JAL delivers original plots and witty dialogue. The heroine, the daughter of a country vicar, accompanies a friend to the house party of a notorious rake, the hero, an earl. She is not his usual style but he admires her beauty and intelligence and the chemistry between them is fairly immediate. The plot has some quirky twists and turns and I liked the way the heroine stands up to the sophisticated friends of the hero even though she is way out of her depth. A keeper.

a really yummy read with some achingly lovely moments i did not like some of the plot near the end as i found it slightly unrealistic but it is worth 5 stars for the many butterflies to the stomach !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!spoiler ..................i wonder though if it had not been for the housekeeper sending those little notes would he have gone back to her?he left her for three weeks does not sound very romantic and she herself was pretty mean in the end the mistress seemed to have loved him more at some point! but i absolutely loved the scene at persephony how sensually yummy!
