    Good read!

    Her Grace, the Dowager Duchess of Wexcombe, was going to visit her grandson at his estate whether the rest of her family liked it or not! To stop them from interfering, she asked a young friend, Kit Mallory (widow), to go with her. The two had met on a journey from India. Kit agreed. However, the dowager's family did not like the friendship the two had developed. Determined to show the dowager, and everyone else, what they believed Kit really was, they had Nicholas Darcy (a.k.a. the Marquess of Bainbridge, who was a well known handsome rake) set out to seduce Kit. Though Kit was attracted, she was NOT the loose and self-centered woman that the family believed her to be. Instead, she honestly cared for Her Grace. She ended up having to ask Nicholas for help in smoothing the family trouble Her Grace was having. He agreed, but only if she would sleep with him. A major error on his part! **** Well, that is the best synopsis I can give without ruining it. The author added special touches, such as a Hindu butler named Ramesh and his wife, Lakshmi. Kit, I am happy to report, is not weak willed, empty-headed, or prone to fainting at the drop of a hat. Instead, she is very loyal, things before she acts (except when it comes to giving Nicholas a second chance), and stubborn. I gladly recommend this book to Regency Romance fans. However, a word of warning here, there is more "seduction" than most Regency Romances normally have and Nicholas never left me with a good impression of himself. ****

    Traditional Regency Romance (LVR)

    This is a good read for anyone who enjoys the romance but doesn't need the graphic sex scene(s) included in current fluff being passed off as regency romance.

    Don't Read This in a Public Place!!

    One word sums up this book: Wow!! Up until now, I'd grown sick of wimpy, whiny Regency heroines who do nothing but wring their hands and worry about what dress to wear, and heroes who have no depth of character beyond being handsome, wealthy, and well bred. Here, Ms. Powell gives us a heroine who is intelligent and emotionally vulnerable, and a flawed hero who manages to redeem himself in the end. I won't reprise the storyline, since the other reviewer has already done so, but I must say I was very impressed with Elizabeth Powell's dealing with a storyline of seduction. I was reading this in a bookstore coffeehouse, and the seduction scenes made me...well...let's just say I was getting very flushed. Finally, a rake who acts like a rake! Not only that, I was impressed that the author gave me a peek into Nicholas's mindset - the reasons behind his behavior. He didn't come off as slimy at all, but a man who had his own demons to defeat. I'm a fan of Mary Balogh, Carla Kelly, and Edith Layton for the exact same reasons - they get us into the characters' heads and let us see what makes them tick. I will certainly look forward to Ms. Powell's next book.
