Description

HE'LL NEVER SETTLE FOR ONE WOMAN...AND SHE WON'T SETTLE FOR HEARTBREAK...

Debonair bachelor Lord Andrew Forest lives for pleasure and offers no apologies. But he receives a dose of his own medicine when his family's entrancing houseguest beds him, then disappears without so much as a by-your-leave. He'd like to teach the little vixen a thing or two about how to love and man...if he can find her..

After the dashing man of her dreams is revealed as a lying scoundrel, heiress Lana Hilary is ready to seek a match with a respectable gentleman-if only they weren't so dreadfully boring. Unable to rein in her bold nature for long, Lana flirts with trouble and finds herself entangled with exactly the type of man she's vowed to avoid.

Celebrate the 80th birthday of Regency Romance with great books from Sourcebooks Casablanca!

        Starred review from December 5, 2011
        With heart and humor, Grace delivers a rich and winning Regency debut. After a failed engagement to a cheating cad, Lana Hillary vows to marry a man who will love her, cherish her, and not break her heart. Unfortunately, noble gentlemen bore her to bits and her attraction to bad boys is hard to deny. Lord Andrew Forest is a confirmed bachelor, accomplished rake, and not at all appropriate marriage material, but there’s a definite spark between him and Lana. Despite warnings from both sides, the lovebirds decide the temptation and attraction are too great to ignore. Clever and charming, this tale brings in everything Regency fans love—meddling mothers, oppressive high society, subtle wit, steamy interludes, and a bit of intrigue—without ever feeling formulaic.

        January 1, 2012
        Where have all the good men gone? That is what Lana Hillary wants to know. Sure, Lana can find the perfect match for family members and friends, but when it comes to finding her own Prince Charming, all Lana seems to encounter is a bunch of fortune-hunting toads. Still it doesn't keep Lana from trying to find the right man to marry, someone who will cherish and treasure her, someone kind and respectable, someone so totally not like Lord Andrew Forest. The very definition of a love-'em-and-leave-'em rake, Andrew is the last man on earth whom Lana would even consider marrying. However, when Lana finds herself thrown together with Drew at a country-house party, she finds herself giving in to temptation. The difference is that this time Lana vows she will be the one doing the loving and leaving. Grace's fabulously fun debut will dazzle and delight readers with its endearingly outspoken heroine, devilishly rakish hero, and abundance of high-octane sexual chemistry.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2012, American Library Association.)
