Caroline Beauchamp has accepted a very tricky task. She must seduce Lord Hugh Stanhope, the handsome husband of her dearest friend, Mary, in order to break the hold that an infamous beauty had on the vulnerable viscount. But she also faces an even greater challenge: she must bedazzle the most renowned rake in the realm, Lord Rutledge, to keep him from making Mary his latest conquest. As she begins her juggling act of deception, Caroline knows that that letting down her guard would mean disaster. But falling in love would be even worse.

An unhappy wife asks her friend to "seduce" her husband so that he will be disentangled from a less desirable lover. Meanwhile she "seduces" the man the friend is fated to be with. Except by "seduce" the characters appear to mean "flirt with" and I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean that, making the book simultaneously more and less stupid than it sounds (incidentally I hate these plots where the characters have a "cunning plan" that is really very stupid, like "couple pretends to be engaged so they can really find other spouses" as if that would really attract anyone other than those creepy guys who only hit on taken women). Other than that this book is a fine way to kill a couple of hours if you like traditional regencies, and the price is nice and cheap.
