just right, but Ms. Vane nailed it! The wording, the details, and the plot were all spot on. The story was rich with clever wording, delightful banter, and likeable characters.
Well most of them. My first impression of the hero, Marcus went like this.“ You Sir are a Cad.” Marcus is a man trapped by the rules of society. As the second son he has no choice but to marry a woman with a decent dowry. This is the last thing Marcus wants to do so when he
lands a job title of undersecretary to the foreign minister, he uses it to stall the wedding for six
long years. It’s only when his betrothed’s father dies that he’s forced to face the fact. He needs to marry her before it's too late and she loses all of her father’s assets.
The problem is, Lydia’s had enough. She wants to end the engagement and cut her losses.
Marcus is convinced he can change her mind,(vain man that his is) but when he returns to
“woo” her , he discovers this isn’t going to be an easy task. It’ll take a lot more than that to win her over.
What follows next is a charming, sexy , witty journey that will entertain, amuse and tug at your
heart strings. The sexual encounters range from sweet to steaming. So if you think historical is tame you’d be wrong. This is a brilliant story I highly recommend to readers looking for a quick read with substance and true skill. My hats off to Ms. Vane.
