Alyssa Goodnight has written one of the most elegant stories that I have read in a long time. As the old adage goes: a picture is worth a thousand words; as in Alyssa Goodnight's case her words paint a masterpiece. Her style draws you into the time period to such a degree that you can feel the sophistication, grandeur, class, etc. I would rank Alyssa Goodnight's work with Kathleen Woodiwiss. I am honored to give this awesome book, UNLADYLIKE PURSUITS, Romance Junkie's highest honor - 5 ribbons
