Cold-Hearted Rake - Lisa Kleypas
And Lisa Kleypas is back! Lovely virgins who need to be rescued. Experienced rogues with rough edges and knowing ways. One needs money, and the other one has money. Then there's the absent or lapsed chaperone and the private moment that is too private and much more than a moment. I'm sure you get the picture. Well, Lisa Kleypas makes that picture steam! She crafts the words that make the yards and yards of fabric and ribbons fly and buttons simply slip from their loops. And suddenly he's having his wicked way with her and she's loving it. Kleypas makes the romance formula seem fresh and new each time she sits down to write. And this one is no exception. I strongly recommend this and the second book in the series, which I liked even better.
