*Starred Review* If Christian de Montfort, the Duke of Lexington, thinks he can slander Venetia Townsend Easterbrook's good name and get away with it, he is sadly mistaken. Although it is true that he did not specifically refer to her during a lecture on evolution delivered to the students of Harvard and Radcliffe, anyone who knows anything about British society understood it was Venetia he alluded to. Egged on by her sisters, Venetia will have her revenge, and what could be more perfect than indulging in an affair with Christian and then coldly rejecting him later? While traveling back to England aboard the ocean liner Rhodesia, Venetia, disguised as the always-veiled Baronesse von Seidlitz-Hardenberg, allows Christian to seduce her. Everything is going perfectly until Venetia realizes her plan's great weakness. With the first in a new trilogy, RITA Award winner Thomas distills superbly nuanced characters and flawlessly re-created settings worthy of Merchant and Ivory into a gracefully witty and potently passionate love story that sets a new gold standard for historical romances.
