Lady Harriet Worthington's passions are strictly culinary. Little does she know that her new business partner, Lord Elias Westwood, and his highly sensual appetites are about to add romantic spice to her life...
After weathering one philandering husband, Lady Harriet has no desire to wed again. She is happily independent, having inherited her late husband's share of a West Indies spice company. Lord Westwood, who founded the company, is at his wit’s end. Lady Harriet has been selling off her shares to help her neighbors, until he is nearly ruined. He plots to win them back.
But Elias’s extraordinary gifts of smell and taste — so useful in judging fine spices — prove his Achilles’s heel. He cannot resist Lady Harriet's culinary creations, or her feminine charms. When she maneuvers him into masquerading as her fiancé for the Season, he never plans on falling in love…
About the Love in Disguise series: In these tales of Regency intrigue, nothing is as it seems: A street wench masquerades as a debutante to fulfill a rake’s wager; an actress pretends to be a vengeful lord’s mistress to catch a killer. A noble war hero disguises himself as a much older man to woo an on-the-shelf spinster. An independent widow forces her disapproving business partner to pretend to be her fiancé — and teach her about passion. All are daring masquerades, with love as the prize.

About the Author
Eileen Putman’s love of England’s Regency period and the Napoleonic War period has inspired research trips to Britain, Ireland, France and other countries — there being no substitute for stepping on the soil that Beau Brummell and his champagne-polished Hessians once trod.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review 'Reforming Harriet' by Eileen Putman is book four in the "Love in Disguise" series. This is the story of Lady Harriet Worthington and Elias Westwood. Harriet is a widow whose husband was a partner of Elias. Harriet now has inherited her deceased husband's shares. Harriet is actually using her part of the partnership/shares for what she feels has helping others. She works/runs a bakery had helps the neighbors. When Elias comes to her and tries to get her to sell her part of the business to him he is shocked by her running a bakery not to mention how she is giving some of the of their business to others. One Morning Elias saves Harriet from a very hands on suitor but when he goes to comfort her they are caught. Later Harriet talks to Elias about pretending to be her fiancé and before the season ends she will turn over her part of the business. Harriet thinks also this will be the perfect chance to learn about passion and to something she couldn't be to her husband. This was another great book by Ms. Putman. This has great secondary characters, funny scene and just a all around great historical romance.
