Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas (2001)
Description: She was unmarried, untouched and almost thirty, but novelist Amanda Briars wasn't about to greet her next birthday without making love to a man. When he appeared at her door, she believed he was her gift to herself, hired for one night of passion Unforgettably handsome, irresistibly virile, he tempted her in ways she never though posible... but something stopped him from completely fulfilling her dream.
Jack Devlin's desire to possess Amanda became greater when she discovered his true identity. But gently-bred Amanda craved respectability more than she admitted, while Jack, the cast-off son of a noblemen and London's most notorious businessman, refused to live by society's rules. Yet their worlds collided with a passionate force neither had expected... but both soon craved.
Review: If I had to sum this book up with one word, it would be steamy. Whew! Instanly Amanda and Jack were attracted to each other. It was fun to watch them interact in public and finally their eventual affair. It was obvious these two needed each other but their pasts and certain events nearly tore them apart. I was on the edge of my chair to see what would happen between them. I would most definitely recommend this book.
Score: 4.5 out of 5
