Publisher's Summary

Captain Xavier Grey's body is back amongst the beau monde, but his mind cannot break free from the horrors of war. His friends try to help him find peace. He knows he doesn't deserve it. Just like he doesn't deserve the attentions of the sultry bluestocking intent on seducing him into bed....
Spinster Jane Downing wants off the shelf and into the arms of a hot-blooded man. Specifically, the dark and dangerous Captain Grey. She may not be destined to be his wife, but nothing will stop her from being his mistress. She could quote classical Greek by the age of four. How hard can it be to learn the language of love?

Another great Ridley book

Another great Ridley book. Always too short, though. Great narration.

I love Jane. I always love a Bluestocking. I hope the rest of the books in this series are released on audio soon.

Series keeps getting better

Any additional comments?

This series keeps getting better and better. I was actually sorry to see this novel end.

Jane is a bluestocking and a wallflower. At twenty-four, she sees herself as a spinster whose only friends are her books, because nobody notices her. Xavier is a captain, recently returned from the army, who doesn't feel like he belongs in society anymore. When Jane pursues a dalliance with him, acting on a crush on him that began before he left for battle and thinking it might be her only chance ever for romance, both of them find more than they were looking for.

In retrospect, having just finished the book, it would have been nice to see more of the other characters who have been mentioned in the previous two. In the context of the plot, though, I think it worked well to focus on just the two main characters; it didn't feel out of place as I was reading. Jane was lovable and relatable, and I really enjoyed the time I spent reading about her.

I received a free advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
