     From the moment Daphne, Lady Pomeroy, meets the mysterious Marquess of Hartwell at a masquerade ball, she’s determined to seduce him. The handsome, charming man cannot possibly be the cold, calculating lord who Society calls “Black Hart.” Risking everything, the lonely widow invites the elusive Hartwell to her dinner party . . . for two.

     Hartwell’s arrogant reputation is built on a lie. For he has a shameful secret that keeps him in the shadows: a stutter—his downfall since childhood. He’d rather keep his mouth shut than look the fool. But he’s shocked to discover that in Daphne’s company—and in her bed—his stutter vanishes.
     After one wanton evening together, Daphne is hurt when the lord lives up to his Black Hart name. Yet his reasons for leaving surprise even him. Now he must confess everything or risk losing Daphne forever…


My Review:

     Okay this book was fast and furious but worth the read. You have to love an manly man who has faults. Specially in the times this books are written. But we have to appreciate a woman who looks beyond the surface to the reality below.

     One thing that I'm encountering lately and it just irks me a bit is that when you are reading this books you don't feel like you are in the time implied in the book. You don't feel like you are part of the century and the customs or any of that.

     But still it was a good read. You can't take that from it.
