The virgin and the rake. The Duke of Arden is whispered to be the most magnificent lover in all of London. He is exactly who innocent Roslyn needs to teach her all about passion. Roslyn has been in love with her neighbour since she was a girl and she’s determined to marry him. But knowing that gentlemen lavish passion on their mistresses but seldom their wives, she has resolved to learn all she can from a master before she can catch her intended husband. But while the Duke is happy to tutor her in the art of love, will he also let her go?
This book had a little bit of every thing. Two characters damaged by their parents actions, one who doesn’t believe in love and the other who refuses to settle for anything less.
There is intrigue and the identity of the highway man was a unique situation that I really enjoyed.
There is plenty of heat in the love scenes be warned if your not a fan of explicit details, this is not a book for you.
I loved the characters in this book they are well crafted, empathetic, entertaining and believable. The pace develops organically there is no rush to love but an acknowledgement of lust. This was an entertaining read and one I highly recommend.
