosity culminating in a mortifying accident. Ashamed and inflamed by their encounter, she wants to stay far away from the stuffed shirt but, instead, finds herself trapped with him at a secluded and intimate house party.

A gentleman’s pride

A man of honor, Richard Murray, Viscount Carlisle, has always protected his brother Wickham, whose latest trouble involves a debt to a cutthroat. To survive, Wick must marry an heiress; instead, he’s distracted by that improper hoyden Violet Kent.

As Richard strives to extricate his brother from Violet’s wiles, the last thing he expects is to find himself ensnared by passion. 

When murder leads to love

Sparks fly when Violet and Richard encounter each other in dark corners and secret passageways. Yet, their forbidden passion and blossoming romance are not the only adventures afoot. For, a guest is soon discovered dead, and Violet and Richard must join forces to solve the mystery and protect their loved ones...before the murderer strikes again.

I AM TRULY LOVING THIS SERIES...

I love this series... I can't wait to finish one to get to the next one. Likable heroes and ladies! Just the right amount of STEAM! I'd give it a 4 out of 5 for the steaminess...but I like that. Good narration. What more could you ask for? I also like that each book is a good length in hours. I try to only buy audiobooks over 8 hrs. min. Well, on to the next book!!

Excellent Story, narration! Steam, love, intrigue!

Another smash hit from Grace Calloway. This regency romance has steam and intrigue in perfect amounts. A witty, brave heroine and dashing, forthright hero fall in love as they solve a mystery.

Violet is an excellent FMC. She's hilarious, clever, bold, innocent yet alluring, and knows her own mind.

Richard is the kind of MMC I can really appreciate. He's strong, stoic, misunderstood, and hiding tons of raw passion under his upright exterior. Swoon!!

I love the way these two opposites attract and come to know and appreciate one another.

I laughed out loud so many times during this book. The passion is off the charts, and I love the cozy setting of a house party!!

This entire series is excellent, I had been awaiting Violet's turn and this did not disappoint in any way!!

Too much rumpy pumpy

Don't expect a build up between the lead characters, they are at it from a couple of chapters in. I listened on, wished I hadn't bothered really. Don't mind a bit of the how's-your-father but it became tedious.
