The novel has much to recommend it in terms of dialogue and humor, although the frivolity started to annoy me after a while. The hero especially. After a quarter of the book, he sees the heroine only as a great gun and laughs at situations that aren't lighthearted. The hero's friend is even worse, a chump that runs away whenever his wife cries.

And then after rescuing a fourteen year old from a life of prostitution, the hero kisses the girl on the lips - which I found distasteful in the extreme.

Miss Minerva Potts is a singularly unremarkable young lady but that doesn't mean she has to put up with her future husband burying her in the country while he carouses in London. So Mina calls off the engagement with Lord Whithall and runs out of a party and into the streets where she's rescued by a handsome, charming young gentleman, the Devil's Delight himself, the Earl of Rossland.

I enjoyed this book. It starts with Minerva being humiliated when she overhears her fiance talking about what a stupid, biddable wife she will be. She rushes off in tears and runs right into the Earl of Rossland. Lots of intrigue and plotting in this one. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit, until the end. The horrible French accents grated on my nerves. Other than that, it was pretty good.
Very enjoyable story. Started out great but got a little slow in the middle. G-rated. I would definitely read more by this author.

My favorite of Lansdowne's far. Her heroes are always comical, yet good and honest, men.
