Lady Jenna Hamilton had gone to Paris to obtain an annulment from her runaway husband who had married her then left her. She wanted to be a free woman again. Attending a ball in Paris with friends, she encounters a darkly handsome man that makes her heart leap and he too is attracted to her. They have a passionate encounter then introduce themselves. They discover to their mutual horror that they are man and wife because Jenna had just made love with her erstwhile husband, Cole Hamilton!

I really enjoyed the pace of this book, it flowed really fast with no wasted details.

There is a really good plot in the story as well. The touches of humour easily raise a smile and the passion is deep as Cole And Jenna are passionate creatures who are attracted to each other in spite of themselves.

Cole is a master of disguise which is part of his profession as a detective. When he turns up to see jJnna with the magistrates balliffs after him, he turns up as a buxom woman with a sharp tongue much to Jenna’s amusement and also the readers!

The secondary character of Lord Thatcher is excellent as it is hard to work out if he is a friend or a foe to the couple. Jenna’s natural curiousity brings her into contact with him in his rundown castle. I like the way Jenna’s character quickly overcame the disfigurment on Lord Thatcher’s face, no missish fainting for her! She has a great strength which she puts to good use for Cole’s sake.

This is the kind of story to read curled up in a comfy chair and a couple of hours to spare as you won’t want to put it down. Full marks to Phyllis Campbell for a very entertaining read and some very memorable characters.
