Bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries's enticing new series introduces the spirited graduates of Mrs. Harris's School for Young Ladies — unconventional heiresses who are more than matches for society's most irresistible rogues....
"Be careful, Amelia — you know how reckless you can be!" — Mrs. Charlotte Harris, headmistress
Lady Amelia Plume has many admirers — it's too bad they're all fortune hunters and fops who can't provide the exotic adventures she seeks. But the ballrooms of Mayfair have become much more appealing since the arrival of Major Lucas Winter, an American with a dark past and a dangerous air. Lucas is brash, arrogant — and scandalously tempting. Every thrilling kiss sparks hotter desire, yet Amelia suspects that Lucas has a hidden motive in wooing her. And she intends to discover it, by any means necessary....
This is a very fun historical romance! The characters and plot are wonderful!
Lady Amelia is too smart and adventurous for her own good! When she almost gets caught in the Major’s bedroom she begins a pretense as a flirting “silly filly” so she can mislead the Major and find out more about his secrets! Major Lucas is a handsome, arrogant American who begins a false courtship of Amelia because he wants to find out about one of her relatives whom he is investigating. So begins a delicious dance with each trying to find out the other’s secrets and still keep their own desires and hearts protected!
There is a delightful scene where Lucas shows Amelia his special Mameluke sword and can’t you just image the double entendres!? Combine these conflicted characters and add in an older “Lord Pompous” who is obsessed with Lady Amelia, a kidnapping, mysterious pasts and possible revenge and you have a thoroughly engaging story. The reading flows quickly with the fast paced action and fun repartee. This is a great start to what promises to be an especially fun series.
