Overview

A woman courting ruin...

No one would suspect prim, proper Prudence Etchingham of lusting after her best friend's brother. Nor would anyone guess that she's responsible for dozens of the best forgeries in London's antiquities markets. But if her love for Alex is doomed to fail, she must raise enough money to escape the marriage mart. She just needs one last, daring forgery to set herself up for life...

A man evading disaster...

Alex Staunton, the rich Earl of Salford, lives a charmed existence. No one knows that he's dangerously attracted to his sister's best friend. Nor has he revealed that he suffers from an ancient curse -- one that has given him everything, but prevents him from marrying the woman of his dreams. But when an enemy from his past takes an unseemly interest in Prudence's future, Alex must find a way to break the curse...or risk losing her forever.

A love they're destined for...

Every seductive encounter brings them closer together -- but their secret, smoldering desires will inevitably burn them. And when Prudence's illicit forgery collides with Alex's desperate search, more than their hearts are at stake. Can they break Alex's curse and save Prudence from her unwanted suitor? Or will their love become a weapon that will destroy them both?

Not the best of the series. I really had to force myself to keep reading. It was very slow to start with and really boring in the middle. The last 1/3 of the book was great, fast paced, great love scenes, some twists. (ljb)

I love this series and all ot the heroines. Alex had so much potential but came off rather flat in this book. Still the book is a good read just not great.

This series is beautifully written! You fall in love with each of the leading men and wish you were the leading ladies. There is adventure, romance and humor. You will find yourself up at night thinking just one more chapter. Sarah Ramsey has out done herself and I am eagerly anticipating her new release in 2014. Happy reading : )
