A REPUTATION AT RISK

What woman in her right mind would say no to marrying the dashing Duke of Sedgemoor? Miss Penelope Thorne, that's who. She's known Camden Rothermere since they were children-and she also knows she'd bring nothing but scandal to his name.

Cam can hardly believe Penelope turned down his proposal. But if she wants to run off to the Continent and set the rumor mill ablaze, he can't stop her. Then her brother's dying request sends him to bring home the one woman he thought he'd finally gotten over.

The only way they'll both get back to London without their reputations in tatters is to pretend they're married during the journey. That means kissing like they mean it and even sharing a bed-until it becomes hard to tell where the game ends and true desire begins . . .

Editorial Reviews

06/30/2014
Campbell makes the Regency period pop in the appealing third Sons of Sin novel. Camden “Cam” Rothermere, Marquess of Pembridge, proposes to his lifelong friend, Penelope “Pen” Thorne. To his shock, she refuses; she’s certain he will never profess his love for her, let alone feel it, and she will not settle for anything less. The stomping of her dainty satin slipper is almost audible as she storms off. A decade later, neither has wed. Peter, Pen’s ailing brother, summons Cam to his bedside and asks him to find Pen overseas and bring her back to London. The trip is stormy on every level, since their ardor has not diminished with time, and the Atlantic smashes their ship into bits. Romantic fireworks, the constraints of custom, and witty banter are combined in this sweet and successful story. (Aug.)
