Her Pride. His Pre Judice. Their Passion. As headstrong as she is beautiful, Lady Cassandra Vernham defied convention when she refused to marry the man who had compromised her. Now, estranged from her family, Cassandra struggles to make ends meet. A recent auction of her jewels has brought her a modicum of relief, but one of the most valuable lots was never paid for by the highest bidder- handsome, rakish Viscount Ambury. Cassandra needs that money badly, and not to buy a new hat. Ambury has only to look at Cassandra to begin imagining her in his bed . . . He has not settled that outstanding debt for a reason. He suspects that the expensive baubles were stolen, perhaps even by Cassandra herself. Erotic fantasies about her notwithstanding, the vixen is not to be trusted, for she has already destroyed his good friend - the man she refused to marry who later lost his life in a duel, which Ambury suspects was fought over Cassandra. But nothing is as it seems . . . As the seductive lord and the scandalous beauty are drawn together, the passion that flares between them will illuminate shocking secrets that will change both their lives forever . . . Praise for the novels of Madeline Hunter 'A sparkling gem . . . will keep you dazzled.' Fresh Fiction 'A masterpiece of wit and passion.' Booklist (starred review)

We wait a considerable long time to uncover the mysteries of Aunt Sophie's earrings, Cassandra's secret, and Gerald's animosity while being distracted by the romantic game played by Cassandra and Yates. And then all of a sudden, you've reached the end of the book and everything comes right out in the open, with new developments to boot. You don't get enough time to appreciate these developments, and are generally left unsatisfied as you close the book. There were a few juicy comments regarding 18th century society (men in particular) and how they've dictated what is right and wrong for a woman to do. But that little peek inside Yates parents' marriage was devastatingly short.

I do like that Cassandra was one of the few heroines who was successful in evading the marriage vows much longer than most. Usually the hero is often teased for getting tied down. In this case though, it's the heroine that almost got away.
