David, Viscount Fairly, has imperiled his honor...
Letty Banks is a reluctant courtesan, keeping a terrible secret that brought her, a vicar's daughter, to a life of vice. While becoming madam of Viscount Fairly's high-class brothel is an absolute financial necessity, Letty refuses to become David's mistress-though their attraction becomes harder to resist the more she learns about the man...
Perhaps a fallen woman can redeem it.
David is smitten not only with Letty's beauty, but also with her calm, her kindness, her quiet. David is determined to put respectability back in her grasp, even if that means uncovering the secrets Letty works so hard to keep hidden-secrets that could take her away from him forever...
Intro Babble: I am a slacking slacker who slacks. Sort of. Family issues have caused a giant reading and reviewing slump for a little over 4 months. I have tried to get over it by reading old favorites, classics, new books...everything. Nothing has worked. Nothing. I am in a state of "WHY?! Oh Why?!"
Heroine: Letty-She is one of the most immediately likable heroines I have ever come across. It was easy to relate to her. I was surprised that she was one of the quieter and more demure heroine given that she was a madam.
Hero: David-He was less rakish than I thought he would be. He was sweet, kind and protective. He still had a bit of grit to him but nothing close to what I thought originally. He also loved Letty to bit which only served to make me like him more. This book is worth picking up for both of the main characters alone because they are lovely.
Chemistry: This one definitely started slow. It was a slow burn. It won't overwhelm you at the start but it very slowly builds. The pacing was excellent in terms of chemistry. It wasn't instalove but it also wasn't so slowly paced that it put you to sleep. And Letty and David did have excellent chemistry. I loved that David was the one in pursuit for much of the book.
Ending Babble: I loved the pacing of this book. It was just so perfect. It wasn't fast by any means but it wasn't a snail's pace either. It was just right. There was some angst and drama at the end. It kind of kicks you in the face because you can sort of see it coming but you don't know when. It's just so...perfect.
