After six unsuccessful Seasons, Miss Minerva Dodger chooses spinsterhood over fortune-hungry suitors. But thanks to the Nightingale Club, she can at least enjoy one night of pleasure. At that notorious establishment, ladies don masks before choosing a lover. The sinfully handsome Duke of Ashebury is more than willing to satisfy the secretive lady's desires—and draws Minerva into an exquisite, increasingly intimate affair.
A man of remarkable talents, Ashe soon deduces that his bedmate is the unconventional Miss Dodger. Intrigued by her wit and daring, he sets out to woo her in earnest. Yet Minerva refuses to trust him. How to court a woman he has already thoroughly seduced? And how to prove that the passion unleashed in darkness is only the beginning of a lifetime's pleasure?

Lorraine Heath has brought us two characters that are catching up with each other, and soon discovering each other. All our heroine Minerva wants is to be seen, and since no one is seeing Minerva, she'll take over a mysterious persona, Lady V and discover the night. With hot verbal exchanges and closed doors Ashe and Minerva are beginning to realize what they see in each other, and finding out how they can become something more. Will Ashe see Minerva for who she really is, or will he not be able to see beyond Lady V?
With a fabulous story line that carries our characters through their tale, readers may find this read hard to put down. We just want Minerva to overcome her inhibitions and take Ashe already! Geeze, and while Ashe doubts and questions who Lady V can possibly be, he is so captivated with her that he may not be able to live without her.
