Do not let this modern cover fool you, this is a great historical romance. Once I started reading I couldn't put this book down. I loved Caroline and Alex and even the supporting characters were great. She made all the characters feel like people I have known and the book simply came alive. The plot twists were fun. If you like historical romance, or even just romance between a man and a woman, you will enjoy this book.

~On the deathbed of their beloved father, Caroline Armstrong and her sister are whisked away to London by their grandmother. Though determined to please her doting relative, there is one thing Caroline vows she will never do: marry.

~Handsome, tall, and titled, Alexandre Woodward, Duke of Woodborough, is the catch of the Season---but he doesn't want to be caught. He finds a kindred spirit in the witty Caroline and makes her a scandalous proposition: they will pretend to court to dissuade any overtures of marriage...

~Caroline thought she would be safe for the Season--- and that her deepest secret would remain locked away. But with each minute spent with Alex, she finds herself increasingly enraptured by his charm, his kindness...his kisses. Caught up in a dizzying dance of desire, Caroline accepts another proposal from Alex---one that puts her life in the most dangerous position of all...
