Jessica Benson has done it again! In the tradition of "Lord Stanhope's Proposal," Benson has written a delightful, laugh-out-loud regency with a hero and heroine you will adore! Ms. Benson has gone further this time, however - she has written what may possibly be the most romantic, sensual love scenes I have ever read (and I've read too many to be comfortable telling you). I pre-ordered this book in August based on her first book, and was thrilled to have it arrive yesterday. I won't bother telling you the plot - you don't have to know anything but the blurb to read the first few pages - and you don't have to read anything more than the first few pages to be hooked for the book. When her groom tells Gwen "You bring me to my knees, Gwen" I just about went to mine - and I was lying down! This book is fabulous! For Regency lovers, it is Georgette Heyer with seductive romance added. For romance lovers, it doesn't get any better than this. And if you've never read a romance, you may want to start elsewhere - this book will ruin you for any other romance! I'm trying not to go on and on, but I have to stress again that this book is funny, sensual, and, above all, truly a ROMANCE - unlike so many other books on the market today, you know why these two people fall in love! If you've never read Lord Stanhope's Proposal - get that one too. Ignore the silly title and cover - it, too, is funny, romantic, and has heroes you can really root for. I've purchased about 15 to 20 of this book for friends and family - and they all loved it. Two more things and then I'll let you order (I suggest RUSH DELIVERY): 1) Another strong point in Ms. Benson's favor is that her plots are tight and have wonderful twists, the characters stay true to themselves, and the secondary characters are beyond wonderful. You will know these people! 2)Contrary to what you may think by reading this review, I am NOT Jessica Benson, nor am I related to her, nor do I know her. However, to be perfectly honest, I wish I was Jessica Benson, or was at least related to her or knew her - she's that good. Please buy this book - you won't regret anything except that it's over! I have to go now, I'm going to read it again. Enjoy!
