More than a decade before Henry, Lord Mandeville met his match in UNLACED, his sister, Lady Eleanor Ashton, learned what it's like TO LOVE A SCOUNDREL in this poignant prequel to the "Undone by Love" series!

"Sensual, emotional...a yummy treat for Regency fans." -- RT Book Reviews, 4 stars!

"Luscious...will keep you turning the pages until the sun comes up!" --NYTimes bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries

Frederick Stoneham is an unapologetic rake, thoroughly enjoying his position as one of London's most disreputable rogues. When his father arranges for him to wed Lady Eleanor Ashton, a well-bred marquess's daughter, he's perfectly agreeable. After all, the girl he remembers is not the type to demand his attentions or insist he abandon his mistress. But when he becomes reacquainted with his betrothed, he realizes he's made a terrible mistake--far more so than he ever imagined.

Eleanor is devastated to learn that her father has arranged for her to marry Frederick Stoneham--the wild, hellion of a boy she has secretly pined after all these years, despite his shocking reputation.

They both beg off the engagement: Eleanor because she's scared he will break her heart; Frederick because he thinks he's not worthy of her. But when they are forced to travel together to Devonshire, Frederick's true nature is revealed--and Eleanor finds herself drawn to him once more, unable to resist getting to know the man behind the carefully created facade.

Their passion in undeniable, but can Eleanor risk her heart to a rogue? Can she find Frederick worthy, when no one else ever has?

This could not have been a better story. I loved the characters, and their families and friends. Of course, his father and her mother were the disagreeable characters, but entirely necessary for the story. I've read a few of this author's other stories, and it was fun to see the good side of the disagreeable characters briefly surface. If you haven't read anything y this author yet, be prepared for amazingly full fledged characters. Her characters act like real people and grown men and women. You see the strengths and weaknesses in the characters, and how their upbringing affects them as adults. You won't find silly, simpering heroines or stiff, plastic stoic men, so if you want that, read something else. I like characters with depth, personalities all their own but formed by their circumstances, and to see these characters grow and change through their experiences. There is plenty of depth and growth here. There are a couple of sex scenes which arise from the characters' growing feelings for each other. I like that these scenes arise from genuine feelings, and you are not barraged with constant sex scenes the second the couple meet, as the trend seems to be these days. There are always plots to this author's stories.
