Description from amazon.com:
An expert in etiquette, Emma takes her pristine reputation most seriously.
But the devilish Lord Marlowe is determined to prove that some rules of proper behavior are made to be broken
Yes, this may be a bit predictable but the slow seduction of straitlaced Emma is rather fun. At first they are indifferent to each other, then they are antagonistic and then in the throes of a torrid affair. But can a woman who earns a living writing a newspaper column on her firm Victorian Etiquette beliefs really play this game?
Laura Lee Guhrke can lead us down a path where all things are possible. She can write emotional scenes where Emma struggles with the choices she makes and scenes where our hero is sometimes clueless or self centered or so understanding that we become envious of Emma.
I recommend this book to HR fans. This was my first book by this author; I will certainly read more from Laura Lee Guhrke.
