About the Book:
Miss Polly Kent has no illusions about finding love. Not only is she a wallflower, but her freakish ability to read others’ emotions has led to devastating rejection time and again. When it comes to her future, she knows that a marriage of convenience, one in which she can keep her secret affliction hidden, is the only safe choice. Yet when fate throws her into the path of the ton’s wildest rake, she discovers that desire can jeopardize the most carefully laid plans…
A Rake Who Makes No Apologies for His Past
Sinjin Pelham, the Earl of Revelstoke and heir to a duke, has a reputation darker than London’s fog. His exploits have made him the envy of men and the desire of women, but behind his wild and jaded façade lies a painful secret. He knows that no woman can love the devil inside him, yet when he is accused of a ghastly crime, the only one who stands by him is a beautiful virgin, one whose wanton innocence makes him long for the one thing he cannot have…
When Good and Wicked Make Perfect
A marriage that begins with smoldering passion soon deepens into something more. All the while, a dangerous enemy lurks, waiting to strike. As Sinjin and Polly untangle the threads of mystery to clear his name, they must confront their greatest fears, risking all for their love—and their very lives.

Always Say Yes to Grace Callaway Books!
Never Say Never to an Earl is a pleasure to read. Emotional, intriguing, heart-pounding, panty-melting, breath-stealing romance. I am still reeling from this story; not because of the story alone, but also because of some of the themes introduced in the book.
I applaud Grace for writing about Bipolar Disorder in a starkly beautiful, honestly hideous way. Because next to nothing was known about this disorder in the late 1800s, the poor hero is treated a criminally insane-worse yet, he thinks there is something wrong with him. Well done, Grace, for describing the disorder in a way that brings the reader into the mind and heart of someone living with it.
I despise Sinjin's father; the lies, the deciet, the greed. My God, the man deserved a much uglier death than the one he got. No one does what he did to his own wife and son and then gets to die in his sleep, in an aside. He should have been shivved in prison!
Now, the other parts of the book were spectacular, as well. Of course I love reading about all the other characters, their families, and their current lives. I thought that giving Sinjin a heroine who can literally SEE his affliction was a wonderful way to bring depth and intensity to their relationship. As with any other Callaway book, the sex was scorching hot. I know that with every Callaway book, I'll find myself laughing, crying, panting, and flipping each page until the last.
This book did little to assuage my desire for more delicious Regency romances. As a matter of fact it has ramped up my eagerness to read Primrose and Andrew's story.
