I suggest people reading it because it's fast-paced, light, and relaxing. And the heroine and the hero in the picture are gorgeous! The lovemaking was hot, though I thought it would be bett ...more

I liked the character of Alexei more than I did Jocelyn but it was still an interesting book to read.
The season's incomparable and a Viscount who might be a spy or a Prince or both end up married and hiding to protect his bride. The story moves along fairly quickly and the takes some twists at the end.

First has to due with the Heroine. Her ideals and morals where extremely hard to connection with through the book. All that is important to her is beauty, money and titles.

Second has to due with the patchy story line. The first half was difficult to get thru because of the Heroine's constant complaining , but then a few char ...more

Alexei looked down at his overstuffed chest. "Can bosoms ever be too big?"
Not real bosoms perhaps, but I think in your case..." Rand considered him thoughtfully. "No question about it: they're definately too big"
Are you sure?" Alexei studied his reflection. "I thought they were just the right size for a man of my height.”
