I cannot say a bad thing about any of her books and this one ranks top too. Lady Penelope loves animals Her love of animals leads her into a rather sexy introduction to our hero Gabriel Duke. Gabriel has dragged himself from the gutters of London and he has become what we would consider today a real estate mogul.
But he also takes pleasure in bringing the hated aristocracy to their knees financially. When he meets Penny he presents as very hard and serious, but he has a soft side that he has kept hidden for fear of vulnerability. I loved the romance between Penny and Gabe. I was in stitches. And the steam factor was off the charts. They truly had odds to overcome but you as the reader are pulling for them hard. Tessa Dare has a way with words and her stories flow fast. I read this in one sitting and my attention was glued to my IPAD.
Her use of dialogue makes the story come to life and develops the characters magnificently. My only real complaint, if you can call it that, is I wish the Epilogue was longer and more in depth. I wanted to hear about some babies.
Readers, so far the historical romance writers are coming out fully loaded and ready with some awesome books this summer. View all 8 comments.

Guess who did it again? That's Who. You know the one thing I love about her books is that they're feel good, don't take themselves too seriously with the perfect amount of romance, passion and emotion. Her men are It's not like them old highland novels where all the men are just like grunt and point.
Her men have humor which is honestly all I can ask for when using the same formula for all your heroes. Her heroines on the other hand, are what MAKE all the novels. I love how she definitely improved here from the Governess Game. The last book in the series was rushed and I was annoyed on how she completely brushed over the heroine's hobbies and career. It was supposedly a big part of her life but wasn't even discussed. Here I absolutely loved Penelope and her dedication to animals, and how aware of herself.
Not gonna lie, Gabriel wasn't that special, however they had wonderful chemistry and he was so so sweet and funny. I loved the humor, I definitely laughed out loud several times. The sex. The plot was cute and fun, and not too heavy. Now if you're looking for a realistic historical, lol you won't find it here. The year is The audience is mostly middle aged women with MANY sexual fantasies lmao. Therefore, if you're looking for a realistic, very non-independent, non-sexually empowered victorian heroine, you will most definitely not find it here.
Read the book, read all her books, know what you're signing up for and don't take it too seriously!! That's all folks! View all 4 comments.
Aug 16, JenReadsRomance rated it it was ok. Enter at your own risk. This is really rough and I will probably continue to edit at will. So forewarned is forearmed. These are first thoughts.
As always, there is some delightful banter and if that's your jam, then that will be pleasing in this book. Penny is a likable heroine, of course!
