Overview

Could she be the brazen lady who posed for the scandalous portrait?

Lady Elizabeth Cabot is no longer the reckless girl she once was. Now the darling of the ton, she is determined to put her past behind her. But who would have imagined that one immodest act could throw her entire world into chaos . . . and force her toward a loveless marriage? In desperation, she approaches her childhood friend, Peter Derby, with a daring plan.

Peter still remembers the wild and spirited girl who had stolen his heart. But could the rumors be true: is she the model for the scandalous painting hanging in London's most exclusive gentlemen's club? If Peter agrees to pose as her fiancé, Elizabeth has promised to reveal the whole truth.

But Peter has his own ideas about this sham "engagement" to the exquisite beauty who's always been just out of his reach—and he's willing to incite yet another scandal to make her heart truly his.

    a charming historical

    In 1846 the bets were flying as to who posed nude for the painting hanging in the gentlemen's club. Lord Peter Derby is confident he will win the wager as he believes childhood friend Lady Elizabeth Cabot is the luscious model. However, he is taken aback and sidetracked from his pursuit when she asks him to pretend to be her fiancé. He agrees, but wonders if she might be the model.

    Still he always liked Elizabeth and helped her out of situations when they were kids, but he also knows he is way below her station in life. Elizabeth wants Peter to teach her how to love a man. He agrees to help her again, but realizes he wants to be her man.

    The latest scandalous sensational Victorian romance (see In Pursuit of a Scandalous Lady) is a charming historical as Peter is confident he will win the bet, but instead wins a greater prize. The story line is fast-paced as Peter and Elizabeth fall in love with one another, but she has major doubts about him and the notorious wager. Providing delightful background is the feeding frenzy over who the model is as Gayle Callen entertains her fans with a scandalous winner.
