In 1847 following a fruitless Season in which she pretended to seek a husband, twenty year old Marissa York decides to have sex. She chooses Sir Peter White whose charming words are seductive. However, lovemaking proves tedious to her as he humps away. An arrogant Peter says they will marry, her brother Edward and their cousin Harry catch them. . Edward informs his sibling she will be married, but he agrees White is not worthy of his sister.

Their other sibling Aidan arrives with family friend Jude Bertrand. Once both are apprised of the need for Marissa to marry, Jude volunteers. An illegitimate but acknowledged son of a duke, he simply explains when asked why he replies because he likes her. Marissa is thankful for his kind offer, but he is not what she envisioned in a husband as he can't even dance. As they become better acquainted, she realizes Peter could dance but cared nothing about her while Jude takes the time to know Melissa the person. As she falls in love with her new suitor, he was in love with her for a long time.

This is an entertaining Victorian romance starring a wonderful Prince Charming whose motive for marrying the fallen Melissa is simple though he knows she never knew he existed in spite of two introductions. Melissa at first seems spoiled but she proves a fast learner as she realizes you cannot judge a man by his clothing or his dancing ability. Readers will root for the heroic Jude who tenderly courts his beloved with little nuances like listening to her.

    Highly Recommended

    I love this book, the characters are unique and the story line is different than from any other book I have read. Melissa is unlike any of the other young ladies and Jude is a good person who just happens to look different from the young men Melissa prefers. Even though he knows this Jude is willing to help out. The characters are so different, but perfect for eachother.

    Unique Historical Romance

    I really enjoyed this book and loved how she addressed the idea of a woman wanting to experiment when she should have been chaste.

    The characters were great and I thought the romance between the main characters built nicely.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical romances with a twist.

    Entertaining but predictable

    Was a fun light read, characters were quite fun but also very predictable. Love scenes were quite explicit, but that's to be expected ;-)

    sorry

    A girl with such a reputation would never get the chance to marry the son of a duke.
