New York Times best-selling author Mary Jo Putney has claimed two RITAs, two Romantic Times Career Achievement Awards and four Golden Leaf Awards. Her mastery of the historical romance is evident in every word of Nowhere Near Respectable. Damian Mackenzie is an incorrigible gambler just honorable enough to save Lady Kiri Lawford from dangerous smugglers. That does not, however, mean he has any desire to return her romantic interest - until he learns Kiri’s not exactly the prim and proper lady society expects her to be.

My kind of Hero
The plot is good. Not quite in the league of Georgette Heyer, but good a good adventure. I I enjoy the characters being carried through the books and the development of the characters. Could do with less explicit sex. It quite spoils the flow of the story and feels contrived I would rather leave something to the imagination.
I do sense a desire to entwine modern feminism and human rights into the stories which pushes the credibility ( schools for wayward aristocrats, and indian dukes). Overall ,the story is good but does not need this level of sex to sell - Despite the latter, this is light escapism which I enjoyed and think is worthy of more than the sex image.
Please dont put the explicit sex into the film.
