Publisher's Summary

Some men thrive on scandal.
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.
