Fui supreendida por este romance histórico com os seus avanços e recuos na relação entre as personagens principais. A cuidada descrição de cada personagem levou-nos a encaixar em certos pacotes e preconceitos, e depois somos surpreendidos com o humor e a critica mordaz de alguns conceitos.
Her only hope for survival... Handsome, wealthy and respected, Sir Mark Turner is the most sought-after bachelor in all of London and he's known far and wide for his irreproachable character. But behind his virtuous reputation lies a passionate nature he keeps carefully in check...until he meets the beautiful Jessica Farleigh, the woman he's waited for all his life.Boas leituras
Is to ruin the man she loves...
But Jessica is a courtesan, not the genteel lady Sir Mark believes. Desperate to be free of a life she despises, she seizes her chance when Mark's enemies make her an offer she can't refuse--seduce Mark and tarnish his good name, and a princely sum will be hers. Yet as she comes to know the man she's sworn to destroy, Jessica will be forced to choose between the future she needs and the love she knows is impossible.
