Beatrice Von Furstenberg is a rich suffragette who refuses to give her 16-year-old niece permission to marry her 18-year-old suitor. So, the teens come up with a scheme to stage a mock robbery then a daring rescue of Beatrice's carriage. Attorney Connor Barrow agrees to help out with the crazy plan, never dreaming he would be responsible for Beatrice being locked up in a brothel. When she finds out how she ended up spending time in this brothel, she blackmails Connor into helping women get the right to vote.

I was disappointed with the first half of this book. I didn't care for the heroine and didn't see any sparks between the her and the hero. But, the story did get more interesting and you could finally see the relationship forming. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

From the back cover...

An immovable uptown lady...
Rich suffragette Beatrice Von Furstenberg was tough enough to trade stocks on Wall Street and smart enough to resist the temptation of passion. Adamant about women being independent-and without a romantic bone in her lovely body-she had sternly refused to give her moonstuck sixteen-year-old ward permission to was an eighteen-year-old suitor. Now the desperate teens have dreamed up a mock robbery and a daring rescue to change Beatrice's mind.

An irresistible downtown man...
Attorney Connor Barrow, a rogue of an Irishman with a silver tongue, remembers all too well the burning desires of youth. So he agrees to help in a crazy plan that will land him in a world of trouble. Suddenly he is responsible for the most influential lady in the city being locked up in a brothel, furious and threatening his ruin. Neither of them expects that first breathless kiss-a deal that would make the devil himself blush-and, most of all, the ways love can change a man's mind and open a woman's heart...
