Characters: Merlyn Forrest Steele and Cameron Thorpe.
She is an heiress tired of men wanting her for her money, so she goes incognito as an assistant to a romance writer, whose son Cameron Thorpe is the living, breathing embodiment of a dark and brooding Jane Austen hero.
I love the sparks between these characters, and the twist that forces the hero to convince his intended to marry him because she may already be pregnant when she is dead set in denying it.
Marlyn Forrest Steele couldn't refuse the offer---work for a living for one month, and her father would stop his clumsy matchmaking attempts. Maybe she'd somehow find a man who had eyes for her, not her bank account, and meanwhile, she could prove she was no dilettante heiress.
So it was ironic that the first man to penetrate her defenses in her new life would be the one who was looking for just that. Not that she'd have the sardonic, arrogant Cameron Thorpe, even if he asked her. Let him go ahead and marry some insipid little heiress-he'd get exactly what he deserved.
