This is a reissue of a book originally published in 1995, now in e-book form. It’s a fairly run-of-the-mill and rather clichéd historical romance which I didn’t find particularly engaging. There was one part of the story I liked (more of that later), but on the whole it was flat and one-dimensional as, sadly, were the characters.

The heroine, Alyssa Carrington has managed her wastrel father’s estate for years. She’s 24 and fully expects to remain a spinster, having set aside a small sum of money

I enjoyed this heartbreakingly emotional regency romance . The characters will captivate the readers . The storyline is intense & ripe with intrigue that will keep you on the edge of your seat . An arrogant Duke meets a woman who will challenge him in every way . First he wanted her for his mistress . Then he wanted her for his bride . And now , she doesn't want him at all . What to do ? Sometimes a Duke must take matters into his own hands . Whether it's for the romance or the suspence - ei

I don't know why I finished reading this book. The writing was awful. Too much detail into every movement of the characters, not enough character development, and too much telling not showing.

Intimate Betrayal

It is a good Entertaining Story .I read the Story in one day. It took me awhile to figure out who was the bad guy. I had my suspicion and the end proved me right . It would have been the very best if Alyssa had Twins a Boy and a Girl. I would have liked that . As it is it was a good story.

Well written

The duke comes to the rescue...sort of. He is offering for her to become his mistress she thinks he offers marriage. Along with the improbable romance the couple must find who is selling secrets to France and implicating the duke.

Found this book while looking through my myriad of boxes for a good reading material for a lazy Saturday afternoon. This one did not disappoint - sweet story, easy reading, great ending (although I sorta figured out who the bad guy was waaay before the ending).

Every once in a while I enjoy a mindless romance novel.

Predictable, oversexed and melodramatic, but still a decent way to pass the time.

Το βιβλιο αυτο με ενθουσιασε απο την αποψη του οτι υποδειχνει διαφορα ιστορικα στοιχεια της εποχης και την πραγματικοτητα ως προς τις ατυχεις συμπτωσεις που πραττονται καθημερινα στη ζωη.
Although I wasn't expecting to appreciate this, it was quite a good read. For once a heroine with a bit of spine, and the series of events and misunderstandings are slightly less run of the mill.
