The toast of the town ...

All London is at Julia Wentworth's feet—and anything she desires is hers for the asking. But the glamorous leading lady guards a shocking secret: a mystery husband whom she does not know, dares not mention ... and cannot love.

For years Damon Savage has been searching for the stranger his parents wed him to without his consent, hoping to legally free himself from matrimony's invisible chains. And he is astonished to discover his "bride" is none other than the exquisite lady he'd hoped to make his mistress! But though his wife by law, Julia will never truly be Damon's—until he conquers her fears, his formidable rivals ... and her proud, passionate, and independent heart.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Married as childrenhe was seven, and she was fourDamon, the Marquess of Savage, and Julia Hargate have gone their separate ways. With Julia's dowry, Damon has become rich and powerful; and Julia, who never wanted Damon's title anyway, has transformed herself into Mrs. Jessica Wentworth, the most celebrated actress of Regency London all men want her, and all women dream of being her. When the couple finally meet as adults and are clobbered by chemistry, Damon has to get used to loving a woman who won't give up her career, and Julia has to figure out how to integrate babies and greasepaint. The theatrical setting distinguishes Kleypas's sensuous formula romance, the first of a two-parter. The second will be about brilliant actor-manager Logan Scott, "whose powerful yet vulnerable Hamlet was legendary." Oct.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One


London,1825


She was late. Julia quickened her pace, trying to keep her skirts from dragging along the muddy ground, and at the same time shield her face from the persistent drizzle of cold autumn rain. If she didn't reach the Capital Theatre soon, her hair and clothes would be soaked. "My audition," she muttered despairingly, shouldering past the people on the broken, slippery sidewalk. A once-jaunty yellow feather drooped down from the brim of her small hat, and she pushed it back impatiently.

Today was one of the most important days of her life. If all went well, she might become part of the most successful acting company in England. However, if she failed to impress Logan Scott with her talents, she would have to return to the grimy little Daly Theatre in the Strand. The manager there, Mr. Bickerston, regarded the actresses as if they were prostitutes, turning a profit for himself by arranging for them to meet wealthy men. He was furious with Julia for refusing to associate with a lecherous old baron who had been willing to pay an exorbitant fee for the privilege of bedding her. "You'll obey my rules," Bickerston had spat at her, "or you're no longer in the company. The next time I find a man for you, you'll accept him or be damned!"

To make matters worse, Bickerston had a gambling problem, and he often couldn't pay the actors the full amount of their salaries. If Julia didn't make money soon, she wouldn't be able to afford the terrace room she had rented. And she couldn't resort to what the other actresses did, selling their sexual favors to supplement their income. For her that would never bea choice, even if she starved.

Julia sighed, her skin crawling at the thought of returning to the Strand. She had to find a better place to work. Tightening her grip on the damp sheaf of paper in her arms, she lowered her head and walked faster. All of a sudden she rammed into a hard object that nearly sent her sprawling backward. The stack of papers cascaded from her arms. Only a man's quick grab at her shoulders kept her from falling onto the muddy pavement.

"Are you all right, miss?" the man inquired, steadying her.

Julia bent to scoop up her sodden papers. To her dismay, the hem of her skirts dragged through a dirty puddle. "You should watch where you're going," she exclaimed.

"I might say the same to you, miss." The man's voice was as dry and rich as a glass of red wine. He helped her to retrieve the fallen papers, pausing to glance at them.

took them from him before he had the chance to read anything. "I'm on my way to an audition," she said crisply. "I'm very late." She began to walk past him, but he stopped her with a light touch on her shoulder.

"Which theater do you want?"

She looked up at him, blinking as a rain-laced breeze swept over her face. He was tall and wellbuilt, his wide shoulders covered with a heavy black coat. Through the veil of rain dripping from the brim of his dark hat, she could see blunt, attractive features and a pair of intense blue eyes. "I'm trying to find the Capital," she said.

"You've reached it." He indicated a nearby doorway. "That leads to the greenroom, where auditions are usually held."

"How do you know that?" she asked suspiciously.

A smile pulled at the corner of his wide, mobile mouth. "I'm a member of the company."

"Oh." She was taken aback, and a touch envious. Lucky, lucky man, to be a part of such a prestigious group.

His smile remained as he contemplated her. "If you wish, I'll show you the way."

Julia nodded and cautiously preceded him through the doorway into a quiet, dim hallway. Relieved to be out of the rain, she brushed at her damp skirts and tried to straighten them. Politely her companion waited until she removed her dripping hat and cloak, and he took them from her. "We'll leave these in a spare dressing room to dry," he said, opening a door and hanging the articles on the large brass hooks affixed to the wall. He removed his own hat and coat, and ran his fingers through his disheveled hair, trying to bring order to the short, wavy mass.

Julia smoothed her own dark hair, wishing she had a mirror to help restore her appearance.

"You look well enough," the man said, as if reading her thoughts.

For the first time, Julia smiled at him tentatively. "I was hoping for something better than that."

He shrugged. "Your looks won't matter as much as your acting skill."

    Totally unbelieveable plot and characters

    Ugh. Had to force myself to finish this one, and I'm not even sure why I did, except that then it'd be over with. Absolutely nothing that the characters did or said made any sense to me in the end. I've really enjoyed many of Kleypas's later books, but this one just did nothing for me.

    another romance set in the 1800's

    I enjoy all of Lisa Kleypas' books, but this one held a little mystery and excitement for me. I think Lisa's fans will have a good time reading this book.

    Okay book, not as good as some of her others

    This book was okay, but not as good as her other books. I'm having a hard time putting a finger on exactly what I didn't like about this books so I don't think its that I disliked anything about it. It's just that there were other books by Ms. Kleypas that I have enjoyed so much more. I just wasn't as drawn into this story as I have been by some of her other books.

    WONDERFUL BOOK!!!

    Great book - I love the story line from beginning to end. I wasn't surprised as I love all of Lisa Kleypas's books. This is one of those books that you hated to see it end. I read it in one sitting as I couldn't put it down. Loved it.

    Not Great

    I didn't like this book, but forced myself to finish it. I couldn't get into the story. Both characters were just annoying. Damon and Julia's characters have no emotions kind of dry. Julia was just annoying to the very end. And Damon wasn't very appealing either. Not Lisa best work.
    Sorry not worth it.

    good story, not her best

    I just finished this story, I liked it but as with most romance novels, the girl resists the romance to an annoying level. she resisted so much that I wished that I could jump into the story and slap her! hello, you just admitted to yourself that your in love with him, and yet your screaming for him to get out of your life?! weird. overall, it was a good book however, it wasnt the best of Kleypas. It didnt leave me with a warm fuzzy feeling at the end, like every other Kleypas book that Ive read. I say read the wallflower series, even the hard to find 'a wallflower christmas' which is the last book. also read 'dreaming of you'
