I really enjoyed the book, but not really the narrator. I've got used to her, but some things really bothered me: when she ended sentences in a whisper/lowering her voice. Maybe it was intended to sound mysterious. Every chapter number was announced with somewhat of a happy tone/ more animated.
Cecily, the daughter of a self made merchant, has just become a Countess and it was a love match to boot - or so she thought. As it turns out, the Earl married her not for love but her one hundred thousand pound dowry, and is not only engaging in affairs but openly flaunting it. Not at all pleased by this, Cecily and her friends of plans to get her freedom from idle plots of killing him to more reasonable ones than to seduce another man while denying her husband.
Enter Stephen, the Earl's cousin.
This book is everything a historical romance should be with strong characters you can either call in love with or love to hate, an interesting plot with a bit of mystery and enough twists to make it interesting, and just enough steamy scenes.
