Lady Lucinda Blackwell has a secret - and a mission - and she'll do whatever it takes to see it through, even if it means tricking the only man who can help her into marriage - which she does! Afterall, as Lucy surmises, it's not like they'll have to stay married for long, because if they just refrain from consummation, their marriage can be annulled. Simple as that, that!
Lord William Summersby has decided it's time to take a bride and the woman he's decided to marry will make him the perfect wife. Lady Annabelle Forthright is proper, pretty, intelligent but unassuming, healthy... surely she'll provide him with plenty of good looking heirs. His life will be as it should be - quiet and uncomplicated. But when William finds that he has compromised a woman he's never laid eyes on before, he does what he and his family believe is the right things to do - he marries her instead, turning his well ordered life into one of chaos and intrigue. As the days pass and he gets to know his new wife better, William starts to think that maybe Lucy really is the better match for him - and she thinks to avoid the marriage bed? Not likely!
From the very first page when it grabbed hold and broke my heart, to the very last when I was left smiling from ear to ear, I absolutely enjoyed this story. The close knit Summersby family made for some great times with their teasing banter and obvious love for one another. While Lucy's plan to ensnare William was rather silly, given the time period it was also ingenious, and had me giggling from the irony of it all.
The bottom line: Sophie Barnes writes witty, romantic and sexy tales that are sure you leave you with a smile on your face, too. If you like your historical romance to be on the lighter side, but with an interesting plot and loaded with passion, then you simply must read Ms. Barnes' stories, and this series is a great place to start!
My thanks to Avon Books for providing me with a copy of this story for review. It was such a pleasure!

To the person who gave the book only one star because you claim the book was ruined for you due to a long review -- what did you think you were doing to the story by giving it only one star without having read it? You were ruining the chance that others may want to even read it now because they will think it is poorly written with only one star for its rating.
