Widow Meriel Vyse is stunned speechless when someone tries to abduct her on her way to a ball. Fortunately, Quinn Raines, her secret beau, shows up to foil the attack. Unfortunately, as the two of them are struggling with her abductor, Meriel accidentally stabs Quinn with a knife.
Unbeknownst to Meriel, Quinn set up the fake abduction so he could play the hero and win her hand in marriage. But now that his plan has gone disastrously awry, can he convince her that he’s still the man for her?
A cute little novella telling us more about the woman that has captured the heart of Quinn Raines who we met in "The Pleasures of Passion". It was nice, somewhat fluffy and sweet but I was lacking some real action. This is more of a glimpse instead of a long story but I really liked it. The characters are also nice but due to the shortness of the story, they are lacking some depths. Nevertheless, this book is a nice and sweet addition to the Sinful Suitors series and if you loved the other books in this series, you will also love "A Talent for Temptation".
