Overview

Wiltshire, England 1845

Lady Lily Jameson is thrilled to attend a house party given by Daniel Farnsworth, the Duke of Lybrook, but not because he’s the most eligible bachelor in the peerage. Her only interest is his famous art collection, which reputedly includes a painting by her favorite artist, Jan Vermeer.

Daniel, duke only by virtue of the untimely deaths of his father and older brother, wants nothing to do with his new duties. He’d rather continue his rakish ways. When he finds the lovely Lily sneaking around the property in search of his art collection, sparks fly.

Despite her father’s wishes, Lily has no intention of marrying. She wants to travel the world to gain real life inspiration for her painting and writing. And what could be better worldly experience than a passionate affair with the notorious Duke of Lybrook?

But circumstances may change the game and the players…and danger lurks, as well.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Ms. Hardt has a way of writing that makes me forget I'm reading a book. It's more like slipping into a world she created and getting lost for a while.- Tiger Lily, Whipped Cream Reviews

The writing was fast paced, and HOT for an historical romance…with lots of chemistry between Daniel and Lily, and lots of fun on Lily’s part! There was the requisite drama, well played out. The characters were full of fun, laughter, mischief and of course some hot sexy! - Bound by Books

Who knew Victorian England was so hot and naughty!?! I could not put this book down!! Helen Hardt created two strong characters, Lily and Daniel, who are multifaceted and as a reader you are pulling for them to be together. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series, Rose in Bloom. Keep up the great work Helen!

Freaking hot!! Historical romance isn't something I read frequently but this series is amazing. You really get engrossed and want to know more! You can't go wrong with this one! :)

This was a funand light read. I picked this book up after a very emotional book. I found myself easily engaged and rooting for the main characters. I loved the backwards time hop to England. I also like that this book was not charged with tons of "romantic" scenes. There was just enough to get you through the book. I will be reading what happens to Lily's sisters and cousins!

I have read a lot of historical Romance novels and this one is on my top ten. The story grabs you from the beginning and I could not put it down. This story was well written and I will read more from this author .

Not sure what the other reviewers are reading, but I cannot agree. This book is so horribly written, the plot and character development so bad, that the reader can't even focus. I feel bad that other readers might think this is a good example of regency/historical romance.
