Adelaide Ward has but one goal-to obtain an offer of marriage from the respectable, if unappealing, Baron Maxwell. But it's the devilishly handsome Connor Brice who captures her imagination-and a kiss in broad daylight-in front of a dozen members of the ton. Now Adelaide must decide if the charming scoundrel who stole away her reputation might still be trusted with her heart. Because Brice is after more than Adelaide's affection: he wants revenge on the baron.

My first book by this author and I truly enjoyed it! This reminded my why I love romance novels. Give this one and try you won't be disappointed and I'm going to try another by Ms. Johnson.
This book was such a delight to read. My favorite of Alissa's so far. I am pretty sure I was smiling the whole time I was reading. I was so hoping we would get to read Connor's story and I wasn't disappointed in the least. Connor is now one of my favorite heroes from all the many books I have read. I highly recommend this book.
The characters from Ms. Johnson's Nearly a Lady appear briefly in the beginning of the story. They serve an important purpose in that they help ADELAIDE WARD decide to become engaged – NOT to the duplicitous Sir Robert Maxwell, but to CONNOR BRICE, his half brother. And a good thing she did, too. Now her sister and nephew are safe from poverty and she's found a man who truly loves her.
