Well enough written, but too unbelievable for me to lose myself in its fantasy. The heroine supports herself on Corfu by taking in laundry and making herbal medicines. She, of course, is really a lady, the daughter of the wild black sheep younger son of an English aristocrat who has disowned his son and granddaughter. At the very beginning of the story, Alessa saves Casper Chancellor (Chance), Earl of Blakeney from a would-be murderer and so their relationship begins. Unfortunately, this is followed by several instances of totally inappropriate sexual behaviour for a gentleman and lady at that time (including a scene on a pirate's ship when they both have their hands tied and Chance has just escaped from his locked cabin. Huh!). There are also lots of those ridiculous misunderstandings and moments of temper, which drag out the way to the final 'I love you. And I love you' scene. Not recommended.

Alessa loves her life on Corfu; she works hard, lives decently and adores her two foster-children. The last thing she needs is a handsome English aristocrat getting attacked on her doorstep, generating unfamiliar feelings within her and threatening to reconcile her with her stuffy English family. Nevertheless, Benedict Chancellor, Earl of Blakeney is fascinated by the fiery beauty and cannot walk away, however hard she urges him; his own urges are in quite a different direction! But how will this gentleman of very conventional habits win over an independent woman?
