Overview

Isabella is determined to marry James...

Isabella Weston has loved James Sheffield for as long as she can remember. Her come-out ball seems the perfect chance to make him see her in a new light.

James is determined never to marry...

James is stunned to find that the impish girl he once knew has blossomed into a sensual goddess. And if he remember his lessons correctly, goddesses always spell trouble for mortal men.

A compromise is clearly necessary...

When Izzie kisses James, her artless ardor turns to a masterful seduction that drives him mad with desire. But, no stranger to heartbreak, James is determined never to love, and thus never to lose. Can Isabella convince him that a life without love might be the biggest loss of all?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fans of Julia Quinn will find much that is familiar and enjoyable in Lindsey's debut 1790s romance, the first book of the Weston family saga. Isabella Weston is finally out and in pursuit of her older brother's best friend, James Sheffield. Orphaned at age 10 and raised by a chilly grandfather, young James believed he was incapable of love. As Izzie schemes to persuade James that love is not a weakness, her six siblings, all named after Shakespearean characters, demonstrate their dramatic flair and knack for falling into improper situations. Despite this all too familiar plot, Izzie and her siblings are entertaining as they teach James about the love of a family, friends, and a very determined wife. (Feb.)
Library Journal
By the time she was six, Isabella Weston knew she was going to marry James Sheffield, her brother's best friend. When she was 19, enchantingly lovely, and intrepid to a fault, she launched her attack. One night was all she needed to seal his fate, but it took the stubborn, love-wary James a lot longer to find the courage to risk everything and finally give his heart. VERDICT Skillful, descriptive writing, engaging protagonists who eventually mature nicely, steamy sensuality, a wealth of interesting secondary characters, and snippets of Izzie's sometimes hilarious correspondence put a delightful spin on a classic plot that is a marvelous debut and perfect introduction to a promising series about the Weston siblings. Lindsey lives in Los Angeles.
