Part of The Beauchamp Heirs: After being plucked from peril by resolute bachelor Lord Hugo Alastair, Lady Olivia Beauchamp is secretly outraged that he doesn’t even try to steal a kiss! He’s a notorious rake amongst the ton and as a result, utterly forbidden to an innocent debutante like her. But their attraction is magnetic. Will she risk her reputation for a passionate encounter?
A lovely, Regency romance with an innocent, impetuous heroine, a reformed rake and all the hustle and bustle of Regency England that makes this a must for lovers of this romantic era.
Olivia is easy to like, and as she loses her heart, you feel her exasperation and pain. Hugo is the archetypical dissolute rake, but his chance encounter with Olivia, has him questioning his lifestyle and finding out that underneath his ‘devil may care’ attitude he may have a heart.
There is romance, an engaging Regency setting, a desperate villain and simmering passion, a perfect escapist read.
