Overview

Lord Langley and Minerva, Lady Standon, began their faux engagement with three simple rules set down by the baron's all-too-proper (and utterly unlikely) bride-to-be.

1. No more kissing. The intoxicating kiss Langley stole from her lips still has Minerva aflutter.

2. She will not share his bed. (For if his kiss is that tempting, Minerva doesn't dare imagine what a night in Langley's embrace will do to her already addled senses.)

3. No scandals during their engagement. With the infamous Langley back in Town, there is no lack of trouble he can bring to Minerva's unblemished reputation.

Oh, the wily Lord Langley will keep his word—but that doesn't mean he won't use every rakish trick he knows to get Minerva to break her own proper rules, especially once he realizes that this convenient arrangement has led him to the only woman he's ever loved . . .

For two years the Ton assumed traitor Ellis, Baron Langley was dead. Now, he is back with plans to uncover who accused him unjustly of treason and why as the widower wants to go home to spend time with his beloved daughters after twenty-five years of loyal service to the Crown. As he climbs up a drainpipe of his house, the quintet of Nannies invade the same home occupied by Lady Minerva Sterling. While he enters her bedroom, she tosses out the army of ex's. He offers her a betrothal of convenience so she can avoid scandal and he can avoid women. She accepts but gives him three prim and proper rules that he acquiesces to. Still, as he investigates the accusations, he tries to seduce the ugly flannel off his fiancée; not realizing his adversaries give better opportunities to hold her than his seductive attempts. The latest Standon Widows Regency romance (see Mad About the Duke and How I Met My Countess) is a great suspense thriller as the disgraced hero works diligently to clear his name and to make it with the prim and proper widow. The story line is fast-paced but it is the zany cast especially the Nannies who make for an entertaining, often amusing, but always dangerous to either the heart or the body tale. Harriet Klausner

This book is OK at best, I REALLY think it is supposed to be a companion book to some other books by Elizabeth Boyle. If you have read all her other books, you MAY be able to keep up with the extensive cast of characters that are name dropped through the book. Yikes! There are at least 4 "Nannies" 2 daughters and a main Heroine as well as 2 other friends (and that is just the women! YIKES!) The story is Ok, entertaining, but it is frustrating as well because you will probably be like me and saying "why doesn't she just throw them out?" through most of the book. If you can suspend you disbelief for a while, it's a cute read. Not Ms. Boyles best.

It is a fast read, with humor and romance and a little mystery. A good read, Julia Quinn is right, it was enjoyable.
