From Library Journal Witty dialog and a sprightly pace raise this novel above a pedestrian plot common to many Regency and other romances--accomplished libertine loses wager that he will seduce one of society's noted prudes because he falls in love with her. However, this novel adheres more closely to the conventions than many recent additions to the Regency genre. Clever repartee and glimpses of intriguing depth in major characters and political events make one wish that the author had developed them further. Still, this is a highly diverting book from a veteran Regency author, and certain to appeal to Regency devotees.

About the Author After a heroic attempt to be an English major forever, Loretta Chase stoically accepted her degree but kept on reading and writing. As well as working in academe, she had an enlightening if brief life in retail and a Dickensian six-month experience as a meter maid. In the course of moonlighting as a corporate video scriptwriter, she succumbed to the charm of a producer, who lured her into writing novels -- and marrying him. The union has resulted in what seems like an awful lot of books and quite a few awards, including the Romance Writers of America’s Rita. Heralded as “…the long awaited successor to Georgette Heyer” by Library Journal, Loretta Chase’s historical romance novels have been published all over the world.
