Lord James Hamilton, heir to the Duke of Abercorn and newly appointed attendant to the young Prince of Wales, is in no rush to find a wife and take on a more responsible life. A lover of all things pleasurable, James has earned his reputation as a rakehell of London. But when a feisty beauty piques his interest, James finds himself obsessed with learning more about her, and even contemplates making her his own.
Lady Anne Curzon-Howe has long been besotted with her dear friends' handsome elder brother, James-ever since the moment he compared her to a wild Irish rose. While Anne has many suitors, the elusive James is the only man who draws her fancy. But Lord Hamilton's rakish ways are notorious for a reason, and convincing him to love only her will be an incredible-albeit rewarding-challenge.

Long and no romance
I should have listened to the reviews. Good lord, we heard more about the Royals of England/Wales whichever more than I wanted to know. We could have done without all that and get to Ann and James' story and romance with a little intrigue thrown in. Priscilla has a good reading voice but her male and female interpretations were killing me! Could have gotten a better book with this credit!

History lesson not romance
Would you try another book from Virginia Henley and/or Priscilla Carson?
Yes, I have and liked other books from both.
What could Virginia Henley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Drop half of the book and add more romance.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I liked the narrator, she did a great job.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I had several emotions through out the book but never a lot at once.
Any additional comments?
I found the first half of the book boring and almost pointless. I have loved some of Virginia's books in the past but not this one. I wish I would have listened to other peoples reviews. The book end abruptly and I said "that's it? You've got to be kidding me." I did enjoy a glimpse of past characters from past books.
