A SCANDALOUS RUSE
At five and twenty, Miss Jane Ravenwood agrees to a London Season with serious misgivings. Her aunt, the Dowager Countess of Stockmorton, is far more enthusiastic about the undertaking - provided Jane promises to disguise her Welsh heritage and her father's position as a merchant. The elaborate masquerade tries Jane's patience - just as her interest in her cousin's would-be suitor, Richard Hughes, the dashing Marquess of Blackmoore, sets her heart racing...
AN IRRESISTIBLE ATTRACTION
Richard can't put his finger on which of Jane's quirks he finds most provocative, nor can he deny that the intelligent beauty has captured more than his imagination. As delightful as the lady is, however, her rather erratic behavior convinces the marquess that what she's led the ton to believe isn't the whole truth. Yet when he discovers her secret, he must prove that her background - and the tidy fortune her father will one day bequeath her - mean nothing to him without her love.
