Sebastian Grant, Earl of Avemore, is one of the greatest and most prolific writers of his generation. Which is why, after watching his abysmal new play, Daisy Merrick doesn't hesitate to slate it in her review.
But despite what flame-haired, outspoke critics might think, writing is the hardest thing in the world for Sebastian to do. Not even the chance to critique Daisy's work as she in turn helps with his, inspires him enough to write.
An offer of kisses and a hint of seduction, however, are something different entirely...
The fourth of LLG's `Girl-Batchelor' series (And Then He Kissed Her
, The Wicked Ways of a Duke
, Secret Desires of a Gentleman
) focuses on the outspoken, forth-right Daisy, who can't keep her opinions to herself, nor hold down a job either. Yet at heart she's a dreamer and a romantic, who longs to become a published author herself. Sebastian is a true LLG tortured hero, but his struggles and his addictions, not to mention his strength and well-hidden romantic streak save him from unbearable angst.
Daisy's reactions to Sebastian and her stubborn determination to make him write again make her the perfect partner for him. Her optimism versus his cynicism, his perfectionism versus her passionate joy means that their every encounter sparks with wit, temper and heat. Together they make a good team.
Putting the pains of writing, perfectionism and obsession up against the joys of inspiration, success and love, the Girl-Batchelor series continues in fine style. Only LLG can generate this much romance and heat without a single touch.
