Tobias Walcott, the Earl of Blade, has learned it is best to exercise rigid control over his passions and emotions in all that he does. Uncaring that it makes him seem cool and aloof to most in the ton, he is content with his desire to only woo agreeable and demur females. Then unforeseen circumstances see him trapped in a closet at a house party with the last woman he would ever make his countess.

Lady Olivia Sherwood is everything he should not desire in a female—unconventional, too decisive, and utterly without decorum. But passion ignites between them and they are discovered. Honor demands they wed, and while Tobias finds himself unwillingly drawn to the bewitching beauty, he must do everything not to tempt the passion that burns in him for her, lest it leads to disastrous consequences.




What happens when a man who’s tried hard to hide his true self under the veil of propriety meets a woman who refuses to hide who she is, who does what she wants – for the most part- and who stimulates both of his heads every time he’s around her?

You get an outstanding, sometimes funny, occasionally steamy, historical romance, that’s what.

What happens when it’s excellently written, smoothly flowing, perfectly-plotted and paced with well-developed, unique characters including a heart-stealing, chivalrous, strong-willed hero and a passionate, willful, loyal heroine, and enough backstory to make you want more? Oh, and throw in a great meet-cute, an unexpected tryst in a closet that somehow didn’t seem the least bit out of place for the usually stuffy, unbendable hero who totally unleashed his own passion, and a somewhat, not-really-a-mystery, mystery that works to bring the story to a lovable, beautiful ending?

You get a book reviewer- namely yours truly- who smiles and itches to write a great review telling everyone they need to read it and report back on this blog telling us how quickly you fell in love with Tobias and how much you want to go to hang with Livvie.

I’m waiting!!

Rating system: Cups of Coffee (the less the better)

0: You won’t need any coffee to stay up for this one. It’s intriguing enough all on its own.
1: You’ll stay up late, but not all night. Brew one cup.
2: You’ll read as long as you’re not tired. If you are, two cups should do the trick.
3: I hope you got plenty of rest; you’ll need it, or at least 3 cups.
4: If the cable goes out, read the book. It’s better than nothing, I guess. Oh, don’t forget your brew!
5: Find anything else to do- it doesn’t matter what it is. Don’t waste your coffee. Too much caffeine is bad for you.
