Description from book:

A woman of modest means meets a society man skilled in the art of seduction in this captivating new novel from New York Times bestselling author – Lisa Kleypas.

Their lives defy convention.

When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

Their desire consumes them both . . .

Wealthy beyond most men’s dreams, Cam has tired of society’s petty restrictions and longs to return to his “uncivilized” Gypsy roots. When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship – but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. but can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into that most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter . . .

My Thoughts:

I was intrigued by Cam when he initially appeared in Devil in Winteras the manager of Jenner’s Club. I remember when he kissed Daisy – and have hoped from that point on that he would find his own love. I’m not sure that in my wildest imagination I could have come up with Amelia Hathaway and her family. They are quite an interesting, but lovable lot. There is Win, the sickly sister, who loves a Gypsy man who has lived with the Hathaways for several years (I hope Merripen and Win get their own story). Then, there is Beatrix who can’t stop stealing. Neither come close to Leo who really seems to be death walking. Amelia has much more to deal with than most.

Of course, she still battles to keep her independence. Amelia hates to accept help from anyone – the Westcliff’s or Cam. However, Cam can’t really be ignored. Cam is desperately looking for something – and it takes him a while to realize that Amelia is what he needs. Amelia resists, but does finally come to acknowledge her love for Cam. I thought this story was wonderful. I loved all of the characters – and hope to see more of Amelia’s sisters.
