Review
  • After being coldly and calculatingly jilted by the only man she ever loved, Amelia focuses all of her time and energy on managing her sibling's affairs. But one midnight tryst with mysterious, wealthy, half-gypsy Cam soon has Amelia rethinking her plans to become a permanent spinster. Because they are from two different social classes, they know their hope for a long-term relationship is doomed from the start, but for a chance at winning Amelia's love, Cam is more than willing to risk everything he has. Best-selling RITA Award winner Kleypas presents another wonderfully entertaining, lusciously sensual historical romance. -- Charles, John (Reviewed 10-01-2007) (Booklist, vol 104, number 3, p39)
  • Historical romance master Kleypas reintroduces Cam Rohan, the wealthy half-Gypsy first seen in 2006’s Devil in Winter , in her latest page-turning Victorian. Rohan, manager of a London gentleman’s club, decides to do a favor for the distraught Amelia Hathaway, who is scouring brothels in search of her wastrel brother, Leo. Rohan, weary of his usual diet of beautiful-but-boring lovers, is bemused by and attracted to Amelia, a staid and proper spinster, and so he sets about making a presence of himself at the ramshackle Hathaway estate, sowing sexual tension as he does. As the standoffish relationship between Rohan and Amelia evolves into romance, the reappearance of Amelia’s former suitor throws an intriguing wrench in the works. The author’s sensitivity to the prejudice endured by the Roma (Gypsies) adds a measure of grim reality that is creatively offset by Rohan’s discussion of Roma beliefs and superstitions. Kleypas’s effortless style makes for another sexy exploration of 19th-century passion and peccadilloes, riveting from start to finish. (Oct.) --Staff (Reviewed August 13, 2007) (Publishers Weekly, vol 254, issue 32, p50)
