She might look like an angel...

The moment orphaned American heiress Titania “Tansy” Danforth arrives on
English shores she cuts a swath through Sussex, enslaving hearts and stealing
beaux. She knows she's destined for a spectacular titled marriage—but the
only man who fascinates her couldn't be more infamous...or less interested.

...but it takes a devil to know one...

A hardened veteran of war, inveterate rogue Ian Eversea keeps women
enthralled, his heart guarded and his options open: why should he succumb to
the shackles of marriage when devastating good looks and Eversea charm make
seduction so easy?

...and Heaven has never been hotter.

When Ian is forced to call her on her game, he never dreams the unmasked
Tansy—vulnerable, brave, achingly sensual—will tempt him beyond
endurance. And fight as he will, this notorious bachelor who stood down
enemies on a battlefield might finally surrender his heart...and be brought
to his knees by love.



本書男主角就是在《What I Did for a Duke》一開頭出現的那個被捉奸在床,狼狽地光著屁股、穿著一只靴子逃回家的Ian Eversea,終於輪到他的故事了。我以為作者會給他安排一個“道高一尺魔高一丈”的女主角讓他吃吃苦頭,可惜,沒有這樣。
女主角是個孤兒,是Falconbridge公爵(就是《What I Did for a Duke》的男主角)的遠親,原本住在美國,父母雙雙去世,遺囑將她托付給公爵,她所有的財產,必須婚後才能動用,而婚事必須要得到公爵的認可同意才行。所以她來到Pennyroyal Green,公爵夫婦將她推向市場,尋找可靠的夫君。故事一開始就是公爵去警告Ian不要來招惹他的監護人,這二人,上次的恩怨還沒了結,到這裏,又杠上了……
男主角Ian是標準的sleep around,這種男主角真的很難讓人有好感。故事還不錯看,但是,有點拖戲,而且照例又把Olivia Eversea和Lyon Redmond的故事拿出來吊胃口,好煩。沒有達到Julie Anne Long的平均水準,所以權衡之下,只給3.5葉。
