Book Description

4 Jan 2011
Brimming with fiery passion and intense chemistry, this riveting England set Victorian romance, featuring the heart pounding themes introduced in SINFUL SURRENDER, will cement Beverly Kendall s place as a rising talent in historical romance. Lady Amelia Bertram may have a reputation as the most brazen beauty of the ton, but she shocks even herself when she accidently and loudly derides one of society s most eligible bachelors in the middle of a crowded ballroom. The timing of her faux pas couldn t be worse, for her father is seeking someone to take her off his hands that very night. But when Thomas Armstrong overhears the so-called Lady Amelia slandering his sexual prowess in public, he cannot help but accept the dare implicit in her words. To her father s great delight, he offers to take her to his secluded country estate properly chaperoned, of course to teach the girl a lesson in ladylike behaviour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Historical Romannce 10 Feb 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the first one read I have read of Beverley Kendall and it was very enjoyable read.

Amelia is a very strong willed young woman who loves to cause scandal but actually slating a man's bedroom techniques is definitely asking for trouble and Thomas gladly takes on the challenge to show her who is boss. This leads to very amusing interactions between the pair as Amelia tries to stand up for herself but she has met her match in Thomas and soon enough feelings come involved resulting in passion between the pair.

Amusing read with parts of passion to heat up the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars another hit 9 Aug 2014

This was so funny to read the animosity and resentfullness from Amelia towards Thomas it could only have been an explosive and passionate relationship they both develop. The former trysts causing all manner of problems and hurdles to them getting together. It was only fitting that the biggest rake should fall to the ice queen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Turned out well 5 Sep 2013
By Maria
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say that I struggled with this book for a good chunk of the first half, mainly because Amelia is such a thoroughly unpleasant character. I get all the issues with her father and the perceived neglect but her 'feisty spirit' just came over to me as plain mean, with a huge sense of entitlement. She improved as the book progressed and then it was Thomas's turn to be somewhat unpleasant.

Ideally I would have given the first half a '3' and the second half a '4'. Ms Kendall has a fairly easy style apart from her rather irritating overuse of similes. Ease up please!

Something to read in the series. Again the heroine, was a bit weak. Spoilt, selfish and immature. The hero more rounded and believable. Prefer the other books in the se
