|Summary, etc.:||"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" --|

*Starred Review* Grace Cabot has caught the wrong man. Her plan was to trap Lord Amherst into marrying her by arranging for them to be caught in a compromising situation. Unfortunately for Grace, the man who walks into the deserted tea room and kisses her isn't the rakish and fun-loving Lord John Donovan but is, instead, his brother, Jeffrey Donovan, the forbidding and stern Earl of Merryton. The only way Jeffrey is able to get through the day is by carefully controlling the world around him. The last thing on earth he wants is a wife, especially someone as impetuous as Grace, upsetting his rigid routine. But Jeffrey knows he now has no choice but to propose to Grace. What he doesn't expect is that marrying Grace may ultimately prove to be his salvation. The second book in London's Cabot Sisters series, following The Trouble with Honor (2014), is a brilliantly executed and boldly sensual Regency historical that beautifully showcases the author's gift for writing romances with superbly nuanced characters and great emotional depth. Readers who relish tortured heroes à la Laura Kinsale's Flowers from the Storm (1992) will especially enjoy this stunning book. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
