Product Description

About the Author

Georgette Heyer novels formed Sophia James’s reading tastes as a teenager. But her writing life only started when she was given a pile of Mills & Boons to read after she had had her wisdom teeth extracted! Filled with strong painkillers she imagined that she could pen one, too. Many drafts later Sophia thinks she has the perfect job writing for Harlequin Historical as well as taking art tours to Europe with her husband, who is a painter.

By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 31 Mar. 2013
Format: Paperback
A country house party in the 1830s gives some libertines the chance to pursue a young lady and she hides in the bedchamber of Taylen, Duke of Alderworth. But Lady Lucinda Wellingham has found no safe harbour, for his name is a byword for dissolution....

Reading Machiavelli, the Duke is pleased to have company, and locking the door, he explains his parents' broken marriage to Lucinda, to excuse his lack of morals, before changing his mind and taking her home in his carriage. Taylen didn't bargain for his carriage crashing in the dark, and soon all of London knows how Lucinda came by her serious injuries. The girl's horrified brothers take out their anger on the wounded Duke and order him to save Lucinda's name by marrying her. Taylen's family's debts will be paid but then he must leave England.

The resulting wedding makes nobody happy, but Tay feels the weight slip off his shoulders as the sea breeze takes him to America, where in Georgia there are fortunes to be made. Prospering, he feels the need of an heir... but the only woman who can give him one is in England, and she despises him.

Among the wealthy set the mere possibility that an unmarried woman might have been alone with a man was considered scandalous, while married women (after a few children had been produced) and men behaved with less concern for rumour. Thus the story puts too much importance on whether Lucinda had actually been ravished. Her injuries were seen as an inescapable hazard of travelling. Later, Lucinda moves house to a bachelor household without taking any servants with her, when she would certainly have brought her own ladies' maid.

I personally didn't like this book. First she liked him, then she didn't, then she sent him away whilst complaining cos he went. Then he came back nd she agreed to have sex for a price. I thought it was rubbish nd irritating.

Not a great book. Plot was disjointed and the characters not well formed. Was disappointed when the main character acted like a prostitute demanding money to allow her husband to sleep with her. overall a big disappointment
