Charlotte Griffolino knows a rake when she sees one— and the man her niece longs to marry most definitely qualifies. Stuart Drake is handsome, charming—and penniless. That he is interested in more than Susan's considerable inheritance is highly unlikely. That he will be immune to Charlotte's allure is even more unlikely…
With a viscountcy in his future, Stuart expects it shouldn't be difficult to marry an heiress. Still, once he meets Charlotte, how hard will it be to charm her? Quite, actually. Now Stuart has only one option: to take revenge on her through seduction. But learning what this woman needs might only leave him hungry for more…

4 out of 5 stars
What a Woman Needs was such a great historical romance. Almost everything about this book worked for me and I just couldn't get enough of this story. The characters in this book were just wonderful in that they were all quite a mess, but that is what made them feel more real and in turn made me love them as much as I do because while Stuart and Charlotte were both a mess they weren't bad people. They were just two people trying to survive given the circumstances they found themselves in, so watching them grudging fall in love was a treat because they were really quite perfect for each other and both deserved to be happy. And talking about them falling in love I really loved the way the author developed their relationship in this book. Reading about these to going from hating each other to falling in love was quite entertaining especially with all the other things going on around them with Charlotte's niece as well as Charlotte's deceased husband's past coming back to haunt her. All of this made for quite a thrilling tale that had my full attention from start to finish. Overall, I loved this book so much and I can't recommend it enough!
