From the Back Cover
Lady Marianne has found romance only between book covers. But the dashing marquess is about to give her a lesson in love she'll never forget...
LESSON #1: NEVER TEMPT A LADY
Become a bride? Never! Lady Marianne Shelton has come to London to experience life, and marriage is not part of her plan. To finance her independent future, the pretty country miss pens a series of anonymous stories. Soon they are the talk of the ton -- and only she knows that her wicked hero is based on none other than bold, brash Thomas Effington, the future Duke of Roxborough.
LESSON #2: NEVER DENY A MARQUESS
Thomas has been thrust into the role of Marianne's protector. When she threatens to experience life with the first willing rogue to come along, he decides the best recourse is to tutor her himself. And when he accidentally compromises her honor, he's willing to accept their only recourse: a wedding. Marianne claims she wants no part of marriage, but her intoxicating allure and disarming willingness make her irresistible. And now Thomas is determined to teach her a lesson: that true love will last forever.See all Product description

This is a very witty, charming and exceptionally wonderful book. I can't wait to find out which characters will feature in future books by Victoria Alexander. The only problem with this book was that once I started reading it I couldn't put it down.
It is a very amusing little tale, with excellent interplay between the lead characters, finely supported by a cast of amusing extras.
The self-analysis of our heroine/hero's feeling for one another is kept to a minimum, not pages as in some I have read, allowing much more time for excellent interactions between all the characters.
Thomas Effington is a lovely, and Marianne is a witty, feisty young lady.
Well worth a read.

The characters in this story are endearing; I look forward to seeing them again in future stories. The romantic and sexual tension kept me turning the pages well past my bedtime. Victoria Alexander will hereon in be ranked with Julia Quinn, Christina Dodd, and Jill Barnett as favorite authors of romantic humor.
However, the lady did protest a bit too much, in my opinion. Surely even a dimwit could have divined that Thomas was in love with Marianne, even if he didn't think to say the actual words. And the sexual encounters between the two were too numerous to be consistent with this period. One would have been enough to make any unmarried couple fearful of pregnancy, but as many times as these two go at it...well, it's an accident waiting to happen! And, from the start, I was doubtful that society of the period would cast an approving eye on a situation where three young girls came to live in a home with an eligible bachelor, even sporting a dragon of a chaperone.
Still, this is a captivating story that will have you in tears of joy and laughter clear to the end. Let's have more like this one, Ms. Alexander!
