It tickled him that The Ideal Gentleman was accused of such a rampant case of schadenfreude. But I cannot deny it opens an opportunity for me to exploit.

The Luckiest Lady in London

It is too bad that rich men do not become—or remain—rich men by rescuing genteelly destitute ladies. He enjoyed that. However, I could see myself offering a similar sum to you, for a fair return.

He had to refrain from smiling. I see your mind has already gone down one particular direction. It will be yours to do with as you wish, though I recommend putting it up for let, so that it will generate an income in addition to the annuity I will settle on you for the remainder of your life, one thousand pounds a year. Of course she would be offended and outraged.

His aim for the day, however, was not instant success, but the planting of the seed of possibility in her mind. His question took her aback. When she answered, it was almost a sputter. Or disgrace my entire family. Surely you do not think I aim to make a fallen woman out of a respectable young lady in broad daylight.

Still, it was heartening how quickly they were moving on to the practical aspects. I host two house parties a year at my country seat, each one lasting from ten days to two weeks.

I will invite you and a chaperone for you—then proceed to keep your chaperone busy. There is a reason self-respecting young ladies do not consort with gentlemen in such a manner. There are consequences.

Both of her hands gripped the handle of her parasol. But it will prevent Miss Matilda from ending up in a poorhouse, when the rest of your sisters must each scramble to keep a roof over your heads. Lady Balfour might not outlive your mother. And even if one of her daughters is willing to take in an invalid who must be looked after around the clock, do you think her husband would not object?

Desert Isle Keeper

Do you really want to count on their kindness when you can instead count on a fortune in pounds sterling and a house built to last? Lured otherwise respectable young women in difficult circumstances into prostituting themselves. And I would like to experience that fully. And the good Lord really ought to answer for why He so often chose to bestow comeliness upon the most corrupt souls.

She was rendered momentarily speechless by his gleeful embrace of his own wickedness.

The Ideal Gentleman, her arse. You will not have to endure marriage to a man you do not love. For eleven months out of the year, there will be no man around to disrupt the peace and quiet of your existence. You can travel, if you wish. You can choose to never step out of your house. Or you can spend all your waking hours in the Reading Room of the British Museum. What husband will be more generous with the pin money he offers? And what husband will, even if he is perfect otherwise, let you be your calculating and not so truly agreeable self?

With Louisa, Felix is able to act more like his true self — opportunistic, devious and, it has to be said, deliciously naughty. I loved their shared sense of humor and their teasing, which is something which I was delighted to discover continues throughout the book.

I should say at this point that although Felix and Louisa have a lot of sex — and I mean A LOT — the book is not a bonk-fest, and I think that was the right way to go. I think that pages and pages of detailed horizontal Olympics would have become boring after a while and would certainly have been detrimental to the story overall.

Naturally, the course of true love does not run smooth.

The conflicts between the couple are entirely of their own making — but so are the resolutions. Even Felix himself almost believes this golden image. But underneath is a damaged soul soothed only by public adulation. Louisa Cantwell needs to marry well to support her sisters. She does not, however, want Lord Wrenworth-though he seems inexplicably interested in her. She mistrusts his outward perfection, and the praise he garners everywhere he goes.

Still, when he is the only man to propose at the end of the London season, she reluctantly accepts. Louisa does not understand her husband's mysterious purposes, but she cannot deny the pleasure her body takes in his touch. Nor can she deny the pull this magnetic man exerts upon her.

But does she dare to fall in love with a man so full of dark secrets, any one of which could devastate her, if she were to get any closer?

Desert Isle Keeper

His mother was forced to marry his father and resented it until her dying day, taking her revenge by being cold and distant, and by giving the elder Wrenworth to believe that Felix may not have been his. A note about Steamy: His at Night.

The story started to drag a bit later. Have you ever been called a slut by a loved one for being attracted to THAT loved one or for "performing" for your loved one? Both of her hands gripped the handle of her parasol.
