Publisher's Summary

They call him many names, but angelic isn't one of them.
Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters", and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best - sin and sin again - and all's going swimmingly…until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.
She's too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world.
Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she's going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him - and with him her family and future - means taking on the devil himself, she won't back down. The trouble is, the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible that the person who needs saving most is Jessica herself.

Witty dialogue highlights battle between the sexes

Alex Kingston (River Song from the 11th Doctor Who series) would make a great Jessica Trent, the heroine of this story. The banter between Jessica and Sebastian, Lord Dain, (large, dark, wealthy) kept me laughing throughout the night as I couldn't stop listening. This book is well served by this audio performance. Kate Reading nails Jessica. The side characters are also interesting, e.g., Genevieve, Jessica's femme fatale grandmother, and Bertie, Jessica's brother. Lord Dain is paranoid about women only wanting him for his money and has a very jaundiced opinion of all females.

If you want an intelligent plot and laugh-out-loud dialogue, give this one a try. It's one of my top five romances.

AWESOME..I'm in love with this story; I want more

The only bad thing I can say about this story is I wish it were part of a series. The relationship between Jessica and Dain was so compelling because it makes sense. Nice job on character development. I love that the called each other pet names like " you little Nit-Wit" and "Clod-pole". I wish there was more.... Excellent work
