From powerful love to sizzling passion, Julia London always delivers an incomparable Regency reading experience. Returning to her acclaimed Cabot Stepsisters series, we meet an earl who can only be tamed by one wicked lady...

A plan born of desperation...

Once the toast of society, Grace Cabot and her sisters now await the shame of losing high status and fine luxuries upon the death of the Earl of Beckington. The dire circumstances are inevitable unless, of course, Grace's wicked plot to seduce a wealthy viscount into marriage goes off without a single hitch. But once a stolen embrace with the wrong man leads her to be discovered in the arms of Jeffrey, the Earl of Merryton, her plan takes a most unexpected--and scorching--twist.

...and altered by passion.

Governed by routine and ruled by duty, Jeffrey had no desire for a wife before he succumbed to Grace's temptation. Though his golden-haired, in-name-only bride is the definition of disorder, he can't resist wanting her in every way. But once her secrets meet his, society might consider their lives to be ruined beyond repair...while Jeffrey might just see it as a new beginning. 



Love Julia London!  Her books are great, and this was no disappointment.  
At first you think that this book will follow the traditional pattern of Historical Romance stories, but you will be surprised.
Lord Merryton is not your typical "hero".  We actually learn a lot about him, and that modern day problems were not as common back in the day.  Some problems, like anxiety, was rare and might make people consider you "mad".
Grace is so kind and very open-minded, which make her perfect for this story!  
I recommend this book for any and all Historical Romance lovers!
