She’s taking charge…

Prim, proper, and thrifty, Eve Dinwoody is all business when it comes to protecting her brother’s investment. But when she agrees to control the purse strings of London’s premier pleasure garden, Harte’s Folly, she finds herself butting heads with an infuriating scoundrel who can’t be controlled.

He’s running the show…

Bawdy and bold, Asa Makepeace doesn’t have time for a penny-pinching prude like Eve. As the garden’s larger-than-life owner, he’s already dealing with self-centered sopranos and temperamental tenors. He’s not about to let an aristocratic woman boss him around … no matter how enticing she is.

But love conquers all.

In spite of her lack of theatrical experience—and her fiery clashes with Asa—Eve is determined to turn Harte’s Folly into a smashing success. But the harder she tries to manage the stubborn rake, the harder it is to ignore his seductive charm and raw magnetism. There’s no denying the smoldering fire between them—and trying to put it out would be the greatest folly of all.

    RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “Narrator Ashford McNab makes Eve and Asa’s unlikely pairing a foregone conclusion. Further, her reading gives the story’s eighteenth-century-London setting verisimilitude for contemporary listeners…it’s hard to imagine better historical romance. McNab’s greatest success is her projection of the undercurrent of longing between Eve and Asa. Her realistic delivery of their shared secrets makes the romance that much more convincing. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
