Rated 5 out of 5 by from Captivating! OMG I loved "If you Give a Rake a Ruby"! This is the first book that I read written by Shana Galen. I was really surprise by this intrigue that I could not put it down. I am so please to mention that I found her story a real delight to read. This book is the second in her “Jewels of the Ton” series. It's the story of Fallon, the Marchioness of Mystery, a Courtesan and of Warrick Fitzhugh. Fallon is a strong minded woman, impulsive, independent and like to kick everyone's ass! I liked this character because she is independent but also needs a man in her life...She is one the three Diamonds in this series and also shares a mysterious past. As for Warrick, he is the Queen's Spy; he will use seduction to obtain the trust he needs with Fallon. Having been a soldier on the battlefield, he has nightmares that cause him torments. It's a story of two independent and stubborn characters that will learn to trust each other and fall in love. Sparks will flare! High drama and sexy hot scenes! Mystery! Romance! Intrigue! Sexual intensity that keeps you reading! I loved the chemistry that Ms. Galen developed between her main characters. I love her style of writing! I recommend reading first "When You give a Duke a Diamond" the story of Juliette then this one. I can't wait to read the story of Lily, the Countess of Charm. Let yourself be carried away by her strong and fascinating characters in this funny and wonderful suspense! Ms. Galen is a great author and I highly recommend her historical romances! Thank you Nancy G.!
