Dolph is infatuated with Belinda (our heroine) so he has her father put in jail and gets her fired from her job, just so that she has to marry him. Bel refuses and ends up becoming a courtesan. Robert Knight (Knight - sigh!) Duke of Hawkscliffe, thinks he can use Bel to find out the truth (about a murder) from Dolph because of his infatuation with her. So Robert strikes a deal with Bel. He becomes her protector and she has to pretend to be Robert's Mistress. Gradually over the Season, they start to fall in love and Robert protects, cares and even risks his life for Bel.
Unfortunately, the scheming Earl of Coldfell offers Robert a plum political position in exchange for marrying his daughter Juliet. Bel won't be mistress to a married man, so will Robert come to his senses in time and realise that Bel means more to him than risking any scandal? Will Robert agree to marry Juliet? Can Robert live without Bel? Is Dolph the murderer? Will they all live happily ever after? Read it and find out.

I re-read it time and time again and still enjoy it. I have read this story countless times now and it is such a FANTASTIC book. The characters, storyline, detail, places Foley describes and romance are all excellent. She makes you feel part of the story and you really want them to live happily ever after. Bel is an intelligent and beautiful heroine who has made the best of the bad situations she has fallen into. The characters really come to life and are everything you could ask for in a Hero and Heroine.Read more ›
Miss Hamilton is the perfect heroine full of beauty, wit and compassion. After losing her job at a young girls' finishing school she refuses to be beaten and knows she must do all she can to help her father. She is certainly no weak, timid female but beneath her hardened surface lies a vulnerability and fear, which she is determined to hide.
Bel and Hawkscliffe appear to be a match made in heaven but there is only one thing stopping them from living happily ever after: Society. Faced with a heartbreaking decision, they risk losing each other to please the outside world.
Not only is this book wonderfully romantic, the plot is very gripping and excellently written. An expert in her field, Foley avoids making the story seem corny and the characters shallow. The ending however, did seem rather far-fetched and not what I would have chosen but that certainly didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book. It was some of Foley's other work which got me hooked on this genre and for that I thank her greatly. Nothing beats a bit of Regency romance.
If you're after heart-melting romance and raw sexual passion this book is exactly what you need. The sizzling chemistry between Bel and Hawkscliffe will take your breath away and arouse in you desires that you never knew existed.
