by Amy L. Turpin
Charlotte or Madam Charlie as she was now known, Countess of Calverton and widow of the Sixth Earl knew she was in trouble. The new Earl, Colonel Jordan Lyndhurst, was in town and doubtless he would not be pleased to learn that the Dowager Countess now owned a "house of ill-repute."
To say nothing of the fact that it was highly probable that she had murdered her husband.
Jordan knew nothing about the enigmatic woman running the place, only that he felt drawn to her as he had never been drawn to another woman before. Fortunately, he loved puzzles and Charlie was one puzzle he intended to master.
After an unpleasant encounter with a customer who liked to hurt her girls, Charlie found herself whisked away to the handsome Earl's London home where he was intent on protecting her, and learning her secrets. ALL her secrets. And the bliss they both discovered there was immeasurable.
It didn't take long for Jordan to discover he had finally met his own Waterloo. Ah, but surrender was never so sweet. In love with Charlie, he was determined that his submission would not be for nothing. He intended to have Charlie, now and forever. But her past and her present could prevent the relationship he yearns for. But then again, Jordan always did love a challenge . . .
What a wonderful tale! Although not laced with as much humor as I've come to expect from Ms. Kelly, I fell in love with her characters instantly. Jordan and Charlie were well suited and I sincerely hope to read more about Jordan's friends Elizabeth and Spencer.

Does it get any better than this?? Ms. Kelly has proven with this book that the Regency is her time to shine. Charlie and Jordan Lyndhurst are two fiery, passionate characters and their story is a sexy, emotional ride. This author shows her knowledge of this time period and shows the reader a few things about it we didn't know also. After a horrible marriage and a disastrous, fatal fire that she thinks she caused, Charlie disappears into a brothel that she runs quite successfully, though never participates with the clients. Jordan Lyndhurst finds Charlie in this setting and is immediately smitten with her, and soon finds he is unable to "buy" her favors. Unable to leave her alone he finds her in a situation where she is in need of protection and he rescues her. What follows is one of the most passionate stories I have ever read. Ms. Kelly is an excellent storyteller and she captures the characters and the fire between them. Her sex scenes with these two absolutely singe the pages and I can't wait for Spencer and Elizabeth's story it promises to bring more great reading. If you can I would buy anything you can find by this fabulous author.
