Buch aus dem Jahr 1960. “I was surprised at how much I liked this story. I couldn’t resist reading about a rake that was developed in the mind of an author in 1960 – that would be 45 years ago. Although we don’t get any nitty gritty details of his level of debauchery, he was a member of the original „Hellfire“ club which was in its heyday during the middle 1700’s with its purported leader being Sir Francis Dashwood.” (Leserin) (19 Rezensionen / 4,0 Sterne), 291 Seiten noch günstig?

But Hugh ‘Beau’ Eversley is a notorious rake and every effort to catch his attention so far has been wasted. That is why Susan Fyfield’s family are shocked when she announces she is engaged to him.
Band 1 von Eversley Saga. “I really enjoyed this story. It was a typical regency romance complete with misunderstandings, dancing, and the one girl that can change a man. The unknown origin of one of the characters added a touch of mystery to the plot. The characters were well written and likable.” (Leserin) (26 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 291 Seiten noch günstig?
