"I don't want you," he said.

"Liar," she said.

"You're so conceited," he said, turning away. "You, Miss Vestal Virgin Grenville, think you know everything. You didn't even know how to kiss until I taught you."

"I don't recollect begging for the lesson," she said.

"And so you conclude you're irresistible."

"To you, yes. I should like to know what else I should [cont'd]

"Ainswood, let me explain something to you," she said. "If you wish to make a declaration of love to your wife, the accepted form is to say, simply, 'I love you.' The accepted form is not to dare and daunt and go about it in your usual belligerent way. This is supposed to be a tender moment, and you are spoiling it by making me want to throw a coal bucket at you."

I am a sucker for the hero keeping those little keepsakes. Roarke had a button, Derek had a pair of glasses, and Vere has a pencil stub. *sigh* So romantic.

"Very well, have it your way," she said. "I'm not going to beg you. And perhaps, after all, it would be wrong of me to ask. The venture would be far too dangerous for you."

She turned and moved to the hackney. She said something in a low voice to the driver. While she exchanged secrets with him, her shawl slipped further.

Vere swore under his breath.

He knew he was being manipulated. [cont'd]

"All you had to do was smile," he said. "And bat your eyelashes and thrust your bosom in his face, and Crenshaw would have done whatever you wanted."

She gazed at him unblinking for the longest time. Then, from a hidden pocket in her black skirts' heavy folds, she fished out a small notebook and a stump of a pencil.

"I had better write this down," she said. "I do not want to lose one priceless [cont'd]

"I don't want you," he said.

"Liar," she said.

"You're so conceited," he said, turning away. "You, Miss Vestal Virgin Grenville, think you know everything. You didn't even know how to kiss until I taught you."

"I don't recollect begging for the lesson," she said.

"And so you conclude you're irresistible."

"To you, yes. I should like to know what else I should logically conclude from your behavior. And I should like to know why you have to make such a fuss about it."

"I am not making a fuss--and I wish you would stop using that patronizing term."

"I wish you'd stop lying," she said. "You do it very ill. I don't see why you can't admit you find me attractive, and it mortifies you--because I annoy you, and because I'm an ignorant virgin, and whatever other 'becauses' are troubling your manly dignity. Doubtless it hasn't occurred to you that I'm mortified, too. Finding you attractive is no compliment to my taste and judgement. Fate has played me any number of provoking tricks, but this beats them all."



Keri This is one of my favs of hers.

You wouldn't regret it if you did. ;) This book, and the previous book, Lord of Scoundrels, are such great reads. I have read them many times over the years.

MJ Oh, I have no doubt! come on, it was recommended by you ;) I'm already browsing after it :P

Yay! I hope you love them too. Lord of Scoundrels is a favorite of many. It's always high on the AAR Top 100 Romance books list. I enjoyed that book a lot, but The Last Hellion clicked with me even more. It's great to find two such awesome books.

MJ Quick question, there's no cheating in this series right? because I have a few of this authors books and I have a vague memory of there being cheating in one of them and after that I was a bit leery of reading anything else from her.


Catherine No, no cheating at all. I'm drawing a blank on which book by this author you read that had cheating in it. I've read most everything by her and can't recall a one. You know cheating ruins the book for me, so those occasions usually stick out for me. Perhaps it's one that I haven't read by her? Let me know if you recall the title.

Wait...I just looked at what you have listed on your shelf by her. Are you talking about the latest book by her, Silk Is For Seduction? That one had the hero trying to work up the gumption to going through with marrying his friend, when he meets the dressmaker heroine who wants to be his future duchess's dress designer.

MJ No that's not the one, that one I loved! hmm... I might be confusing her with someone else :S but that's good, now I know her books are "safe" :P


Catherine Okay. I didn't think so, since you rated it highly, but I figured I'd check. I cannot remember a single book of hers with cheating in it, so you should be safe in her hands.

So...if you plan to try these out, let me tempt you further. ;) The Carsington Brothers series is pretty great too. The second book in the series, Mr. Impossible, is one that I love.

MJ It's going on the buying list!


Catherine Yay!!!
