For over a year, Miss Gwendolyn Parkes and the Duke of Sowrith have corresponded. At first an error, the letters quickly became something much more, a friendship forged on like minds and perhaps the hope of something more…
Ever curious, Elizabeth, Viscountess Rocksley, has turned her curiosity to erotic pleasure. Three years a widow, she boldly employs the madam of a brothel for guidance but never had she expected her education to be conducted by a coldly handsome peer of the realm....
Cassandra Dean's characters are vivid and three dimensional. I often find myself thinking about them long after I've finished reading her stories. She writes with a true voice, one which has a unique flavour and she creates vibrant settings which transform the reader's imagination. Her often amusing scenarios force the characters to grow and evolve, and the emotions evoked are truly touching. Her story-telling ability is so encompassing, I'm unable to stop reading her work until I've reached "The End".

"[Cassandra's] work will appeal to discerning readers who demand an intelligent approach to their romance. She has a natural, sexy style that melds the classic romance structure with tautly wound suspense to produce an outstanding read. Her novels will find wide appeal with Loretta Chase lovers and Buffy fans alike - the sort of discerning and loyal audience every publisher should be targeting in these tough economic times."
"With well developed, multi-faceted characters, Cassandra Dean's work manages to meld humour and romance with a little bit of vividly tasteful lovemaking. You are drawn to the charismatic characters, who are realistic enough to be flawed and scarred. Once you pick up a Dean novel, you will never want to put it down. A compelling read that includes character development and happily ever after without being sickly sweet or trite. You will find yourself looking back and wondering what her characters might be doing now, not only the leads but the highly developed support cast. Reading the work of Cassandra Dean is time well spent!"
