This is a fascinating story of two very strong-willed people who have a smoldering attraction to each other. Jessica Trent is one of the best heroines I've come across...ever. She is a master at managing Lord Dain, one of the most feared men in Paris and England. Theirs is a clash of wits, will and passion that is brilliantly written. The dialogue is pithy and perfectly pitched with every moment between the two not to be breezed over. I loved this story and it will stay with me for quite some time. This is a must title for your shelf if you're a fan of romance, historical OR contemporary.
