Overview

To rescue her friend from a loveless marriage, a daring woman dons a disguise and finds herself captivated by a mysterious rake in this “perfect Regency romance* from award-winning author Anne Gracie.

In three years on the marriage market, Grace Merridew has never met a man whose kiss stirred her senses. So she makes plans for a life of adventure instead—to see the moon rise over the pyramids of Egypt and dance amid the marble ruins of Greece. But first she must help a friend in need...

Timid Melly Pettifer is being forced to marry Dominic Wolfe, who stands to inherit a huge estate if he weds. The Wolfes have a terrible reputation, and if there’s one thing Grace cannot stand, it’s a bully. When Melly begs for assistance in escaping her impending nuptials, Grace acts as the plain and mousy chaperone on their visit to the groom-to-be. But when they arrive nothing is as they expect, and Grace is scandalized to find herself being pursued by a big bad Wolfe...

In 1826 England, a Wolfe has returned to Wolfestone Castle where they have lived for six centuries. His arrival leads to nearby villagers in Lower Wolfestone to speculate whether he is a good or bad one. They pray that the guardian of the valley, the Gray Lady appears because if she does that means the latest Wolfe will be a good one and all will thrive. --- Three years on the marriage mart enforced Grace Merridew¿s belief that she is unworthy of love a theory her late grandfather made her believe almost twenty years ago. She decides to see the world, but before she goes on her tour she had agreed to help her friend, reticent Melly who has thrown up several times ever since she learned her father had arranged a betrothal to Lord Dominic Wolfe when she was a child. Grace dresses up as a plain companion accompanying Melly to meet her fiancé, the big bad Wolfe. Dominic does not want to marry, but his father¿s will is watertight. If he fails to marry Melly, he loses everything thus he agreed to a ¿white¿ wedding in name only. When the bride¿s party arrives, Dominic finds himself interested in the termagant companion who rips his skin with her words until he silences her with his kisses. As he falls in love, he knows if he marries for love he loses the family estate if he does not he loses his soul. --- The fourth ¿Perfect¿ Merridew Regency romance is a terrific historical tale that stars two combatants battling each other and love until both consider surrendering to their hearts' desires. Grace is a wonderful ¿Knight Errant¿ while her dragon the big bad Wolfe learns one kiss at a time what love is and soon what a family truly is. Fans will appreciate Anne Gracie¿s fabulous tale of love¿s redemption powers. --- Harriet Klausner
