Cynthia Brightley is a fortune hunter. She has to be - she's almost penniless, and a broken engagement has left a whiff of scandal around her. She has a final opportunity to snare a fortune during a house party at the home of the Redmonds. Miles Redmond, the host and an explorer and naturalist, is of course out of her league, but some of the other guests are possibilities...

Miles's life has been mapped out, and he expects to propose marriage to Georgiana, a suitable girl, at the end of the house party. But Cynthia Brightley seems to hold some interest to him. As he helps her to find a suitable match at the gathering, he may get more than he bargained for.

Julie Anne Long is a very good writer with an excellent style, great descriptive abilities and a real focus on emotions. She invests what is a fairly sparse plot with a great deal of interest and character. Unfortunately, the writing occasionally slips into Americanisms, but overall Like No Other Lover is a good read with a few references to her previous novels and some possible characters for future stories.
