LADY VARNEY’S RISQUÉ BUSINESS
Rating: 3 Cups
Lady Kitty Varney uses her smarts and her knowledge of marriage to make matches for the ton. It has helped her decrease the debt her late husband left for her to deal with.
Viscount Justin Belmont loved Kitty years ago and when she married another, it broke his heart. Now he is at her place of business asking her to help him find a wife.
Kitty is not sure she can go about finding a wife for the man she loved before she was married. But the money Justin is offering will be enough to get her out of debt. When the list is complete she realizes there are only a few women who fit his criteria and SHE is one of them. One of the stipulations is they have to spend a night with him and Kitty will have to decide if she is bold enough to go through with his ultimatum.
Lady Varney’s Risqué Business is a good read. I do wish there was more emotion between Kitty and Justin. I felt that though the two characters talked about their past, I could not get a real grasp on how they were emotionally affected then as well as how seeing each other again affected them. One of the main effects Ms. DeLand has going for her is that when it comes to sex, she knows how to write it hot, sassy, and bold.
