Blonde, blue-eyed, beautiful, and business-minded, Lucinda Potter is not the featherbrain she appears to be. She also has no plans to wed—except for love. Her wealthy merchant father's unexpected announcement that he plans to remarry and a chance to have a London Season coincide, so Lucy decides to have some fun. When fortune hunters soon begin to annoy her, though, Lucy convinces David Kerslake-Somerford, the infamous new Earl of Wyvern, to discourage them by pretending to court her (in return for a kiss a day), knowing he's not attracted to her at all. VERDICT A notorious nobleman who needs to marry for money, a merchant's daughter who's more clever than he thinks, and a handful of characters reprised from Beverley's beloved "Rogues" novels meet in a fast-paced, rugged, swashbuckling exploit with strong ties to The Dragon's Bride (2001); with all of Beverley's trademark sensuality, humor, and flair. Beverley (Seduction in Silk) lives in England.
