No man, gentleman or otherwise, has ever looked at Lady Edwina Bollash the way the brash, handsome man standing before her is doing now. Edwina has accepted the challenge to transform incorrigible Mick Tremore into a gentleman in just six weeks. And although the linguist is sure she can rise to the task, she isn't at all certain she won't swoon under his frankly sensuous gaze before her job is done.Mick has lived outside of London society long enough to know that appearances can be deceiving. Edwina might look all buttoned up-the perfect English lady-but there is unleashed passion existing just below her placid facade (not to mention a great pair of legs!). And as she prepares him to take his place in society, Mick prepares Edwina to take her place in his heart...and in his bed.

Oh what a Hero Mick is. *sigh.A ratcatcher. I did not know how that would work. But did it ever work for me. I even liked the end, but I get why some had issues. I was in the mood for a sweeping romance with an amazing charming heart stealing Hero and a likable heroine. And this delivered and then s...
More like 3.5 stars. The relationship between Mick and Winnie was wonderful and Mick is officially my favorite Romance hero now. But this book loses major points for the plot. The ending with the whole long-lost heir bit felt tacked on as a last minute resolution and it really took away from the sto...
