Against the scandal and seduction of Regency England, New York Times best-selling author Mary Balogh introduces an extraordinary family - the fiery, sensual Huxtables. Vanessa is the second daughter, proud and daring, a young widow who has her own reason for pursuing the most eligible bachelor in London. One that has nothing to do with love. Or does it?

The arrival of Elliott Wallace, the irresistibly eligible Viscount Lyngate, has thrown the country village of Throckbridge into a tizzy. Desperate to rescue her eldest sister from a loveless union, Vanessa Huxtable Dew offers herself instead. In need of a wife, Elliott takes the audacious widow up on her unconventional proposal while he pursues an urgent mission of his own. But a strange thing happens on the way to the wedding night. Two strangers with absolutely nothing in common can't keep their hands off each other. Now, as intrigue swirls around a past secret - one with a stunning connection to the Huxtables - Elliott and Vanessa are uncovering the glorious pleasures of the marriage bed...and discovering that when it comes to wedded bliss, love can't be far behind.

    " It's funny. When you're reading a book where the main characters, and especially the couple, have obstacles to face that seem to go on to the point where you just want them to get past whatever it is and get together already! you think that you wish things were not so dire. But this book proved to me that you only *think* you want that, because it's the difficulties that make the story interesting. As frustrating as it is when characters don't communicate or speak up and misunderstandings keep people apart, that frustration is part of your investment in the story. This book avoids all those frustrations and as a result, stirs up little passion for the characters in the reader. It wasn't bad, nor a total loss. The writing is pretty good, and I admit I'm intrigued by what may happen to some of the other characters who were introduced (this being the first book of a series). "

    " This story was good, but I was put off by the constant reference to how ugly the heroine was thought by almost everyone, including the hero. Only her sister and brother tell her she is pretty. Then, miraculously and with no explanation, the hero has a change of heart and decides she is at first pretty and then beautiful after all. If he thought she was merely plain then I might believe it more. "

    " I read this in one day liked it a lot. Got to get a good romance novel in every once in a while. "

    " for me, it was enjoyable, however, this book lacked a proper climax. it had it's moments, but I was waiting for something bigger, but it never came. "
