Lou's begins an assignation with Mac but her heart's not quite in it just yet, even though Mac seems to fall for Lou, fast and hard. This book would make Jane Austen blush! Strong prose and characterization go a long way with her, though if they are combined with an unusual plot or setting, all the better. I felt bad for Lou when she found out what a scum bucket he was. The book is told from m On paper, Hidden Paradise sounds like a book that I would love. What did these kids get up to? He would definitely go to the top of my list of bastard characters, if I had one.

Liveried servants tend to every need of houseguests clad in meticulous period costume: snug breeches, low-cut silken gowns and negligible undergarments. It seemed unrealistic for him to have such strong feelings for Lou so early on considering that they spent so little time alone together outside the bedroom. From the moment I read this book's synopsis I knew I was in for something unexpected. I applaud his loyalty to his family and the seriousness by which he treats the sexual encounters. Lou has quite the voyeuristic first encounter with Mac and they soon find themselves pleasuring each other.
It was definitely a more refined time than what we are living in now. I was really surprised there was some girl on girl with Mac at one point. The main female character Lou starts off as a new widow, and I found it too painful to imagine myself in a similar predicament. He had the local accent, that soft burr, and the address he gave on the application was in the new part of the village—tacky little houses crammed together—not the historic, older part.

To help break the monotony of her grief, her two friends, Phillip and Chris, invite her to Paradise Hall in England, where re-enactments of Austen's time take place Having read and enjoyed Janet Mullany's regency set historical romantic comedies, I was intrigued to see she'd written a contemporary romantic novel with erotic undertones for Harlequin.
It seemed like men to her were merely a substitute for her dead husband. Chris and Peter are renovating a Georgian home rumored to be where Jane Austen once stayed , and urge her to join them make a first run of the place, utilizing her historical know how-to make sure things are accurate to the time period. But once I read past that chapter, I found the characters of Mac and Lou as a couple weren't appealing. After an out of the blue revelation about her dead husband she runs back home to completely purge herself of the past and it's then that she opens her heart to the possibilities Mac offers, if only she can decide what to do with Rob who's come home with her. However, her friends Peter and Chris invite her out to England to check out their project. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Darcy, with the libido to match those dreams.
