Publisher's Summary

The Woman:
Lady Henrietta Maclellan longs for the romantic swirl of a London season. But as a rusticating country maiden, she has always kept her sensuous nature firmly under wraps -- until she meets Simon Darby. Simon makes her want to whisper promises late at night, exchange kisses on a balcony, receive illicit love notes. So Henrietta lets her imagination soar and writes...
The Letter:
A very steamy love letter that becomes shockingly public. Everyone supposes that he has written it to her, but the truth hardly matters in the face of the scandal to come if they don't marry at once. But nothing has quite prepared Henrietta for the pure sensuality of...
The Man
Simon has vowed he will never turn himself into a fool over a woman. So, while debutantes swoon as he disdainfully strides past the lovely ladies of the ton, he ignores them all...until Henrietta. Could it be possible that he has been the foolish one all along?

My favorite Eloisa James! Yes, I've read them all.

This is an extremely humorous but still quite romantic book. James has a gift for sly humor and the careful observation of the not-always-so-delightful way in which children enliven our lives. I read this book a few years ago and liked it so much I wanted to hear it performed. Of course, the reader couldn't outperform the voices in my head but she came very close. Wonderful! There is an order to these books. Cam and Gina's story comes before this - Duchess in Love. Esme's story runs through these books -Duchess Quartet series. Although there is no Duchess at the heart of this story

Because of a hip problem Henrietta is unable to have children as her mother had the same condition and died in childbirth so this takes her off the 'marriage mart' but she dreams of motherhood. However, she doesn't plan on meeting Simon, a devout bachelor and longs for a love that just cannot be - but she writes herself a love letter which has dire consequences for them both.

Enjoyable and fun romance with likeable main characters and a good supporting cast of other characters. It also catches up with Esme and Sebastian's story from book 1 but it could be a stand alone book.

Worth a credit? It's all you want from a Regency romance and it's written by E.J. so it's a definite YES from me.
