Using NonlinearFit/Regress?

I am trying to estimate the parameters {a,b} in the
function: x / (1 + a (x-1) + a b x (x-1)) using 

The model is known to be a CONCAVE function with 
0 < a,b < 1 and b < a.  NonlinearFit/Regress
always produces negative parameters (a discontinuous
function); even if I try to condition them to be
positive e.g., {a, 0, 1} and  {b, 0, 1}.

Any suggestions about using NonlinearFit[...] with the 
above function?
