�One of the finest and most delightful writers in romance.� �Mary Jo Putney

The classic traditional Regency from New York Times bestselling author, Loretta Chase, is back�

What�s a girl to do, when her father, known as Devil Desmond, is one of the most infamous rogues in all of England? Delilah Desmond is not happy. To provide for her, her father has sold his memoirs, filled with scandalous and embarrassing exploits�effectively ruining her chances for a suitable marriage, so she can support her family while saving her father from disgrace.

But it seems the manuscript is in demand by all sorts of unscrupulous persons, and preventing its publication is going to be impossible; especially now that it has been stolen. Can the hot-tempered Delilah and her very unwilling accomplice, absent-minded, bookish, Jack Langdon with his soft grey eyes and tousled hair, salvage the disaster? It appears that deceptively quiet Jack may have a core of steel�and be the one man smart and strong enough to be the hero she�d been hoping for all along.

About the Author

After a heroic attempt to be an English major forever, Loretta Chase stoically accepted her degree but kept on reading and writing. As well as working in academe, she had an enlightening if brief life in retail and a Dickensian six-month experience as a meter maid. In the course of moonlighting as a corporate video scriptwriter, she succumbed to the charm of a producer, who lured her into writing novels -- and marrying him. The union has resulted in what seems like an awful lot of books and quite a few awards, including the Romance Writers of America�s Rita. Heralded as ��the long awaited successor to Georgette Heyer� by Library Journal, Loretta Chase�s historical romance novels have been published all over the world.

Delilah is the son of a rogue charmer. She is seeking to make a great match. Well, as great of a match as she can make with a rogue father and an actress mother. Mr. Langdon is a well bred, well connected book worm. She is feisty and lively. He is distracted and reserved. It was nice to see a mix up of characteristics with a charming heroine and a bookworm hero. Plus, the scenes with Delilah's father contain probably the best written dialogue. A definite re-read.

Runs on a bit, but still redolent with the humor and intelligence that make all her books so entertaining. Copyright 1990. This is one of her out of print books just released as an ebook.

Loved this 2nd book in the series. Ms Chase’s wit makes her stories so hard to put down.
