Rating: 5 Stars
Book Blurb: A fallen woman. A most wicked plan for redemption. Venice, 1740.

Desperate, starving, Kathleen Strong makes her way to a job interview that promises a chance at proper employment...and maybe a bite to eat. Accused of "gross immorality," she's adrift after being dismissed from her governess position, despite being entirely innocent.

That innocence is precisely what a mysterious group of debauched aristocrats finds so alluring about Miss Strong. When they propose a scandalous offer that she can't refuse...she can't refuse. But if the darkly gallant Alistair Rohan, a gentleman involved in all manner of wicked deeds himself, has anything to say about it, Kathleen can escape her disrepute in another way.

Of course, the escape route looks very similar to the group's illicit proposition itself...

Review: This is a free prequel to Anne Stuart next trilogy. You can download the 36 page novella at the Harlequin eBook Store, and you should, because its 36 pages of goodness and when I say goodness I mean steamy goodness.

Kathleen Strong is just that, strong and she does what she feels she has to do to get back to England after being dismissed from her governess position for behaving immorally, even though that wasn't the case.

She ends up meeting with a group of rather immoral aristocrats that give her an offer that will see her on her way back to England. Her virginity for passage home. She handles the meeting so well. Most women from that age would have turned around and fled as fast as they could.

Without much fear, she accepts their offer, but Alistar Rohan has other plans for her. Plans that involve her virginity and marriage.

I really don't know how Stuart packed so much into so few pages, but this was one heck of a good read that leaves you literally panting for more. I can't wait for the first book in the trilogy to come out on August 1.
