“So you wish to be my lover, Mr. Ravenhill?” Two guileless pools of blue gazed back.
Damen gulped, shocked she’d put into words a thought he’d kept at bay since their first meeting. “No! That’s not what I… I mean, it’s not entirely… More to the point…”
He glanced around. A carriage quickly approached from the rear. Had they heard? The woman did not embrace subtlety or coy airs. He’d never considered himself easily surprised, but sometimes she said the most astounding things. Was she purposely trying to fluster him?
“Let me square away the team.” He rapped the reins, sending the horses into a trot down a side trail, hoping the distraction would give him time to collect his scattered thoughts.
She’d misconstrued his intensions; well, maybe not entirely, but he would now have to be very careful how he phrased his next question – one for which he desperately needed her agreement in order to find his brother’s assailants. He cut a quick glance toward her, while trying to determine her state of mind.
Was her little upturned nose twitching mischievously or was she deep in contemplation? He couldn’t tell. Tiny freckles scattered across her pronounced cheekbones. From the sides of her bonnet, unruly flaxen curls bounced in the breeze.
Her eyes sparkled as they traveled over his arms, across his shoulders and up his neck. With determination, he resisted falling into them.
Rebellious, Scandalous and Irredeemable
Sarah, Lady Strathford is ready for a little harmless frivolity with a man of her own age and her own appetites…surely that’s not too much to ask! After the death of her beloved husband years before Sarah is ready for an adventure… Enter the dashing, roguish – and baffling – Mr Cornelius Ravenhill.
Ravenhill, however, is not the gentleman he seems, and soon Sarah finds herself battling against the corrupt and harsh world around her as it threatens to destroy all she holds dear. The question is, will her seduction at the hands of Mr Ravenhill prove to be her saviour or her downfall?

5 ***** – Delightful story.
I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
I hadn’t had so much fun with a book in quite some time. And I didn’t know I need it that much. I laughed out loud in many scenes, which took me by surprise. I mean who would have expected to find a steampunk dildo, right? I certainly hadn’t but it made for an interesting surprise and some hilarious moments.
The author does a great job at fleshing out the characters and setting the story. The plot is engaging and you soon get pulled into the story. So here’s a fair warning – don’t start reading late at night or you’ll end up cutting off on sleeping time as I did. I simply couldn’t put it down. I had to know how the story would unfold. I won’t give any spoilers because I personally don’t like reading them. However, I can say there’s a lot going on in this book to keep you busy. Moreover, the blurb suggests there’s more to Lady Strathford than your average historical heroine. So I think it’s safe for me to say you’re in for a few surprises.
