    First off, I did not see this book as erotic or a normal read for Blushing Books! But haven't said that, it was a good story. The scandalous part was that the unmarried ladies, Liberty Barrows and Lady Charity Lansing were reading erotica based books that would have been censored by Regency standards. Dr. Robert Paterson having seen what Charity was reading, was willing to expose her unless she was willing to accept his hand in marriage. Her father, upon his death bed, made her promise to marry First off, I did not see this book as erotic or a normal read for Blushing Books! But haven't said that, it was a good story.

Her father, upon his death bed, made her promise to marry the Doctor. Betrothal made between Lady Lansing and Dr. Paterson, who wanted the status of her title, but no marriage of love. Charity was infatuated with the gardener's son, Michael Bell. This book is longer than most, and is mild in nature. It does have some mystery and suspense.

    This is a very well-written book whose characters have plenty of depth. It’s best to be aware before you read it though that there isn’t much by the way of spanking or BDSM in the story itself, although we do get to read snippets of the racy novel that the ladies of the story are reading. The only beating in the story itself is the absolute antithesis of a sexy punishment. The romance between Charity and Michael is lovely and seems so utterly doomed, first because of the difference in their stat This is a very well-written book whose characters have plenty of depth.

The only beating in the story itself is the absolute antithesis of a sexy punishment. The romance between Charity and Michael is lovely and seems so utterly doomed, first because of the difference in their statuses, and through the awful circumstances that befall both characters, that even though you know that they have to get to together in the end, there are plenty of edge-of-seat and heart-in-mouth moments before you get there.

    I had a really hard time getting into this book. It sounded wonderful in the blurb. But, I persevered and I believe that this is a good novel. Charity is an heiress waiting to discover love. Michael is less affluent and is the son of Charity’s head gardener. They both feel the instant attraction to each other. The interesting parts of the book are in the dialogue from the books that Charity is reading. Of course, if anyone knew what she was reading, they would be scandalized.

Ladies did not read that type of book! They were graphic books of sex and spanking and BDSM. Not one of my favorite books, but I am glad that I read it. 3 stars

    Overall I liked the story and really loved the dramatic ending. The characters are well rounded and its fun to have a villain to hate. I did feel that the first part of the story dragged a bit and for that reason it took me a while to get into the story. Historic story that really emphasizes how woman were really at the mercy of the men in their lives. I really loved the hero and his own story the best.
