Publisher's Summary

She's taking charge
Prim, proper, and thrifty, Eve Dinwoody is all business when it comes to protecting her brother's investment. But when she agrees to control the purse strings of London's premier pleasure garden, Harte's Folly, she finds herself butting heads with an infuriating scoundrel who can't be controlled.
He's running the show
Bawdy and bold, Asa Makepeace doesn't have time for a penny-pinching prude like Eve. As the garden's larger-than-life owner, he's already dealing with self-centered sopranos and temperamental tenors. He's not about to let an aristocratic woman boss him matter how enticing she is.
But love conquers all
In spite of her lack of theatrical experience - and her fiery clashes with Asa - Eve is determined to turn Harte's Folly into a smashing success. But the harder she tries to manage the stubborn rake, the harder it is to ignore his seductive charm and raw magnetism. There's no denying the smoldering fire between them - and trying to put it out would be the greatest folly of all....

"One of the Best Non-Sex Sex Scenes Ever"

Ashford McNab's narration was very good but the accent changed for Asa Makepeace from a cockney accent to a refined one in a matter of ten minutes.
Liked the storyline a lot, characters were very well developed and the draw of the hero to heroine was so perfectly designed by Miss Hoyt that it left no room for doubts. Sometimes I read a story and I wonder why I waisted my time at the end because except outward appearances, title or money, there is nothing else to hint at love, but not so here. As you get further along the story, the love builds and blossoms and the sex scenes add an entire other level. The initial two sex scenes were literally two of the best I have read to date and it was especially amazing because it was done without any physical contact. I enjoyed this book fully and recommend it without a doubt.

The most erotic Maiden Lane yet!!! And the story is pretty good too. This is definitely one of my favorite in the series. There are several I listen to over and over again and this one will be added to the list!

Ashford MacNab is the voice of the series! (I wish the few books read by someone else would be re-recorded by Ashford - I'd by them again without question!)

You cannot miss this book in this fabulous series.
