Historical fiction at its best

I came upon Ask For It by some serendipitous quirk of fate - its the first (and only, sadly) historical I've read by Sylvia - but it won't be the last, if I have anything to say about it!

I came upon Ask For It by some serendipitous quirk of fate - its the first (and only, sadly) historical I've read by Sylvia - but it won't be the last, if I have anything to say about it!
Marcus Ashford, the Earl of Westfield, was jilted by his fiancee Elizabeth years ago. She then proceeded to turn right around and marry someone else! Needless to say, Marcus has been harboring a bit of bitterness over the whole affair - and when his chance comes to get back at his erstwhile former fiancee, he takes it. But things aren't quite as simple as he'd like them to be - least of all his feelings for Elizabeth.
Due to a misunderstanding, Elizabeth left Marcus and married Lord Hawthorne. She is now a widow, and holds the key to a mystery the Crown would like to solve. Which means she and Marcus will be working together - very closely.
I'm almost unsure how to describe this book - its unlike any other historical I've read, and yet its a wonderful example of the genre. Its as if Ms. Day has just dropped us smack-dab into the center of these people's lives - it feels that immediate - but I never felt lost or confused. She has a completely natural voice in this genre. And, unsurprisingly, the love scenes are erotic and memorable. There is one particular scene that comes to mind - almost brutal, but incredibly sensuous at the same time - VERY intense. This is now one of my favorite historical romances. Extremely well done.

Forgettable...

After reading Bared to You this was very boring. I had to force myself to finish it. I kept waiting for something great to happen.

    Not recommended for serious Sylvia Day fans!

    Rather forgettable characters. Didn't hold my attention.
