Clever and determined, Lady Marian Lawrence arrived in London to snare a rich husband in hopes of saving her family from ruin—not an easy task given her biting wit and lack of beauty. Hiding her true self, she almost wins the hand of the wealthy, amiable Lord Darley—until Darley’s best friend blocks their path to the altar.

Far from rich but well aware of his aristocratic lineage, Montague is prepared to do anything to stop Marian, including seduce her. With dazzling skill and subtle stratagem, he sets out to change Marian’s dislike for him into desire—as Marian struggles to keep the lie she’s living from being revealed by a truly disastrous love…
“A deliciously light-hearted traditional Regency.” — Mary Jo Putney, author of No Longer A Gentleman
