Product Description

Product Description

A sparkling, sexy Regency romance from New York Times bestselling author Tessa Dare!

(novella, approximately 28,000 words)


When a girl meets a rake...
Miss Eliza Cade is a lady in waiting. And waiting. Because of a foolish mistake in her youth, she's not allowed "out" in Society until her three older sisters are wed. But while she's trying to be good, she keeps bumping elbows--and more distressingly, lips--with notorious rake Harry Wright. Every moment she spends with him, she risks complete ruin.
The sensual passions he stirs in her are so wrong...but Eliza just can't resist Mr. Wright.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely lovely 17 Dec 2012
By Caz
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a short, charming and above all, emotionally engaging read. Eliza Cade is the youngest of four sisters, and because of a silly mistake she made when she was just fourteen, her father decrees that she cannot make her come-out until her sisters are all married, lest she do something to disgrace them.

At the wedding of her eldest sister, she meets Mr J. Harrison Wright, who immediately recognises in her a kindred spirit. Their verbal exchanges sparkle and are charged with attraction from the get-go, and Harry is just dreamy. Not only is he handsome, he's clever and insightful, amusing and tender; and although Eliza is drawn to him, his reputation is such that association with him could further damage her chances of making her début.

The story follows their meetings across the four years of their acquaintance, and shows their relationship progressing through fun and tragedy into a deep and abiding love. It's warm, sexy and touching - a perfect way to spend a few hours on a cold, grey afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely delightful 25 Feb 2013
By M. K. Burton VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Everyone has heard the rumors about Mr. Wright. He's a notorious rake, and not at all appropriate company for Miss Eliza Cade. While she's old enough to be out in society, her family is convinced that she'll bring them all down into scandal; so convinced that her three sisters must marry before she can have her first Season. And so, spending time with the very scandalous Mr. Wright is dangerous, leading her right down the path her family worries about, but somehow Eliza just can't resist.

This novella was simply delightful. I'll admit to being shallow and mainly buying it because the title was so appealing, but I have read and previously enjoyed a few of Tessa Dare's full-length novels so it was worth the very small price tag.

Immediately, I was struck by how very clever the writing in this book was. I read it in Kindle format, and the number of "highlighters" - other people marking a passage in a novel as significant - was higher than any I'd ever seen in another romance novel. The author has a habit of sneaking truths in dialogue that catch you off-guard and immediately build character. Take this example that comes from Harry when Eliza suffers grief:

"You've seen that all the joy and beauty of the world is fragile. Just bright daubs of paint on the surface of an eggshell. Now you'll reach for it more cautiously. No more wild grasps at glory. It's that innocence you're mourning."

And from Eliza, at a flirtatious moment:

"It's a funny thing about suspicions, Mr. Wright. All too often, they're just vain hopes in disguise."

Little statements, caught in dialogue, but snatching at truths about life and growing up and understanding these characters.
