With her reputation forever tarnished by a youthful indiscretion, lovely Emily Faringdon is resigned to a life of spinsterhood, until she embarks on an unusual correspondence and finds herself falling head over heels in love. Sensitive, intelligent, and high-minded, her noble pen pal seems to embody everything Emily has ever dreamed of in a man. But Simon Augustus Traherne, the mysterious Earl of Blade, is not at all what he seems. Driven by dark, smoldering passions and a tragic secret buried deep within his soul, Blade has all of London cowering at his feet, but not Emily…never Emily. For even as she surrenders to his seductive charms, she knows the real reason for his amorous suit. And she knows that she must reach the heart of this golden-eyed dragon before the avenging demons of their entwined pasts destroy the only love she has ever known...

    " Read this one for the sb-tb.com discussion, but I didn't finish it on time. Wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either. It was reminiscent of Heyer's These Old Shades. I really admired the heroine's unwavering belief in herself and in her husband, and the fact that she was faithful to who she was really engineered the happy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/14/2014

    " Emily rescues Simon from his long-plotted revenge against her family. This set of characters and plot points were hilariously terrible. However, I chose to read them as terribly hilarious, and enjoyed the book immensely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisa | 1/4/2014

    " Such a cute story! Emily is so funny and sweet, and I love that she held to her view of Simon no matter what he did or what he thought of himself - that is strength and focus. This is also very much a story about letting go and forgiveness. The inner change that Simon goes through is admirable. But I do find it ridiculously hilarious that he plotted a revenge for 23 years - that's a hella long time, dude! Who does that??? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 12/19/2013

    " Emily and her bloody hell language had me rolling on the floor. I could totally picture the scenes. Simon sure has his hands full with her! A solid historical romance story that will warm your heart and make you believe that there is that one special person out there just for you. "

    " Overall not as intriguing as some of Quick's other books, and I was a little put off by the cheesy poetry references, but it held my interest until the end. I wouldn't read it again, but it was entertaining, at the very least. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Farr | 11/15/2013

    " I laughed myself silly reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 11/8/2013

    " It was a fun read. Although both characters were a little hard to like at the beginning. She was soooo cheerful and forgiving. He was soooo bitter. I really couldn't get past his feeling touched that she was ready to kill someone to protect his reputation. All I can say is they deserve each other. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoAnn | 4/15/2013

    " I enjoyed this as I have all of Amanda Quick's books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frances Fuller | 10/15/2011

    " I just reread this and bumped it up to 5 stars. Rereading Quick is better than 99% of what I have been reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 9/29/2011

    " It was a good book. I had trouble making an emotional connection with the characters, though. They seemed to be somewhat stiff and hard to relate to. It is a clever story and I never really got bored with it. But I find myself glad it is over. I won't particularly miss Emily or Simon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 2/11/2010

    " I loved these two characters!! Emily was a true romantic and the way she interacted with Simon was just magic! It was the cutest love story and the Earl of Blade is one of my favourite male characters of Amanda Quick's. Utterly enchanting. "
