Sexy, provocative and simply delicious! If you’re looking for a guilty pleasure read, look no further! Set in London 1888, Felix Ravendale, Marqess of Wenworth has perfected the persona of “The Ideal Gentleman”. To everyone in the Ton, he appears simply perfect, above reproach and the standard to which all other bachelors are held. But Felix is far from the gentleman he appears to be. He shuts himself off from true relationships due to the horrible childhood he suffered at the hands of his own parents. After witnessing such spite and manipulation by his parents, he is certain he will never allow himself to fall victim to the clutches of love. Louisa Cantwell comes from questionable background and can barely claim that she is a true lady, and does so only due to her mother. She comes from a home that desperately needs a daughter who can marry well and support all of the other siblings, and she’s the one to do it. She’s practiced the art of being a lady and knows exactly which bachelors are within her reach. When she sets off to London to have her season, she knows she must marry and marry well. But little did she know she’d run into the “Ideal Gentleman”. Both Felix and Louisa are not the people they appear to be in public and even upon their first encounter, both seem to see through the public persona of the other. Drawn to each other by an extreme sexual desire, Felix and Louisa embark upon a wild, sexy, steamy, and scandalous love story that leaves both Felix and Louisa both madly in love and extremely vulnerable. Can these two lovers overcome all the obstacles thrown at them or are they willing to let fear and memories come between them? Can Louisa break through the wall that Felix is determined to keep erected around his heart?

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book and I cannot wait to read more by Sherry Thomas! The hero and heroine in this story were funny, witty, passionate and risqué! The dialogue between Felix and Louisa was sexually charged and well written, leaving me dying to keep turning the pages! I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. The book seemed to be broken into two parts which worked well and made the story move along in a great way. The first part is the story about Felix and Louisa while Felix is trying to win Louisa over. You get to see Felix as a charming and persuasive yet manipulative man while Louisa struggles to resist the outcome of marriage to him. Once married, Felix seems to shut himself off from Louisa because he is afraid of repeating the mistakes of his parents. Louisa is left trying to figure out how to re-establish the passion and connection they shared before marriage. Unraveling the mysteries and secrets that seem to drive Felix’s actions becomes key to solving the marital problems between Felix and Louisa. Absolutely one of the best and sexiest Historical Romances I have read in quite some time. A Must Read!

A long time to say nothing

I found this book to be very wordy. The author took forever to tell her story. For me, it was much ado about nothing. I would not recommend it.
