BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Mary Balogh's The Secret Mistress.

Meet the Bedwyns--six brothers and sisters--men and women of passion and privilege, daring and sensuality.

Enter their dazzling world of high society and breathtaking seduction...where each will seek love, fight temptation, and court scandal...and where Morgan Bedwyn, the willful youngest daughter, discovers that true love is a temptation no woman can--or should--resist.

Young. Ravishing. Exquisitely marriageable. From the moment he spies Lady Morgan Bedwyn across the glittering ballroom, Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn, knows he has found the perfect instrument of his revenge. But wedlock is not on the mind of the continent's most notorious rake. Nor is it of interest to the fiercely independent Lady Morgan herself...until one night of shocking intimacy erupts in a scandal that could make Gervase's vengeance all the sweeter. There is only one thing standing in his way: Morgan, who has achieved the impossible--she's melted his coolly guarded heart. For Gervase, only the marriage bed will do, but Morgan simply will not have him. Thus begins a sizzling courtship where two wary hearts are about to be undone by the most scandalous passion of all: glorious, all-consuming love.

This is one of the best of Mary Balogh's stories. Gervase is very human, motivated by revenge but he's tempered by Morgan's innocence as he comes to know her. She is related to the man Gervase blames for his banishment but she was a child when it occurred. I hesitate to say more because I don't want to give away any surprises in the way the story unfolds. As painful as I found the story to read, Mary Balogh has the ability to make me care about the characters and this is a story I'll read over and over again.

It's been a long time since a romance novel made me cry but this one did. I enjoyed the chemistry between Gervase and Morgan. He was very well done. It was really quite sad to see him hiding all his pain with that rakish cover. Morgan was too mature for her age. I realize she was supposed to be one of those old souls but it was not convincing. Gervase however, made up for the lack of believability in her personality. This one goes onto my read again later list.
