Origins: Publisher for Review

Format: Softcover

Blurb:She’s pretty enough to be popular, and Lord knows she’s rich enough for it. But what society loves best about Gwen Maudsley is how very, very nice she is. So when a cad jilts her at the altar—again—an outraged London bays for blood. Only Gwen has a different plan. If nice no longer works for her, then it’s time to learn to be naughty. Happily, she knows the perfect tutor, Alexander Ramsey, her late brother’s best friend and a notorious rogue.

Unbeknownst to Gwen, Alex’s aloof demeanor veils a very personal interest in her. He has no desire to see her change, nor to tempt himself with her presence when his own secrets make any future between them impossible. But amidst the glittering temptations of Parisian nights, Alex’s past and Gwen’s wildness enter a collision course. As their friendship gives way to something hotter, darker, and altogether more dangerous, Gwen must convince Alex that his wickedest intentions are exactly what she needs...

Review in 5: Cute, Passionate, Adorable, Endearing, Fun

Review: Reading this book is a ton of fun. It's really all about a women learning how to be herself in a world where she was trained to hide everything she wants as a person and as a women. I love the whole premise of the book. There are tons of great scenes and cultural reference from some of my favorite things, Anne Boleyn, the Moulin Rouge, Paris. This book is a super fun ride, I was happy to just be hanging out enjoying Gwen's fun.

The characters are pretty unique, which is hard to do in a historical romance novel. The plot moved along at an acceptable pace and the dialog was pretty funny. I laughed out loud more than a few times. I enjoyed this book, I want to see what else Meredith Durgan has written that I haven't read yet.
