My feelings toward the hero of this book are ambivalent. On one hand, I can understand his pain and suffering but he is so proud that I don't know how he ended up being 'kept'. OK...the author tried to elaborate how he was so good at pleasuring women etc. etc. but taking the easiest route didn't seem to go with his character. He also didn't seem too bright. Why didn't he realized what Olivia was up to? Why did he kept gambling when he was no good at it? The heroine fought all his battles which made him seem weak. He also tried to solved every problem by getting drunk (which was OK when he was younger but didn't he learn from his mistakes?). There was no explanation as to whether he tried to find another solution to his problems or if he asked his friends for help. At the end he was accused of murder but it was solved so quickly that I wonder if the whole thing was necessary. He could have come back to his estate inmmediately after the scene in the street and the author would have saved the heroine some pain. This is supposed to be a six book series but the author barely touched upon the idea of the 'Pleasures Seekers' club. She only mentioned one of his friends in a sentence (I assume this one would be the hero of the next book.)Despite all this, the book was an easy read and the sex scenes were red hot.

Though an Earl, Caine ¿Vice¿ Ballinger lives on the fringe of society ever since his father Henry committed suicide off the cliffs of Devon. Caine blames his sire¿s death on Duke Edward Ashton, who called in a debt that Henry could not pay off. The family home Northcote was sold on the auction block once its entail expired. Caine is angry and frustrated because he cannot do a thing to the man who destroyed his family and his heart.

Opportunity for revenge finally arrives when Edward¿s daughter Lady Bliss Ashton attends a party that Caine, as the sex toy of the current owner of Northcote, Olivia Hamilton, is also at. Olivia bets Caine he cannot seduce Bliss, known for rejecting suitors. If he wins he regains his family home, but if he loses he becomes a more attentive lover. As Caine makes his move, Bliss sees inside the angry arrogant man to a warm, caring and honorable person who she loves, but to persuade him that he deserves her means a paradigm switch from detesting the Ashtons.

Though the ¿solution¿ with her father is too easily resolved, fans will appreciate this passionate Regency romance starring two unlikely soul mates who the audience will adore. The story line moves forward rather quickly whether the subplot contains a romantic theme or a murder mystery. Caine¿s personality traits are presented rather early in a delightfully intelligent manner during a tryst with Olivia so that the audience sees the pulls on his character and ironically before Bliss finds them. By George, sub-genre fans seeking pleasure in their novels will gain plenty from this solid tale.
