Product description

Review

Sizzling, addictive, and deeply romantic: Miranda Neville’s novels are a joy to read. (Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author)

From the Back Cover

She is determined to find a husband. . . now!

Lady Diana Fanshawe’s impeccable bloodline doesn’t stop society from laughing at the antics of her eccentric family. She knows a proper marriage is her one chance to make her way in the world—which is precisely why she will marry Lord Blakeney, though she’s certain she’ll never love him. But then she’s kissed by the brilliant and unconventional Sebastian, Viscount Iverley . . . and her well-laid plans tumble into disarray.

Sebastian wants absolutely nothing to do with love or marriage. But when he arrives at his hated cousin Blakeney’s house party, Sebastian is smitten by the tantalizing Diana. But Diana is “the marrying kind,” and Sebastian has no wish to risk his freedom—though the passion betweenthem is hard to resist. Should the lady follow her heart in an attempt to win Iverley’s, though it seems hardened against her—or should she sacrifice her love for respectability?

This is Sebastian's story - the intellectual, vague, scruffy and disparaging of women Sebastian. In a quirky twist he gets a makeover from his marvellously well-dressed mates and sets out to pursue the beautiful, unattainable Diana who desperately wants to marry someone else and has always somewhat despised Sebastian. I rather liked the way Diana was gradually won over and how Sebastian adjusted his misanthropic outlook and they reached a satisfactory HEA.

For many years Lady Diana Fanshawe has been infatuated with the Marquis of Blakeney. No one has ever been as handsome as Blake and she fully intends to marry the man. But while Diana is one of the guests at Mandeville, she meets Sebastian Iverley. The bespectacled scarecrow's interests tend toward the intellectual, so it is no wonder they meet in the library. Diana soon finds herself making a wager with Blake that she could get Sebastian to kiss her. As Diana spends more and more time with the awkward Sebastian, she finds herself enchanted. When the kiss occurs, the young widow realizes how much she actually enjoys his presence.

All his life, Sebastian had been told by his uncle that women were poison and that treachery was part of their nature. But Diana turns his head as no other ever has. Shortly after he kisses Diana he learns of the wager. Before he can do anything rash, Sebastian is called away to his uncle's deathbed in Northumberland. He returns as a viscount. His rage toward Diana never dims. With the help of his peer friends, Tarquin and Cain, Sebastian has a complete makeover. He would make Diana care for him and once she wants him as he had once desired her, he would reject her and teach her the meaning of humiliation.

**** FOUR STARS! Though this plot has been done before, I seldom recall reading the lady as the character placing the wager and the gentleman as the innocent. I must say that it gives the story a bit of zest this way. The main characters are well developed with interesting backgrounds. Their friends, as secondary characters, are equally engaging and manage to add their own bit of flavoring to the ongoing plot line. Filled with irony, romance, and humor, readers will find time zip by as they enjoy this gem. Perfect for some cozy reading near the fireplace on a cold evening. ****

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second book in the Burgundy Club series.

Lady Diana Fanshawe, a widow, has longed for the handsome, golden haired Lord Blakeney for many years, and hopes he will one day ask her to marry him. But then she meets his cousin, Mr Sebastian Iverley, who is in direct constrast of Blakeney. With ill fitting country style clothes, glasses, a booklover and no interest in women, Diana is puzzled by him. What Diana doesn't know, is Sebastian and Blakeney don't get along, as Blakeney was often cruel to Sebastian as a child for his 'odd' ways. Blakeney makes a bet with Diana to make Sebastian kiss her. She agrees, even though she has no need of the money, so she agrees to give it to charity if she wins. Throughout their interactions, Sebastian finds himself falling in love with Diana, and after sharing a kiss, wants to marry her. But before he asks, he overhears Blakeney discussing his bet with Diana, and immediately feels a fool. He leaves and returns to his own home after hearing of his uncle's ill health. When his uncle dies, he inherits the title and becomes Viscount Iverley. He starts wearing better fitted clothes and vows to return to Diana, make her fall in love with him and cast her aside. In the time he's absent, Diana worries he left because he found out about the bet. She is amazed when she Sebastian returns to find him with title and with a changed appearance. Ladies begin to show an interest, and Diana is upset when Sebastian seems to ignore her. But it is all part of Sebastian's tactics to get her attention. He even stages a robbery, acting the hero when the highwayman threatens to shoot. This makes Diana realise his importance to her and makes herself available to him.

**Background and Some Slight Spoilers****

Diana Fanshawe is a beautiful young, wealthy, widow who has a hankering for the Marquis of Blakeney, long time neighbor and rake of the first order. She is at a house party at Blakeney's when she first meets Sebastian Iverley, cousin to Blakeney and as different from Blakeney as day is to night. Sebastian and Blakeney have a past that goes back to their young years when Sebastian would visit Blakeney and his sisters and they would make fun of the skinny, bespectacled Sebastian - in fact their nickname for Sebastian was Owlverley and Blakeney still calls him by that name behind his back.

Blakeney is a very handsome titled young man and women want him - a lot of women. Sebastian is dowdy, wears very ill fitted clothing and cares nothing for society - not even the company of women. His primary interest is in obtaining very rare books whereas Blakeney's main interests appear to be all that is frivolous and irresponsible.

Blakeney does want the lovely and wealthy Diana, however, so that he won't have to rely on his father for money. Sebastian has never been around females very much and hasn't had any real interest in women to this point. He is that most rare of men in his class - yes, he is a virgin. But, he finds himself very unexpectedly susceptible to the lovely Diana and her charms. In fact he is so taken with her, he hardly knows what to do with himself.

Diana, in good fun, makes the mistake of participating in a wager that she will be able to get Sebastian to kiss her - this wager being between herself, Blakeney and a couple of other guests. Uh oh! Diana wins the wager but Sebastian and the kiss soon have Diana thinking long and hard about Sebastian in ways she would not have considered.
