“Be careful, Amelia – you know how reckless you can be!”
-Mrs. Charlotte Harris, headmistress
Lady Amelia Plume has many admirers – it’s too bad they’re all fortune hunters and fops who can’t provide the exotic adventures she seeks. But the ballrooms of Mayfair have become much more appealing since the arrival of Major Lucas Winter, an American with a dark past and a dangerous air. Lucas is brash, arrogant – and scandalously tempting. Every thrilling kiss sparks hotter desire, yet Amelia suspects Lucas has a hidden motive in wooing her. And she intends to discover it, by any means necessary.

The narrator often makes or breaks a story
I've always enjoyed Ms. Jeffries, and I'd try another book narrated by Ms. Eyre---as long as she didn't make another attempt at depicting an American male voice.
Meh. Kind of lackluster.
Her portrayal of British characters was fine. Her narration of an American female character was tepid, but okay. However, her attempt at portraying the hero, an American soldier, was DISMAL, and really ended up ruining the book for me. I was continuously yanked out of the story by it. She made him sound like---I don't know, a hillbilly more than anything else. In addition to that, she very often had him slipping into British pronunciations. Perhaps the worst thing was her very annoying habit of continuously (when in the hero's voice) pronouncing the word
Perhaps she could have the hero fall back into his old fears...but I don't know that there would be enough there for a whole new story.
Justine Eyre = American male voice = (shudder)
