"Matchless storyteller"(Romantic Times) Mary Balogh is at her spellbinding best in a new novel that features Lauren Edgeworth from One Night for Love as her heroine. The nationally bestselling author of More than a Mistress and No Man's Mistress weaves a tantalizing web of seduction, wit, and intrigue sure to delight her legions of devoted fans. Here she brings together an unlikely duo-a notorious rake and a very proper lady-who plot to scandalize society and win freedom from matrimony for them both. It was merely a partnership. Love had nothing to do with it. But then again, nothing is ever as it seems in the irresistible novels of Mary Balogh.
