The Captain's Bluestocking Mistress - Erica Ridley

Captain Xavier Grey’s body is back amongst the Beau Monde, but his mind cannot break free from the horrors of war. His friends try to help him find peace. He knows he doesn’t deserve it. Just like he doesn't deserve the attentions of the sultry bluestocking intent on seducing him into bed...

Spinster Jane Downing wants off the shelf and into the arms of a hot-blooded man. Specifically, the dark and dangerous Captain Grey. She may not be destined to be his wife, but nothing will stop her from being his mistress. She could quote classical Greek by the age of four. How hard can it be to learn the language of love? 

My thoughts:
This was a really sweet romance, and hey, I do like sweet.

We have Jane who loves books, and she is happy being on the shelf, but....she is curious, and she does want people to notice her. Poor Jane, people really do not see her at all.

Xavier is broken and messed up from war. But that was then, now he just wants to move on.

Aww, this book was sweet and funny. Jane wants to try smexy times and trust me, Xavier does not stand a chance. She is out to seduce him, and he will try to say no. But omg, she was so funny, so frank, so out of her league since she really only knew things from books. It was so funny to read about.

Oh and there was this speech...awwwwwww.

I have like two in this series already, good series then.

Conclusion:
Funny and romantic.

I agree with the feelings of "offness" about that cover. The model looks like she's 12, and that pose does not look comfortable at all.

I have a couple of hers I think but not read them. The covers are always so awkward.
