Book Summary:

She wasn’t looking for love . . .
Her beauty rivaled only by her sensibility, Venetia Lanyon is nearly resigned to spinsterhood, thanks to the enormous amount of responsibility she inherited with a Yorkshire estate, an invalid brother and the lackluster efforts of two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then she meets her neighbor, the infamous Lord Dameral, a charming rake shunned by polite society — exactly the type of man that a woman of quality should stay away from . . .

He wasn’t looking for redemption . . .
Though his scandalous past and deepest secrets give Venetia every reason to mistrust him, a rogue always gets what he wants. Without warning, his demanding kiss threatens to become a bachelor’s undoing . . . and a spinster’s most passionate awakening.

Ah, such fun! Venetia’s lack of adherence to social norms made her such a great character. I loved reforming rake Lord Dameral who gets taken in by Venetia’s charm. Their ensuing relationship and interactions make for such an entertaining Regency romance.

This one is definitely one of my favorites of Heyer’s books.

Rating: 5 Stars – I loved it!
