Eve Dinwoody, sister to the Duke of Montgomery, is protecting his investment in Hart's Folly, London's premier pleasure garden and theater. She confronts owner, Asa Makepeace at his lodgings and he isn't prepared for a buttoned up spinster to challenge him. Eve demands to be involved in the rebuilding of Hart's Folly and the clashes begin. With the clashes starts a desire between Asa and Eve. Can Asa help Eve overcome her traumatic past?
I loved the dynamic between Asa and Eve. He didn't set out to be her hero, but he ended up saving her and himself in the process. I loved how bad boy Asa tore down the prim and proper wall surrounding Eva and made her feel. Seeing her transformation and heal was wonderful. I loved he little snippets of the Duke and his housekeeper. I can't wait for that novel!
