The last of the Seducer Series and I read it first...which led me to buy the previous ones...

I love the unique characters and the beautiful dialogue...

“So, I am Mr. Hampton again. It seems that I am only Julian when you forget yourself."

"I...that is..."

"We have known each other more than half our lives, Pen."

She had not even noticed what she called him.

"I do not want you to call me Mr. Hampton in private conversation ever again.”

“Perhaps you should put an advertisement in the papers. You can have it listed under livestock. Stallion sought, something like that."

Now, that was uncalled for, and outright rude. "What a splendid idea," she responded. "Only why play with metaphors? The direct approach is always best. How does this sound? Gentlemen required for a temporary affair of convenience. Unexceptionable reference from previous lovers required. Must be willing to be named in criminal correspondence. Should be presentable, experienced, and have a strong back.”

“My incomparable beloved,

Seven months you have been gone, and I fear you will never return. I await your brief, infrequent letters like a boy, desperate for any small indication that you remember I exist, hoping for evidence that you tire of that foreign land where you now live. I read your missives a hundred times for the slightest intimation that you will be coming home. The part of my mind that does nothing but wait grows daily, and soon nothing will be left to attend to life's duties. One word, my love, just one; that is all I seek. One word to let me know that you will not stay away forever, and that I will at least have your presence and friendship in my life, even if I can never have your passion and your love."

--Julian Hampton to Penelope, Countess of Glasbury”
