Lady Francine is desperate for a way out from under her aunt’s thumb and she figures a fake engagement to an unacceptable gentleman should do the trick - at least until Francine reaches her majority.  Francine settles for the most unacceptable Lord Blakely, who is known for his outlandish and outrageous reputation.  Lord Blakely has secrets of his own that might hinder Francine’s plans, but he can’t make himself resist her.  Will the charade become real or will they go their separate ways after a brief affair?

Ensnared by Innocence is an unusual historical romance as the characters and their actions fairly scream twenty-first century attitudes while they live in Regency England.  And while Francine and Lord Blakely are both witty and entertaining, I found them hard to relate to as I just couldn’t reconcile their behavior with the setting of the story.  Also, there is a ménage scene that, in my opinion, served no purpose in developing the storyline and made the subsequent actions by the characters unbelievable.  All in all, Ensnared by Innocence was an unremarkable read that left the romantic in me feeling unmoved.
