Book Blurb: England, 1804

Tired of being paraded before every eligible bachelor, Peony Whistleby decides it's time to find her true love—through the ancient custom of rolling naked in the dew on May Day morning. But the magic goes awry when she is caught in the act—and by an entirely unsuitable man. And yet, the way his eyes linger upon her flesh ignites a sensual craving that can only be satisfied by his touch…

Book one of the May Day Mischief duet.

Review: When you need a quick fix story to keep your attention for an hour or so, or however long it takes to read 59 pages, you want to find an Undone by Barbara Monajem.


Because she knows how to write a story that has the romance and the steamy sex and the happily ever after that you want, and she does it in such a way that you feel satisfied with the ending. Nothing is hurried.

It is hard to believe that a story this short can be this good.

You had to feel sorry for Peony. No one felt that she could find her true love and she had to resort to an ancient custom of rolling naked in the dew on May Day to see if her True Love would find her.

The only person who found her was her cousin's fiance, Sir Alexis.

What a tangled web! Especially when Peony starts to feel things for Sir Alexis and he seems to return those feelings.

There's a lot of magic afoot here and maybe even a haunted bedchamber.

The sex is just the right amount of steamy too and timed perfectly to come towards the end of the story.

A great slightly racy regency short!
