Because of a foolish mistake in her youth, she’s not allowed “out” in Society until her three older sisters are wed. But while she’s trying to be good, she keeps bumping elbows—and, more distressingly, lips—with notorious rake Harry Wright. Every moment she spends with him, she risks complete ruin.
The sensual passions he stirs in her are so wrong . . . but Eliza just can’t resist Mr. Wright.

REVIEW: Miss Eliza Cade is one of four daughters. Due to an “unfortunate mistake” she made some years ago, her father has decreed that she will not have a season until all of her sisters are married. Frustrating as this is, she is resigned to her fate.
One evening at a soiree, she is inadvertently thrown together with the handsome and rakish Mr. J. Harrison (Harry) Wright. His reputation includes tales of gambling, drinking and seduction of women. Eliza finds him in a room waiting for a liaison with another woman. Harry proceeds to tease her and while she rebuffs him, she is nevertheless attracted to him.
Some time passes and they continue to run into one another and find that their attraction has not lessened at all. If anything, it has only grown and although they both have a “past,” they overcome it.
The bantering humor in this novella is absolutely delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters so much that I wanted to hug them for entertaining me so much.
