A sexy light-hearted Regency inspired by Much Ado About Nothing

Angelique Beauchamp, the widowed Countess of Devereaux, has vowed never to re-marry. Twice burned by love, she is certain that no man will ever touch her heart again. But that doesn’t mean she can’t indulge a little—and the dashing Captain James Montgomery is as passionate as he is handsome.

After a brief but torrid affair, James tries to forget Angelique and the powerful emotions she evokes. The luscious lady was quite clear that their liaison was temporary. But for the first time, the lure of the sea isn’t powerful enough to keep him away. It’s going to take much ado to woo his reluctant lady…

My Review
I was able to get a copy of Much Ado About Jack through Netgalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca, and I am thrilled I was able to get a opportunity to read this one. This is the first time I had heard of this author, but when I noticed that it was a part of a series, a series that is based on Shakespeares plays, I was intrigued before I even picked this one up. I have always loved shakespeare, especially his comedies. But my all time favorite play is Much Ado About Nothing, and this story is slightly based upon that, with quite a few variations, but the theme is very similar. The tale is about a Captain James “Jack”, who upon meeting the heroine (Angelique), desires her from the moment he meets her and is determined more than anything to gain her trust and has quite a healthy desire for her. But what turns from a night in the sack with Angelique, turns into a fierce courtship, where Jack will have to prove himself to Angelique before he will be able to gain her trust into her heart. I did enjoy the story quite a bit, but I did have a somewhat hard time getting fully into the story, despite that I really enjoyed the setting, characters and the fun plot. There was quite a bit of dramatic flair to this story, but I found it to enhance the story more. I loved seeing the flirting game these two have going on, quite amusing and fun to read. A sexy romp of a romance, that definintely grabs your attention.  A WINNER!!!I can hardly wait until I can get my hands on the two earlier books, should be wild fun!!!
