The Rogue's Folly by Donna Lea Simpson

This is the type of read that one absolutely has to have when one is harassed! and I was and I needed it and it really suited the purpose.

Lady May seems like a well behaved prim young lady. She has had a tumultuous past with a mother who was the female equivalent of a libertine and a rake. Very unusual for a Regency romance with a touch of Georgette Heyer and this was what piqued my interest. The ladies are normally all very proper and this one was just not so.

May loves her life on her country property. She feels she can be herself, she can wear breeches and ride all around the countryside not being queried or curtailed but all that comes to a rather abrupt end with the appearance of Etienne, someone from her shadowy past and someone who she loves very dearly who is now injured and needs her help to just survive.

The love story of May and Etienne and how despite all odds the story ends well is a nicely told romance - with just touches of just the right amount of sexual tension to make the story worthwhile!
