Description

Editorial Reviews

"This book was fantastic. It was steamy, funny, romantic, and just about any other emotion you can think of..."
-Steamy Book Mama

"Ms. Hardt has a way of writing that makes me forget I'm reading a book. It's more like slipping into a world she created and getting lost for a while."
-Tiger Lily, Whipped Cream Reviews

"…It’s a very heartfelt story between Lily and Daniel and the intense love and passion they come to feel for each other."
-All Is Read

"The writing was fast paced, and HOT for an historical romance…with lots of chemistry between Daniel and Lily, and lots of fun on Lily’s part! There was the requisite drama, well played out. The characters were full of fun, laughter, mischief and of course some hot sexy!"
-Bound by Books

"Ms. Hardt creates magic…"

Synopsis

Lady Lily Jameson is thrilled to attend a house party given by the Daniel Farnsworth, the Duke of Lybrook, but not because he’s the most eligible bachelor in the peerage. Her only interest is his famous art collection, which reputedly includes a painting by her favorite artist, Jan Vermeer. Daniel, duke only by virtue of the untimely deaths of his father and older brother, wants nothing to do with his new duties. He’d rather continue his rakish ways. When he finds the lovely Lily sneaking around the property in search of his art collection, sparks fly. Despite her father’s wishes, Lily has no intention of marrying. She wants to travel the world to gain real life inspiration for her painting and writing. And what could be better worldly experience than a passionate affair with the notorious Duke of Lybrook? But circumstances may change the game and the players…and danger lurks, as well.

    I first read a review that claimed this was a "Jane Austin meets Fifty Shades of Gray." This is simply inaccurate. It is a "Jane Austin meets Sex and the City." I found my conclusion correct in the the questions left at the end. I loved Lily and can relate to her on so many levels--I only wish Lily had been a redhead, she possesses the temperament and the tongue for certain! I am an artist, musician and passionate about the Arts. I am also married to a Grammar geek and Editor. In short, nicely done! An intelligent read, amusing banter and blissful romance all in one. I love it! You have a new fan!
