Caught off guard when beautiful Henrietta Tweed arrives claiming to be his ward, Lucien Trent Blakewell, the notorious Duke of Blakewell, has no choice but to take her in, as all her former guardians are dead, and he is the last one on her late father's list. Finding her a husband is the logical plan, but Henrietta has other ideas. Once the Duke stops resisting his feelings for her, he gets some ideas of his own. A heroine who thinks she's cursed, a hero who is afraid of heights, and an upbeat plot (which includes balloon rides, among other things) sweep readers along at a lively pace in a lusciously spicy romp that is the first in the author's "The Rogues' Dynasty" series. Florida-based Grey (A Taste of Temptation) also writes as Gloria Dale Skinner.
