Publisher's Summary

Setting: Regency England

Sensuality: Warm (7)

Grace Clarke is no longer willing to accept the position of "poor relations". Her sister has married well and taken her under her wing, so with her new connections, it ought to be a breeze to find a wealthy, titled gentleman to help elevate her station in life. Of course she never expects him to find her. Especially not in such a compromising position. But once she gets over her humiliation, she discovers that the duke next door is far more than just a duke. He's a man who sets her heart--and other parts of her--aflame.

Evan Gilford, Duke of Somerset, has spent the last 15 years trying to avoid his destiny: marriage. But he can't ignore his duty anymore, not with his guilty conscience nagging at him all the bloody time and a betrothed waiting to become his duchess. So he returns to London, only to discover he has a new and rather enchanting neighbor who soon makes him question where his loyalties lie: with his family or his heart.

not for me

I'm sure I should have read more than 6 chapters but I could read this book. the age difference between the characters while not ideal I just didn't think about to much. But then when the mail lead so quickly disregarded the feelings of his fiance whom he left for 15 YEARS I just couldn't read on. It may be a good book but I really can't continue because I want to slap him with a glove.

ok story

story has merit. the first i have read by this writer. i feel the book dragged, especially around the wedding, and there were too many 'damns' and far too much mithering by the duke. needs a good edit to shorten it.
