|Summary, etc.:|| "Miss Zoe Armstrong is beautiful, charming rich--and utterly unmarriageable. So, while she may be the 'ton's' most sparkling diamond, her choice of husbands looks more like a list of London's most unsavory fortune hunters. Since a true-love marriage seems impossible, Zoe has accepted--no, embraced--her role as society's most incomparable flirt and mischiefmaker...until in one reckless, vulnerable moment, her future is shattered. Stuart Rowland, the brooding Marquess of Mercer, has been part of Zoe's extended family since she was a child. As dark and cynical as Zoe is lively, Mercer has always known they would be the worst possible match...until his scapegrace brother Robert does the unthinkable, and winds up betrothed to Zoe..."--p. of cover.

For five seasons Zoë Armstrong flirted with scandal, but now her luck has finally run out. After receiving an ultimatum stipulating that she either marry a respectable man she doesn't love or be banished to Scotland, a distraught Zoë runs straight into the arms of her longtime friend Robin Rowland. Their unplanned moment of passion has an unanticipated cost, though, when the two are discovered, and both Zoë's father and Robin's brother, Stuart Rowland, the Marquess of Mercer, insist on an immediate engagement. A marriage between Zoë and Robin might have worked out, except that Zoë wants to marry for love, not friendship; Robin is hopelessly in love with his mistress, and the only person Robin's brother thinks Zoë belongs with is himself. In the latest elegantly crafted addition to her loosely connected Regency series, Carlyle's gift for exquisitely nuanced characterization, lushly sensual romance, and addictively witty writing continues to dazzle.
