I’m sure that there are other readers who would enjoy this novel far more than I did, but I personally would not recommend it for anyone except perhaps, hard-core fans of Loretta Chase. One look from her tawny eyes is dangerously captivating. You can always tell all the characters apart and I thought she did a great job with the Comte d’Esmond’s slight accent.
Of course his previous, youthful, misdemeanours and crimes become known niggt his love for Leila Beaumont develops, and he is utterly delicious Rating is for the story.
