Previously published as TOUCHED BY MAGIC
She was woman enough to tempt a saint--and lady enough to be dangerous
1816 Lady Cassandra Howard has frequented gambling hells as her father's lucky charm since childhood --but luck ran out along the way. Now, her brother intends to sell her into marriage with a wealthy, dissolute rake. Cass has done many things for her family, but this won't be one of them.
Her neighbor, "Saint" Wyatt Mannering, Earl of Merrick, has chosen a bride--one as proper and virtuous as he. But when lovely Cass attempts to trick him into marriage with seduction, he's almost tempted--except she's much too naïve to be a seductress and his conscience won't let him.
By saving her reputation, he ruins her life--and she vows never to be dependent on another man, including the earl, who is rapidly losing his halo over his ravishing new neighbor.

I have read most of this authors books. This one is one of my favorites. I loved the characters, even the immature but very spirited herione. Their passion is like no other. Throughout their difficulties, they manage to support one another and learn the real meaning of love, loyality and devotion. Truly a wonderful story. The kind of book you will want to read again.
