Lady Diana Westover is a spirited young lady with a passion for reading, after deciding that she will write her own romance novel, Diana travels to Bath to stay with her two Aunts. Looking for inspiration for her novel and being completely inexperienced where men are concerned, she decides to seek out a man, preferably a rake. It doesn’t take long for Diana to spot the perfect specimen standing across the room. She immediately starts to study his behavior, but this is not close enough, Diana needs to get a better insight into the passion that this darkly handsome man can evoke.

Lord Adderley turns around to find himself being examined from across the room by a young lady, this completely unnerves him. So much in fact that Edmond decides to find out exactly what it is that this young woman finds so fascinating.

From their very first meeting, Lady Diana and Lord Adderley engage in explosive, scandalous banter. Diana’s behaviour infuriates Edmond intensely, so why is it that he can not get this little minx out of his mind?

The story line of this book sounded interesting and different, but I imagined it to be a run of the mill regency romance, the sort that I love to read. What a shock I had, I could not put this book down. Kiss Me Quick was absolutely fabulous, and completely refreshing with its wonderfully loveable characters and quick moving storyline. I immensely enjoyed the quirky banter between Diana and Edmond, with Diana’s shocking use of words and outrageous behaviour.

The scandalous meetings between Diana and Edmond were so thrilling. What if they had been seen? How would they explain what they were doing? I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Every character had their own realistic personality, complete with history and background and by the end of the book I felt as though I knew everyone in it. Every aspect of this book was covered magnificently. This is one of the best books that I have ever read, and I send my sincere thanks to Margaret Moore for several hours of delightful pleasure.
