OrangeReviewStarWhen a rejected suitor won't leave her alone, sharp-tongued Lady Clarissa Lindsey agrees, albeit somewhat reluctantly, to let curmudgeonly Edwin Barlow, the Earl of Blakeborough, act as her escort during the upcoming London Season. She needs protection and Edwin needs help with his social skills if he's ever to find a wife. If they can manage to get along, the arrangement just might work. And as they soon become friends, it does—until a vicious threat that neither of them can ignore sends them straight to the altar and into a new relationship that ends up better than either had in mind.
VERDICT Graced with pleasingly wrought characters who develop beautifully and a crafty villain you'll love to hate, along with clever dialog and rapier wit, this compelling, deliciously seductive story takes the classic marriage of convenience to a new level and sets the stage for the next in the series. A delectable and rewarding read. Jeffries (The Art of Sinning) lives in Cary, NC.
