Book Description

3 May 2007
Ian Prescott, the Marquess of Griffith, is a cool-nerved British diplomatic renowned for his integrity, and famed among the British debutantes for his striking good looks. Much to their dismay, the handsome marquess has no use or love. He conceals a dark secret surrounding his disastrous first marriage and the death of his wife and has vowed never to marry again. On a diplomatic trip to India, Ian is asked to watch over the daughter of an old family friend, Miss Georgiana Knight. He is instantly intrigued by Georgiana's striking beauty that conceals a sharp mind and a shocking independence. A ruling belle of local society in India, Georgiana is out of her element in London and yet she's determined to conquer the ton on her own, refusing Ian's protection every step of the way. Ian is infuriated by Georgie's wilful defiance, as much as he is captivated by her natural charms

Beneath a bold sky of peacock blue, the sun-baked city of Calcutta unfurled along a palm-lined meander of the Hooghly River like a living tapestry, or a rich silk shawl that billowed on a spice-laden breeze. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern writing with a historical twist 4 Oct 2007
A very well written page turner. If you like Julia Quinn then you'll like this book. I read it from cover to cover on a long duration trip and actually read the ending twice.

Thoroughly enjoyable historical romance, with a few steamy skirt-lifting scenes. The heroine is not your usual milk white simpering bit of fluff, she's actually believable with foibles.

I enjoyed this and want to read the next one in the series that is due out in December 2007.

4.0 out of 5 stars Her Only Desire 4 April 2013
Review taken from my Blog Post #107 - another one that I borrowed from the Library back in April 2011, and thought I would share my thoughts:

This one was really the first the the Knight Cousins' spin-offs, about Georgiana Knight (Sister to Gabriel & Derek).

Raised all her life in India, Georgiana is very often left alone, but has made a life and friends independently, and therefore sees no wrong in inviting the cool and reserved Ian Prescott, Marquess of Griffith to stay when he arrives on a British diplomatic mission.

On his very first encounter with her he ends up effecting a rescue to save her life, and puts her under house arrest whilst he goes off on his mission to Japur .... she has other ideas and follows ... which leads her into uncovering the truth but causing a diplomatic nightmare of Ian, and heavy fighting by her brothers to protect her (in which Gabriel receives his injuries).

She flees alone on a Knight ship to England, where she is determined to conquer the ton, and fights Ian's protections for all she is worth. Infuriated, but captivated nonetheless, will this lonely Marquess fall for her, and reveal his own secrets?

On the whole a 4 Star read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story, would read the rest of the series 17 Jun 2011
Ian Prescott, the Marquess of Griffith is in India assisting the British government during the wars. He does this not for money, for he us rich enough, but wanted to escape his past in England after his wife died in mysterious circumstances, leaving behind their 5 year old son, Matthew. In India, he meets Miss Georgiana Knight, the cousin of friends of his.She's been living in India with her Indian friends, hoping to aid peace in the country. Ian finds her intriguing, but vows never to remarry, so decides to reign in his feelings. But Georgiana wants Ian too and tells him shell aid him in his quest, despite wondering if she can fully trust him. When she's caught with evidence of the queen's involvement in a plot to overthrow her husband, Ian has to step up to defend her when her life's in danger. They go to England where he tries to keep her safe. Feelings grow between them but Ian still suffers from his past demons and Georgiana is determined to find out the truth. But trouble lies ahead, when Ian's mistress interrupts them. Mistrust engulfs Georgiana further, where she learns he's had 2 mistresses since his wife's death. He doesn't want to lose her so breaks it off with the mistress and says he will marry her. It's not the vow of love or proposal she envisages, and her doubts deepen when she discovers he has a son and his ex mistress informs her she will not be loved like he loved Catherine his first wife. Meanwhile a spy of the Indian queen arrives and tries to kidnap Ian's son, but Ian intervenes and kills the kidnapper making Georgiana see a side of him she never knew existed. But she loves him and when she sleeps with him they each confess their love and marry shortly after. Since the wedding they move to his former home he shared with his first wife. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put it down 31 Oct 2007
By Diane
I bought it because it was by Gaelen Foley and was not disappointed! Georgiana has been brought up in India and the richness of the history is really brought out here and her practice of yoga is not contrived just to add to the story. The erotic temple art certainly adds a spicy dimension to their relationship. I loved Ian Prescot. He is at first stern, duty bound and protective. He fights his attraction to Georgiana yet is exasperated by her wilfulness. The love scenes are steamy and right for them and the moment- she is not a shrinking violet and he is not immune.
I will read this again and can't wait to read about Georgiana's brothers.
