She Wants Him...
She Wants Him Not...

Lily Dawson, dubbed the Countess of Charm by the Prince Regent himself, plays the role of the courtesan flawlessly while her real purpose is spying in the service of the Crown. Her mission now is to seduce a duke to test his true loyalties. She'll do it, even though the man she really wants is Andrew Booth-Payne, Earl of Darlington—the duke's son.

Andrew is furious when he finds himself rivaling his father for Lily's attention. When he uncovers Lily's mission, Andrew is faced with impossible choices. It seems he is destined to betray either his family, his country, or the longings of his own heart...


Charming until the very end!

From the first pages of this book, it was entertaining the way Lily worked her charm. I thoroughly enjoyed the banter between Lily and Andrew. Andrew somehow expected the worst from Lily. Obviously, he was an idiot who didn't know what was in front of him.

I enjoyed Lily's resourcefulness and the proof of her training as an agent of the Crown. I loved reading about her skills to incapacitate a man who's trying to attack her, or even just to protect herself with a dagger. Her skills were definitely sexy, and I bet Andrew found it the same way.

Andrew was loyal to his parents to a fault. However, nothing would stand against his feelings for Lily...not even his parents. I liked that he valued his parents despite the secrets they kept.

I also loved reading about Lily's past. I was choked up when she was telling Andrew the horrible things she went through. She was such a strong woman and very inspirational. I applaud Andrew for wanting to comfort her instead of giving her the look of disdain that she was expecting from him. That, my friends, is what true love is.

The author really did such a great job writing a light and entertaining book. Lily was so charming, and so was Andrew. Together, they were perfect...
