OK, from the date and comments I've read about this book, I'm going to assume this was one of Eloisa James' first attempts at a romance novel. So I ca ...more

Despite the racy title, this book is my idea of a nearly perfect romance: nuanced characters, interesting plot, chemistry that's not *just* lust/desir ...more

Minx (The Splendid Trilogy, #3)
