Reader Review: Very pleasant read. Good plot and fast paced. Really enjoyable. Both Julia and Paine are very likeable, esp Julia who is clever, confident and assertive with her own feelings. I haven't read other books by Ms Scott, but am now definitely on the lookout for her works!
Regency. Determined not to enter into a forced marriage, Julia could see no way out--unless she were to become a ruined woman! Notorious rake Paine Ramsden was reputed to have no qualms about seducing innocents, so maybe he would help with her...predicament.
Certainly, Paine deserved his rakish reputation, yet Julia was so achingly pure, one night with her might just ruin him! Awakening Julia's sensuality aroused unfamiliar feelings in him--was it too late to make them both respectable?

Notorious Rake, Innocent Lady
She would not be sold like a prized mare at Tattersalls! Julia Prentiss's elegantly coiffed head swivelled in dis-belief between Uncle Barnaby and Mortimer Oswalt, the lecherous old cit who had come to offer for her. She could hardly countenance the conversation that flowed around her as if she were not standing in the centre of her uncle's study listening, nor had a mind of her own and was quite capable of speaking for herself.
'I would, of course, provide a handsome bride price for your niece. Say, fifteen thousand pounds.' Mortimer Oswalt spread his hands confidently over the purple expanse of his waistcoat, which gave him the appearance of an overripe grape. He leaned back in his chair, perusing Julia with his dissipated blue eyes, still bloodshot from a night on the town.
Fifteen thousand pounds! Julia fought back a surge of inappropriate comments. How dare he offer for her in the same manner one might offer for goods on the dock or at an auction house. The force of his vile gaze made her skin clammy. She could not bear to imagine how his hands would feel against her skin. But surely there was no sense conjuring nightmares that would not come to pass.
Julia turned her frantic gaze on Uncle Barnaby. Uncle Barnaby would certainly refuse the offer in spite of how advanced the talks had become. After all, Mortimer Oswalt was not from their circles. Her uncle was Viscount Lockhart, a noted politician in the House of Lords. Oswalt was merely a London merchant. A wealthy London merchant, to be sure, but still a merchant, regardless of the fact that his annual income was at least triple theirs. The Lockhart title might not be possessed of a fortune, but they were peers and peers did...

OK, we have a really bad guy trying to get a virgin the old fashioned way - buying her. We have an innocent girl who believes that the only way to stay that way is to (first thought) go to a brothel and sell herself to the highest bidder? When she rethinks things, she decides she'd rather go to a disreputable rake to rend her maidenhead for free. He accepts the offer of course - no qualms whatsoever until afterwards when he decides that the guy, whom he knew was bad, was too bad and that what they had done wouldn't change anything for her. Hmmmm? Well, let's just say that if you can stomach the first of it, it does get better! Once our sweet?innocent? definitely naive heroine lustily takes her pleasure the second time, you can read a bit easier and more enjoyably. Despite the premise, we do get a taste of true feelings from our hero and that always improves the romance, in my book!
