This is the first book I've read from this author and it won't be my last. I really enjoyed this story of Callie, an average/plain spinster & Gabriel, a handsome rake. The emotions, that was well written, immediately made me feel a connection to the characters. The plot was also very entertaining as Callie completes her list. Also, I loved every moment when Gabriel used the words 'Empress' & 'Lovely'! *sigh* I was so completely satisfied when I was done with this book. I can't wait to read more from this author.
