(Terra's Thoughts) Oh what a way to start a series. Whew....!
This story is delightfully romantic, silly, and a give them a dose of their own medicine type of romance. More romance than carnal lust I found this a treat to cherish. Even good girls have fun sometimes, LOL!
Lana Hillary is a red haired beauty who has been stuffed to the sidelines for two seasons of the tons best parties. Her mother is desperate to find someone for her and I don't think I would wish this man on even my worst of enemies. Luckily Lana's heart has a mind of it's own and over rules her sense of propriety.
Lord Andrew Forest is a devil of a rake and too handsome for any woman to ignore. Known as the best of the worst of rakes with his gaming and women won't help him out one little bit when he finally finds a fire haired beauty who can give him a run for his money. Must be the appeal of the chase that makes our Drew chase this lady as if her skirts were chocolate flavored with a buried surprise just waiting for the daring.
The story is everything we could possibly want from a delectable romance that sizzles with heat. A story that turns innocence into scorching need, a wall flower into a lustful siren and a debauched man into a caring lover. I really can't wait to see what else the author has in store for us after this book especially when there are three more to come. YUMM!
