Miss Melpomene Fiske, better known as Pommy, had marriage on her mind. But she did not have it in her plans. For marriage was what she vowed to escape. That was why she found herself alone and defenseless on the midnight streets of London. And that was how she was seized by the handsome, wealthy, and dissolute Lord Justin Harcourt. This dazzling gentleman wanted marriage just as little as she. Love, though, was a dangerously different story.
From Inside Cover: Pommy felt Justin's hot gaze on her, sliding caressingly from crown to toe. He must, she thought, hear the blood pounding in her head as he came toward her. She felt the kiss in his eyes as though his lips had already taken possession of hers. She understood the hunger she saw in his eyes, for that same need swept over her in wordless demand.
Pommy of course, was engaged to another man, the odious Frederick Watters. And Justin was engaged to another woman, the insipid Anilee Mortimer.
What they were engaged in now, though, was something else. Something close to scandal....
Light and entertaining read. Easy plot, not overly complicated.
