Lady Mélisande Compton, Countess of Wilmington in her own right, has never forgotten Lord Alessandro Orsini, the Italian rogue she met during her visit to Versailles. When the celebrated rake resurfaces in London, Mélisande seizes the opportunity and shamelessly proposes an affair for the Season with no strings attached. Five years ago, Alessandro met his perfect match in Mélisande. Though the fiercely independent lady has sworn off marriage, it doesn’t stop him from vowing to make her his wife. While seducing her body, Alessandro wages tender warfare on her heart’s defenses.
But a bitter rival also burns to possess Mélisande, and luck has provided the means to bend her to his will: A scandalous secret from her past that could ruin her. The price of his silence? Her hand in marriage. In Liana LeFey’s delectable debut, Mélisande must choose between the desires of her heart and everything else she holds dear.

Melly. She was so fiesy, so brave, so loving, so everything.
Every single word she said.
One reviewer said the narrator was nasally and that couldn't be further from the truth! She was awesome. Perfect, whether she was doing a French, English or Italian accents. And, whew, when she did Alessandro's voice it made you want to "swoon."
But my favorite character was Melly! She was one of the best heroines ever.
David, Reggie and Charlotte were great secondary characters. Herrington? Well, he was a piece of s**t and got all that he deserved. And, finally, there's no such thing as too much discriptive/explicit sex. Go read a Christian book if you don't like sex in a book.. Just sayin'
