Description

Kate Woodbridge has spent most of her life sailing to exotic ports around the globe, acquiring an expertise in botany, along with a few less ladylike skills. So when a deathbed promise to her parents brings her to London to seek reconciliation with her grandfather, the imperious Duke of Cluyne, she feels like a fish out of water. Her outspoken views and fiery temper tend to set off sparks in Society-especially with the rakish Conte of Como.A devil-may-care rogue, Marco finds the alluring and mysterious Kate a tempting target for his flirtations. But when murder strikes at the duke's country house party he begins to suspect that she's hiding a dark secret. He has his own clandestine reasons for offering to help her prove her innocence . . . And so begins a journey of dangerous deception that leads from England to the glittering ballrooms of Vienna, where Marco and Kate must duel with a deadly villain . . . and their own explosive attraction.

        December 20, 2010
        From the first page of this sequel to To Sin with a Scoundrel and To Surrender to a Rogue, Elliott sweeps her readers up in a scintillating and sexy romance between Katharine Kylie Woodbridge and Comte Giovanni Marco Musto della Ghiradelli. Kate, an outspoken, strong-spirited woman somewhat improbably raised as a pirate, is more than a match for Ghiradelli, who spies on England while pretending to be a dissolute wastrel. Intrigued by Kate's past, Ghiradelli pursues her, only to realize he's encountered her before in a Naples brothel. As their story plays out against a backdrop of continental politics, obscure botanical poisons, family arguments, and erotic statuary, heated passions come to a boil. A secondary romance between Kate's grandfather and her fellow bluestocking Lady Charlotte Fenimore is charming but never intrusive.

        Kate Woodbridge is having a difficult enough time trying to fit into polite society without having to deal with Marco, the Conte of Como. After her parents death, Kate honored their last wishes by returning to England to live with her grandfather, the Duke of Cluyne, but independent, outspoken Kate seems to constantly clash with her stuffy, proper grandfather. The last thing Kate needs is to become involved with a notorious rake like Marco, who continues to flirt with Kate despite her best efforts to send him packing. However, when Kate finds herself tangled up in a murder investigation, having someone with Marcos unique skills might not only be useful, it could also save Kates life. Elliott expertly sifts a generous measure of dangerous intrigue into the plot of her latest impeccably crafted Regency historical, which should prove all too tempting to readers with a craving for deliciously clever, wickedly sexy romances.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2011, American Library Association.)
