Overview

Artemisia Dalrymple Pelham-Smythe doesn’t give two figs for the town’s opinions on propriety. She wants to be taken seriously as an artist, so the widowed Duchess of Southwycke is painting the entire Roman pantheon in glorious nudes. The man who arrived to pose for her is far too muscular and virile to fit her vision of a cherubic Cupid, so she’ll simply turn him into Mars.

Trevelyn Deveridge never expected to pose naked to serve Queen and country, but the trail of the elusive Mr. Beddington leads right to the door of the duchess. Unless Trev retrieves Beddington’s key, a whole string of operatives in India are in danger of discovery. Since he’s convinced Her Grace can point him in the right direction, he's left with little choice but to play along with her artistic endeavors.

Besides, when a lady asks a gentleman to disrobe, how can he refuse?

GREAT READ! Romance builds slowly - mostly due to miscommunication what each wanted. The sex is great - you will be hot hot hot!!! The loved the H/h a lot, and the best deal is to buy the bundle of 3 books. I didn't give it 5 stars, because it is slow in parts, and I wish the Epilogue was a little more in the future. The story will have you laughing and also in suspense. I would recommend this book or anyother by Mia Marlowe. (ljb)

Hero: 7/10 Heroine: 8/10 Sizzle: 9/10 Romance: 6/10 Humor: 7/10 Secondary Characters: 6/10 End: 8/10 Pace: 5/10 I liked this book a lot. The hero and heroine are endearing and I believed in their feelings for each other and the intimacy they share is all the hotter because of that belief. I loved the subtle humor in this story. As well as the suspenseful moments that had me on the edge of my seat a few times. The writing is great. This was a new-to-me author and I'm very happy I've discovered her books. I had very few complaints with this book! I know! I'm shocked too! Honestly though, my only issues were with the pace. I felt it was rather slow for most of the story. The end felt a bit dragged out as well unfortunately. I did like the ending though, so I'm a bit conflicted there. Oh well, this was a solid read… I liked it, I'd read it again, and I'd absolutely recommend it.
