Wearing nothing but a man's nightshirt Fleur Monley woke to find herself in the bed of England's most charming and reckless libertine But it was a stray gunshot not passion that put her at the mercy of a man as infamously handsome as he was famously talented in the arts of love Believing herself immune t I tried but reading about two idiots setting each up for pain and suffering by failing to communicate doesn't really work for me The tension isn't about seeing them fall in love but rather waiting for them to hurt each other and that's not entertaining—that's exhausting
