Book Blurb: When it comes to fencing, be it with words or weapons, Dulci Wycroft considers herself more than the equal of any man. Only once has she ever met her match….
Jack, Viscount Wainsbridge, is all charm and quick wit in the ballroom, but his impenetrable green eyes hint at darkness underneath. His dangerous work leaves no space for love—yet Dulci's voluptuous figure is impossibly tempting.

He's sure it won't take him long to discover if her sharp tongue can have other, more pleasurable, uses!

Review: Bronwyn Scott is one author that really gives Regency romance a good name! Dulci is not a simpering miss. She's an Incomparable, that does what she wants while remaining respectable, until Jack becomes her lover.

Then she gets involved with intrigue and then some.

The parts of the story that take place in British Guiana were the best. It was really great to see Dulci bloom once she was out of London Society.

The only part of the story that didn't sit well was the ending. I wanted more closure to the situation with Ortiz. Most of the story revolved around him, and he sort of faded into oblivion. This didn't spoil the story for me though, it just irked me a little.

Bronwyn weaved a wonderful story that mixed society and the wilds of South America. She didn't overdo it on the lovemaking scenes either. There was really more story than sex, which I find works well with historical romance.

She is one author I always look for in my monthly shipments.
