Miss Eliza Cade is a lady in waiting. And waiting.
Because of a foolish mistake in her youth, she's not allowed "out" in Society until her three older sisters are wed. But while she's trying to be good, she keeps bumping elbows—and, more distressingly, lips—with notorious rake Harry Wright. Every moment she spends with him, she risks complete ruin.
The sensual passions he stirs in her are so wrong . . . but Eliza just can't resist Mr. Wright.
My rating: 5/5
Tessa Dare is a magnificent author, one of my favorites, and she's done it again. The Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr. Wright is a FANTASTIC book. I can't even tell you how much I adored it!
Eliza was a heroine with a lot of spirit. But it's been trapped because of a mistake made in her youth. However, when Mr. Wright shows up, it all comes bursting out. And seeing it happen was very entertaining. Eliza was wonderful, a heroine that anyone can love.
Harry was just as much fun. As with Eliza, he has a lot of spirit, though he's never had to hide it. Though he's originally shown as care-free and shallow, we get to see his other side soon after. He's sweet, kind, and just absolutely amazing. He's definitely on my list of favorite heroes.
The plot of this books spans a few years, from when Eliza and Harry first meet, to when they get their happily-ever after. It was so much fun to see their relationship slowly develop and grow. Despite the short length, the characterization still retains depth, not just for the main characters, but for the others as well.
And the ending was so sweet. It had me laughing and smiling and a little sad that such a lovely novella was over.
ANY romance lover should read this book. It is MAGNIFICENT!
