From the superbly gifted Sherry Thomas comes this beautifully written romance about a marriage of convenience that turns inconveniently passionate...

Felix Rivendale, the Marquess of Wrenworth, is The Ideal Gentleman, a man all men want to be and all women want to possess. Even Felix himself almost believes this golden image. But underneath is a damaged soul soothed only by public adulation.

Louisa Cantwell needs to marry well to support her sisters. She does not, however, want Lord Wrenworth--though he seems inexplicably interested in her. She mistrusts his outward perfection, and the praise he garners everywhere he goes. Still, when he is the only man to propose at the end of the London season, she reluctantly accepts.

Louisa does not understand her husband's mysterious purposes, but she cannot deny the pleasure her body takes in his touch. Nor can she deny the pull this magnetic man exerts upon her. But does she dare to fall in love with a man so full of dark secrets, any one of which could devastate her, if she were to get any closer?

I love Ms. Thomas's writing; this is my favorite so far: most interesting, unusual, and complex characters. In particular, the hero has a difficult journey that he must accomplish to become the man he should be, and to win the heroine's respect and forgiveness. Beautifully plotted, with delicious sensuality. References to the progress of astronomy at the time worked as period detail, and as part of the bond between hero and heroine. A luscious book: no question -- I'll read it again.

I'm not even surprised that this was such an awesome book. How can I expect anything less from a man with a name as sexy as Felix?

Fun and original story that didn't follow the usual historical romance
formula.

A charming book! While some of the scenes are more adult content, the eventual playfulness between Louisa and Felix is fun and entertaining to read.
