Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Precise, logical Penelope Prestwick is determined to marry a duke, and who better to make it happen than Lady Sophia Dalby, a former courtesan and aristocratic matchmaker par excellence? With the Duke of Edenham firmly in her sights, Penelope heeds Sophia's veiled hint and asks the Marquis of Iveston to feign interest in her in order to intrigue her quarry. The results, of course, are a foregone conclusion, but Penelope, for all her intelligence, doesn't quite get it. VERDICT Funny, superbly sensual, and filled with sassy wit and appealing characters, this rewarding story, the fourth in Dain's delicious "Courtesan Chronicles," will be in demand. Dain (The Courtesan's Wager) lives in North Carolina.

    his is an intriguing Regency romance

    In 1802 London, logical Lady Penelope Prestwick has decided nothing less than a duke will do for her. She has even selected her future husband though Lord Edenham is ignorant of that fact. However, the perceptive Penelope needs a super mentor if she is to succeed on her quest; she asks the incredible matchmaker and former courtesan Sophia Dalby to assist her.

    Penelope's plan, based on Sophia's insider tips to the workings of the minds of men whose quality is below the waist, is to persuade Lord Iveston to fake a courtship in order to make her duke jealous. Her scheme works perfectly except for one minor problem; Iveston has his own scheme and his kisses seem to be making his execution supersede hers.

    This is an intriguing Regency romance starring an interesting heroine whose plot works faultlessly except for one small problem; she falls in love with a Marquess. The story line is slowed down a bit by a seemingly cast out of a Cecil B. DeMille epic. However fans of the courtesan saga (see THE COURTESAN'S SECRET, THE COURTESAN'S WAGER and THE COURTESAN'S DAUGHTER) will relish the amusing antics of many of the returnees in support roles as brainy Penelope learns the perils of the heart.

    She brought tansy and poppy seeds to fiddle with. Her paws are working while she stares absentmindedly. Soon she has three small spheres. Pepperkit started having coughing fits so she fed pepperkit one of the spheres. Pepperkit fell knto a dreamless sleep and stopped coughing.
