This book, originally published by Cerridwen Press, took first place in the 2007 National Readers' Choice Awards in the Regency category. The current edition contains very minor changes.
Beatrice Crowell is perfectly content living in the country with her parents and her beautiful, brilliant twin sister. But when the twins' godmother offers to sponsor Beatrice and Chloe for a Season, Beatrice realizes a refusal would break their invalid mother's heart.
So off Beatrice and Chloe go to London, where Beatrice meets her godmother's son, the handsome and arrogant Marquess of Thayne. Misunderstandings and willful prejudices cause immediate sparks, and Thayne would love nothing more than to dispatch the twins straight back to the country. However, he soon discovers their presence in London is essential to the dangerous assignment he shares with their disreputable brother. He's forced to do everything in his power to make amends, including engineering a reconciliation between Chloe and the man who broke her heart.
Intrigue, misunderstandings, misjudgments, and betrayals land both Beatrice and Chloe in compromising situations with the men they love, but neither is willing to accept the proposals that would salvage their reputations, certain they were made for everything but the right reasons.
So how can two Regency gentlemen convince the stubborn young ladies they adore that they want to marry them for love rather than for honor?
