This is a regency romance. And the title makes it sound a lot worse (or erotic) than it really is. In fact, this was a heartwarming romance. Fancy is the new opera star in London and Prince Stepan vows to make her his own. Fancy doesn't want to follow in her mother's footsteps and have an aristocratic lover, so she keeps pushing Stepan away. However, Stepan doesn't give up because he realizes he's in love and wants to marry this songbird. Along with this storyline, there is the subplot of a murderer who is targeting members of Fancy's theatre group. I really enjoyed this story. Fancy and Stepan are just made for each other. They both have strong personalities, but they compliment each other. They disagree a lot, but it makes things more interesting. The subplot (serial killer) really helps along their romance. The supporting characters are all fun and have showed up in past books and future ones. This book is part of a series, but it also stands alone. This is the second story I've read by Patricia Grasso and I can't wait to read more. Pick this one up!

In 1821 Fancy Flambeau debuts at London¿s Royal Opera House when Prince Stepan Kasanov asks to see her afterward. She wants to decline because she hates the aristocracy having been deserted by her upper crust sire, but they meet anyway. He also meets her six younger sisters and escorts them home as it is dangerous with the Rose Petal killer preying on performers for women to walk unescorted.---- Stepan begins seeing Fancy while also being kind to her sisters. At a ball hosted by Stepan¿s relatives the Duke and Duchess of Inverary, Fancy sings, but is nasty to the Duke who is her father. She tells him she waited by the window anytime it rained for years hoping he would visit, but he never did. He regrets his actions and invites her and his other daughters to live safely with him. Fancy agrees to allow her siblings to stay with the duke, but not her. As Stepan and Fancy fall in love, he worries that the Rose Petal killer targets her so he risks all to keep his beloved safe, but the serial killer proves quite clever.------ Readers will enjoy the strong likable lead characters and find fascinating the unique paranormal skills of each of the Flambeau sisters though Fancy¿s constant shrill about the aristocracy can become tiresome. The Rose Petal serial killer provides an interesting subplot that will have the audience wondering who e is. Fans of Regency paranormal romantic suspense will gain immense pleasure from Patricia Grasso¿s fine work and look forward to future tale starring the siblings.---- Harriet Klausner
