Despite the unpromising title, this is a lovely Regency romance. It centres around the hasty marriage of Lord Ruin and Anne Sinclair. I enjoyed reading his side of the story and it was a refreshing change to read of the rake falling hopelessly in love before the innocent virgin bride succumbs! Ms. Jewel writes very well and there's plenty of sensual loveplay and sexy scenes (is there anywhere in the house they didn't perform?!). Sometimes the 'token mystery' writers include just get in the way being so incidental as to be superfluous, but the plot kept my interest to the end. My slight criticism would be the naming of the hero - really, why must writers think it's so amusing to give their sexy leads names like Lord Ruan/Ruin (get it) and Insincere Cynssyr - please! But don't let the title put you off, this is a great book.
