For writer Jade Yeo, the Roaring Twenties are coming in with more of a purr -- until she pillories London's best-known author in a scathing review.
Sebastian Hardie is tall, dark and handsome -- and more intrigued than annoyed. Jade is irresistibly drawn to the prospect of adventure he offers. But if she succumbs to temptation, she risks losing her hard-won freedom -- and her best chance for love.

Not if he ruins her first.
