Though Hugh Claremont's rakish wit and skill on the dance floor enliven an otherwise dull social event for Amelia Stockdale--during which she is yet again completely ignored by the fiancé foisted upon her by her older brother--she is shocked to find him climbing through her bedroom window later that evening with plans to seduce her. Amelia rejects Hugh's advances, but his presence is nonetheless discovered and the ensuing scandal brings an end to her engagement and provides her brother with an excuse to disown her and cast her out.

When she refuses even the most basic charity and instead insists on staying at a disreputable and dangerous boarding house, his patience reaches an end and he takes her over his knee for a sound spanking.
While scandalized by his chastisement, Amelia is nevertheless drawn to Roland. The tall, broad-shouldered former military man combines a genuine concern for her needs and opinions with a willingness to deal firmly with unreasonable stubbornness and willful defiance.

Remarkably well written Regency. This is a wonderfully crafted story. The author's use of language and detail really makes you feel like you are in England during the Regency years. Both the main and secondary characters engage you. The crisp well thought out dialogue not only gives you a good understanding of the characters traits and motivations. The dialogue is crisp and smart. I flew threw the story disappointed when it ended. I'm hoping we will soon have the opportunity to read about Hugh and Margaret's story and to see how Roland and Amelia are doing in their new life together.
