Laura Kinsale’s unique and powerfully written love stories transcend the romance genre. In this, her first new book in five years, she delivers a poignant, funny, sexy, Regency romance sure to delight her many fans and attract a whole new readership. 
Trevelyan and Callie are childhood sweethearts with a taste for adventure, until the fateful day her father discovers them embracing in the carriage house and, in a furious frenzy, drives Trevelyan away in disgrace. Nine long, lonely years later, Trevelyan returns. Callie discovers that he can still make her blood race and fill her life with excitement, but he can’t give her the one thing she wants more than anything—himself. 
For Trevelyan, Callie is a spark of light in a world of darkness and deceit. Before he can bear to say his last goodbyes, he’s determined to sweep her into one last, fateful adventure, just for the two of them.

This cover just screams romance!  This is the first book I have read by Laura Kinsale.  I had heard she has written a lot of dark books, but this promised to be lighter.  While I found the story and plot amazing, if you haven’t read Regency genre’s before, you might get a little confused at first.  The writing style and wording is alot different then stories set in modern days.  Otherwise, this book was a great read with a wonderful romance.  Two people who reunite and recapture the love and lust they once had. Laura Kinsale has sparked my interest in Regency Romance and I look forward to reading more of her books from the past and the future.  Another author I will be adding to my newly discovered authors list!

    I just bought this one on impulse over the weekend. I adore the title, and when I read the book blurb on the back, I was instantly sold! I’m so glad it is getting such good reviews… I’m looking forward to reading it. Glad you liked it.
