Overview

When deception leads to desire . . .

When her stubborn sister runs off the night before her arranged marriage, Meg Lyntonhardly hesitates before donning the wedding veil and walking down the aisle herself. It's the only way to save her family from sure destitution. By the time her wealthy groom discovers he has married the wrong sister, it will be too late to annul their vows. And too late for Meg to escape her wifely duty to a man reputed to be a devil in battle and the bedroom . . .

A bride is the last thing Nicholas Hartley, Duke of Temberlay, wants. Then he sees Meg and realizes that his wedding night will be a great pleasure indeed. But aside from the agreeable business of begetting an heir, Temberlay will never change his wicked ways for a wedding vow—until he discovers Meg's deception, and decides to teach the scheming beauty how to be a proper duchess, kiss by devastating kiss . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Cornwall’s latest Regency romance (after All the Pleasures of the Season), Marguerite “Meg” Lynton immediately put herself forward when her skittish elder sister, Rose, balks at marrying Nicholas Hartley, duke of Temberlay and the so-called “wickedest rake in London.” Not only is Meg intrigued by his reputation but she also knows that, following her father’s death, their family badly needs the duke’s money. Similarly, Nicholas doesn’t care who he marries as long as his grandmother is pleased enough to save his estate from bankruptcy. He’s thrown for a loop, however, by Meg’s determination to get a child out of their match. As the two begin to fall in love, Nicholas uncovers dangerous secrets linking their pasts. Meg and Nicholas’s chemistry will draw the reader into a fast-paced novel that travels from the English countryside and London to the battle of Waterloo. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (Dec.)

    Gutsy heroine out to protect her family. Psuedo rake out to protect his family. And enough dysfunctional family members to pass around on both sides. Well written. I'd try this author again.

    Incomplete not worth the money

    This book was a disappointment because it ended abruptly with the main characters still needing to talk. It was very unbelievable that the hero was all that and could not express himself enough to explain his actions to his wife which said actions were to benefit her. The female lead really got on my last nerve with her just believeing anything anyone told her, she was so concerned about the other women but never confronting her spouse nor anyone.

    Really Fun Book

    I enjoyed reading this and I believe it is the first from Lecia Cornwall I've read. This story tells the tale of a spinster who ends up taking her sister's spot and marries a duke. I really despised some of the bad guys here - which means it is written well because it actually makes you 'feel'. The two main characters are delightful. The sister and the rest of the lead's family make you want to hit your head in exasperation. I truly liked this book. And, I will look forward to reading more of this author.

    Really good story- didn't want to put it down

    Couldn't easily put the book down and I was smiling when I finished. Really great story with a solid plot and well written characters. The mother is a bit too emotional for my liking, but both Meg and Nick are very likeable. The author had me routing for both separately and together throught the story. My only major complaint is wanting more at the end-perhaps an epilogue after the couple return home, and it might have been nice if Rose had received a bit of a dressing down after her selfish comment about stolen bridegrooms. Definitely a book worth reading. I reserve 5 stars solely for my favorite books that I re-read multiple times. This one is quite close-I widh i could give it 4 1/2 stars.

    Good book

    Overall great read. Loved the characters for the most part. Some of the conflict was a bit weak in that a simple statement from the characters could have resolved much of tye misunderstanndings, but there was great external conflict and a wonderful supporting cast to round the book out. I devoured it!

    Entertaining Read!

    Enjoyed this regency romance. Meg is a fiesty young woman and Nicholas was little harder to like. Lecia Cornwall tells their story wonderfully and kept me hooked. It was one of those books that I could not stop reading!

    If you love regency period romance, this is the book for you and you will not be bored!
