"So what do you say to the wager, Miss Prentess? A diamond worth thousands against a night with me?"

No London beauty has managed to tame the incorrigible Jasper Coale, though many have lost their reputations trying. In sedate Bath on a family errand, the viscount expects to find little in terms of entertainment—certainly no female company to tempt him.

I absolutely loved the previous book in this series, Beneath the Major’s Scars, and as that featured a hero who had a twin, I just had to read the sequel. These books are both perfect Regency romances with all the best ingredients – handsome heroes, beautiful courageous heroines, wonderful settings and sparkling dialogue. While the first book was set in a gorgeous country house (with a library to die for!), this one takes place in my favourite town, Bath, which is perfectly described. All we nee ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the authenticity of the setting, and the Rake's gradual softening towards the heroine, which I found touching.

I greatly enjoyed Jasper's tale! Susannah was an excellent heroine with unconventional ideas that she was not afraid to stand up for. She was really an admirable woman with a desire to do well for others. Jasper was a lucky man- and a good man! I enjoyed this just as much as his brother's tale. Great duet!

Reading the blurb on the back I thought it was just the type of romance I like. But for something that was supposed to stir emotion, I found myself remaining detached and unable to connect properly with the characters.

Note: This book was received from Goodreads First Reads.

The story lacked depth and fluidity. I couldn't connect to the h/h and therefore didn't really care what was happening to them. Since its my first read by this author I persevered till the end in the hope of things picking up; alas.

I didn't like this book, though it's hard for me to point out where it went wrong. Neither the H or the h intrigued me at all, and the first 1/3 was a drag to get through.
Angie Hardy
I am a fan of historical romances and this one was no exception. I loved the sexual tension between Jasper & Susannah.

I received this book free from GoodReads.
Sharon Kennedy
Enjoyed this because of the setting but I do have to admit I wasn't overly concerned with the fate of the hero and heroine.

I liked his brother's story, but this one didn't work for me. DNF.
