Her heart and hope long since shattered, Amethyst Dalby is content with her life as an independent woman. With wealth of her own, and no one to answer to, she is free to live as she pleases.
Until a trip to Paris throws her into contact with the one man who still has a hold over her—the bitter but still devastatingly sensual Nathan Harcourt! Living as an artist, this highborn gentleman has been brought low by scandal—and he is determined to show Amethyst that life is much more fun if you walk on the dark side....

Cover:  A pretty standard regency romance cover, but I like that it has the relevant portrait reference.

I'm a sucker for Regency romance novels.  Have been for ages.  I like to just pick one up, and be transported to another time and lose myself in a super cheesy romance.
This wasn't a favourite for me.  I felt the characters could have avoided their ten years of heartbreak if they had actually just talked to each other- which surely they would have done if they were so in love with each other.
Amy was so blinded in her men hating, and I felt she changed her mind every other page.  Her thoughts were hard to follow.
Over all, this was a cute little read, but I've read regency romance novels I've enjoyed a lot more.
3/5 stars.
