The hero is a jerk but he can also be a charmer which makes for a fairly entertaining read. The heroine is also not necessarily a damsel in distress just world weary and resigned about her place in the world.

My first Anne Stuart and it certainly won't be my last. I haven't read any of her RS and I'm not sure how this type of hero would work for me in a more modern setting, but I did love Francis here.

This one turned into a very enjoyable read, with 2 well-matched and interesting main characters and a really sweet secondary romance. The "Heavenly Host" stuff was mostly hype, though, and the orgies were a lot more talk than action.Not sure about the cover - the "I'm too sexy for my dress" babe on ...
