Review by Library Journal (2010-06-04)

Possessed of nothing more than a brashness sparked by too many years of genteel poverty and one too many escapades by her rapscallion younger brother Jack, Lady Amelia d'Orsay literally grabs Spencer Dumarque, Duke of Morland, for a waltz in order to absolve Jack's L400 debt. Spencer is quite taken aback, even as he refuses Amelia's request. There's more to this enigmatic "Duke of Midnight" than his apparent arrogance and more to this generally self-effacing miss, but the death of a friend that same night and machinations involving a horse and a gentlemen's club bring these two into each other's spheres and into a marriage that neither expected.

Verdict: Though Dare's last efforts didn't live up to the potential of her sparkling debut, Goddess of the Hunt, this trilogy-opening title displays her charming and witty style and once again will have readers laughing and crying as her wary protagonists dance around their weaknesses to reveal mutual passion and trust. (Twice Tempted by a Rogue [ISBN 978-0-345-51887-3] is due in July and Three Nights with a Scoundrel [ISBN 978-0-345-51889-7] in August.)-Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
