Overview

Lady Diana Westover is looking for a hero. She intends to write a gothic novel, but having grown up shielded from the ways of the ton, she knows nothing about men. What better way than to explore the ballrooms of Society? During her first outing, she sees Edmond Terrington, Viscount Adderley. With his dark handsome looks, he is exactly the man she's been looking for. So Diana sets out to follow his every move, to study his manly form, and to experience the pleasure of his kisses . . . all for the sake of research.

Edmond cannot imagine why this chit would be following him, spying on his every move, and looking at him as if he is a fascinating bug in a science experiment. He's used to admiring females, but this is ridiculous! So he decides to turn the tables and pursue her instead . . . only to find that she is a disarming beauty whose wit matches his own. Soon all he wants is to be the hero of her dreams.

Ms. Moore is a wonderful writer. She is delightfully witty, and her characters are cleverly developed. The 'Kiss' series is very entertaining as are her 'King John' and 'Brothers-In-Arms.' I'm an avid reader of historical romance and have just recently discovered Ms. Moore's talent.

I stayed up to 2 a.m reading this book it was so good I couldn't put it down. I loved the fact that Diana wasn't a milk-sop-miss. She had a good head on her shoulder and was extremely intelligent. I appreciated that. I also loved Edmond because he was caring and confident. This book is not one to dissappoint. This is the second Moore book I read but not the last. BOTTOM LINE:Buy it QUICK, read it faster....

In 1817 following the death of her father a duke, Diana Westover joins her two aunts in Bath. Her goal is to meet men, not to marry, but to use them as models in a novel she plans to write. At the Pump Room, Diana sees the perfect person to serve as her book¿s villain Count Korlovsky although her Aunt Calliope detests her choice in ¿suitors¿ Lord Adderley, Edmond Terrington. Instead her aunt believes mama¿s boy Crispin Fallston would be a better partner for Diana.

Edmond finds himself fascinated yet concerned over the way Diana seems to spy on him. Everywhere he goes she is there, staring as if she can look inside him. Even more bewildering to the notorious rake than this seemingly harmless stalking, is that he begins to feel he loves the outrageous chit. Although she knows not to become involved with Edmond, Diana reciprocates his feelings.

This is an entertaining Regency romance because of Diana, who serves as a refreshing lead protagonist and the extracts from her novel included within this book make for fun reading. Edmond is the stereotypical rake whose image needs PR as it fails to hold up to the reality quickly understood by the wannabe author. The support cast enables readers to understand the two stars and hopefully his friend Brix and perhaps his bane Fanny will star in the next tale in 1817 not when he turns fifty.
