Overview

They couldn't be more different—but there's one thing they agree on . . .

In London after a two-year exile, Lord Blakeney plans to cut a swathe through the bedchambers of the demimonde. Marriage is not on his agenda, especially to an annoying chit like Minerva Montrose, with her superior attitude and a tendency to get into trouble. And certainly the last man Minerva wants is Blake, a careless wastrel without a thought in his handsome head.

The lights and din of her debutante ball set Minerva's teeth on edge. Surely a moment's rest could do no harm . . . until Blake mistakes her for another lady, leaving Minerva'sguests to catch them in a very compromising position. To her horror, the scandal will force them to do the unthinkable: marry. Their mutual loathing blazes into unexpected passion but Blake remains distant, desperate to hide a shameful secret. Minerva's never been a woman to take things lying down, and she'll let nothing stop her from winning his trust . . . and his heart.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Neville follows 2011’s The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton with an enjoyable but somewhat familiar tale of mismatched Regency-era lovers. Ambitious Minerva Montrose plans to marry a man who will match her own personal political aspirations, but is abruptly derailed when handsome, rakish, politics-ignorant Lord Blakeney mistakes her for his mistress and fondles her in front of witnesses. The two are mutually dismayed to be forced into marriage, and Minerva becomes determined to make Blakeney into the man of her dreams, politically and romantically. The contentious courtship is standard fare and slowed at times by political chatter, but the developing romance is a pleasure to witness, with witty banter and racy love scenes. The gradual discovery of Blakeney’s secret shame is genuine and endearing, making him far more than the standard scurrilous scoundrel. Agent: Meredith Bernstein, Meredith Bernstein Literary Agency.
