A lady does not smoke cheroot. She does not ride astride. She does not fence or attend duels. She does not fire a pistol, and she never gambles at a gentlemen's club. Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried—and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she's vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she's been missing. But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss—to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston—charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile. If she's not careful, she'll break the most important rule of all—the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love . . .

Bah humbug!New author for me, thought I'd like, but man, I wasn't crazy about this book! Callie just wants to live, so she is going to break some rules! My main issue is, I didn't connect to either character. I wasn't cheering for their story. I really didn't care. I don't know if it's the writing, ...
So goodI can't believe how much I loved this book. Normally I avoid heroines that do outlandish things, but it was so believable in this story that I quite enjoyed it. I can't wait to read more.
I love historical romances but why oh why do they have to do with the aristocracy 95% of the time. And I think that frustration was there as I read this book. I was so tired of the ton. I was so tired of the rules. Ugh! I want to read something about the servants please! Wrong book at wrong time.
