Reader Review: Missy's constant pursuit of James at times was tiring. I found myself feeling sorry for him at times. When he acknowledges that he wants her in his life, something unexpected happens to prevent it. But in the end, everything works out.
Millicent "Missy" Armstrong is entering her third London Season, but not for lack of suitors. Since her debut three years ago, Missy has received twenty marriage proposals. But she is interested in only one man--her brother's best friend, James Rutherford. As a child, Missy looked up to James. As a grown up, her admiration has blossomed into the longings of a beautiful, sensuous woman--and she won't rest until James admits his love--and desire--for her. . .
James Rutherford rues the day he let his physical weaknesses get the better of him by kissing Missy. His best friend has made it clear that Missy is off limits, and though he's avoided her for three years, he hasn't forgotten the feel of her soft lips pressed against his--and it seems neither has she. For no matter how much James tries to discourage Missy, he keeps winding up in her arms, sharing heated caresses that promise the most delirious pleasure. . .

Chapter OneDevonshire, 1855
Missy quietly observed James perusing a book through the hand-span opening of the library door. An instantaneous burst of anticipation and desire collided inside her. Her breath hitched in her throat.
Consistent with his insouciant observance of societal norms, only a starchy tan linen shirt and dark green trousers graced his lean frame in casual elegance. On his feet, he wore a pair of high black Wellingtons. However, his notably absent waistcoat and neckcloth only served to magnify the aura of power and intrigue about him and enhance his charismatic appeal.
And he was alone.
With James, Thomas and Alex dogging each other's steps, the task of getting him to herself this visit had been one worthy of a spy for the Crown. Such a shame it had come to this, all the sneaking about she'd had to do.
With James constantly jaunting off to one country or the other and coming home for only snatches at a time, they had had scant contact over the past three years. He claimed it was for business but she suspected she had factored largely into his frequent and lengthy absences.
It could have just been a coincidence that his excessive travels had commenced two weeks after the incident. The kiss. She suspected it had been her impetuousness that had earned her the subsequent years of avoidance and neglect. But, it was the news of Miss Adelaide Bash's betrothal that would confirm her suspicions, providing the nail and hammer that would etch it into stone.
Part of the landed gentry, Miss Bash was pretty-though not uncommonly so. And while her family was land rich,...

Beverly Kendall is a good writer but I didn't care for this book at all. All the characters were very good except for the "hero". What a nasty piece of work he is. He treats Missy with distaste and contempt, except when he is kissing her or having sex with her. And what the heck is wrong with her?? She takes it! So what if everything is fine in the end, when you have to get through the entire story to get to the fine. I hope Ms Kendall uses her talent more wisely next go round, because she is a good writer.
