Now or Never. . .

It's the last chance for Cynthia Brightly, the ton's most bewitching belle. Driven out of London by a secret scandal, she must find a grand husband at the Redmonds' house party before word of her downfall spreads all over England. Unfortunately, someone at Pennyroyal Green is already privy to the whispers of broken engagements and dueling lovers: Miles Redmond, renowned explorer and—thanks to his brother's disappearance—heir to the family's enormous fortune.

Miles set his sights on Cynthia once, at a time when the ambitious beauty thought herself too good for a second son. But now he's heir apparent, relishing his control. He strikes a bargain with her: he'll keep Cynthia's steamy secrets and help her find a husband among the guests—in exchange for a single kiss.

What could be the harm in a simple kiss? Cynthia is about to discover that it's enough to unleash fierce passion—and that Miles Redmond is most certainly like no other lover in the world.

So good! For the second time, Julie Anne Long has taken me by surprise with layered characters, subtle (and not subtle -- e.g., shooting parties and drinking games) humor, and emotion so deep that I found myself nearly sobbing at times. The moment on the bench has to be one of the most beautiful ever, still standing out to me in a way very few do, and I keep smiling as I think about Miles' internal dialogue about Cynthia's hair ("*brown hair*, her hair was *brown*").

I'm waiting for the moment that there's more interplay between the Redmonds and the Everseas (can't remember how much there was in the first of the series; I so need to go back and read one after another), but this is only the second in a series of nine (so far) so I'm holding out hope.

The most descriptive romance novel i've ever read. I was sceptical at first but it grew on me and I ended up enjoying it very much. I really liked the female character, had a lot of respect for her actions.
