    Historical Hot Romantica Novella. Highly Recommend!!

    Absolutely enjoyed this short story about a Lady that dresses as a man to gain entrance into a gentleman's club. She was only hoping to find her brother who had been gambling away their inheritance but instead she found Lucien. The characters in this story are just so likable. Julianne, the heroine, is feisty with a backbone sturdier than most men. Lucien is so lovable and sweet when he isn't behaving badly and ravishing Julianne. I enjoyed watching these two find love, amidst a roller coaster ride of emotions: jealousy, angst, love sickness, oh and lust. Lucien is the son of a Duke, and that Duke's "love of his life", a prostitute. The interactions between Lucien and his family only add to the story and make it all that more adorable. The love scenes are so hot and risque even though Julianne attempts to remain a virgin, un ruined for a suitable husband. I was able to read this book in one sitting on a rainy afternoon. It's about 100 pages on my Nook but seemed to have a lot more meat to it than other novellas I have read. This is my first historical romance, and I found it easier to read than expected. I recommend this story to all readers looking to fill a rainy afternoon with some sunshine. I read this as a follow up to, Catching Caroline, since Julianne was introduced briefly in that book and I look forward to more by this author.

    Every woman wants the Bad Boy ... but He only wants Her!

    Lucien is definitely a bad, bad boy; however, the chemistry with Julienne is fabulous!! The buildup between these two characters breaks down all social barriers of the 19th century. This short story is 100 pages long and can be read quickly. The author did a wonderful job of helping the reader connect to the characters and the internal struggles of their passions.

    Really enjoyed this one!

    Even though it was a novella, this story had everything it needed: romance, heat, and love. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    it's short (101 pages) and hot! worth the $$

    So nice to read a regency without a simpering virgin. The girl knows what she wants!

    Excellent free read...

    This was a fun read. I was surprised at how I rooted for Lucien, despite this being such a short book. Lots of steamy scenes for only 100 pages.
