When the ton’s most notorious heartbreaker…
Dangerously seductive and sinfully beautiful, Susanna Burney is society’s most sought after matchbreaker. Paid by wealthy parents to part unsuitable couples, she’s never yet failed to accomplish her mission of  diverting a groom-to-be. Until her final assignment brings her face-to-face with the man who’d once taught her
an intimate lesson in heartache…
Meets London’s most disreputable rake…
James Devlin has everything he’s always wanted: a title, a rich fianc√©e and a place in society. But the woman who’s just met his eyes across a crowded ballroom threatens it all. Not because she’d once claimed his heart, or that every sinuous swirl of her ball gown takes his breath away. But because the secrets she carries could cost him everything. To put the past to rest once and for all, Dev just might have to play Susanna at her own wicked game…
Let the seduction begin!

First Thought: I was just curious, I was worried that it was going to bad or something. Because like one says "Never just a book by its cover." But it sounded good, so I read it.

Cover: The cover is simple, but lovely with Susanne (or Caroline Carew) with all of her beauty and slight of her cleverness.

Setting: The setting is clearly in the past in London. I have always wanted to the London. Lovely setting and crystal clear of where the characters are. 

Characters: The character are third dimension and not all perfect, they are have flaws that is one of the reasons why I love this novel because of its characters. Especially, James Devlin and Susanne because they are "original" and so passionate.
Plot: If I want to be simple, I would see that this is all about a young lad with a rich fiancee and met his former wife again. But no this novel's plot is much deeper in passion and romance. This book's plot is a... what's the, that's it. Yes, just wow. 

Recommends: All fans of historical fiction and realistic romance.

Rate: ★ 5/5 STARS.
