Poised to become Mayfair’s most expensive and exclusive courtesan, Miss Miranda Jones finds her rise inexplicably blocked by a socially powerful nobleman. Scorned by her ducal father and determined to attain everything that life has denied her due to an accident of birth, she’s not about to let this arrogant earl stop her.
Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers, saw his father destroyed by a heartless, predatory courtesan. He has no time or patience for such exotic, expensive ladybirds. He’s far too busy restoring his family’s wealth and reputation whilst doing what he can to protect his friends from the clutches of all the scheming courtesans of London.
Then a moment of compassion turns intense dislike to breathless passion, and these two strong-willed, fiercely proud people are compelled to indulge in a brief affair. Each is convinced that they can satisfy their craving for the other without emotional risk.
But neither realizes that a little dalliance can be a dangerous thing.

This book tells the story of a Courtesan, Miranda has come to terms with the life she leads. she does it to provide for her mother. but when a man from her mothers past comes calling she finds she will do anything to protect her.
Adrian, doesnt like what Miranda does for a living after his uncle was ruined by one, left to rebuild his life after he was left penniless.
against all the odds they both find they have a strong attraction for each other, and this makes the need to keep a distance even harder.
the pair have a great deal to over come before romance can be a factor in there life.
Another great read by Natasha Blackthorne. Really well written. Its a creative book that's filled with conflict,passion and romance with a little bit sexual heat to warm you to your bones. If shits book doesn't leave flutters in your tummy then I don't know what will. Natasha never fails to grab my attention with her books. I really hope it will become paperback so I can add it to my shelf of wonders.
RATING 5 LIPS
