Baker & Taylor
Believing him dangerously close to bankruptcy, Amelia Cynster proposes marriage to a very drunk Lucien Ashford, and is confused and annoyed when instead of the quick wedding she had wanted, he insists on a full courtship.


Amelia Cynster is stunned to hear these words from Lucien Ashford—the enigmatic sixth Viscount Calverton and the man she has always loved—just before the handsome rogue passes out at her feet. Dawn is breaking and she's already risked scandal by lying in wait for him just outside his London home. And though torn between indignant affront and astonished relief, she's nevertheless thrilled that Luc has agreed to her outrageous marriage proposal.

However, rather than submitting to a hasty wedding as Amelia had planned, the exasperating lord insists on wooing her properly…in public and in private. She longs for their time alone, when she can learn all about seduction from a master, yet frustratingly, they all too often find themselves beneath the stifling gaze of the ton.

But there is method behind the viscount's madness—he has a secret reason for wooing Amelia. And like all desirable things, his passion has a price.

What a fun series the Cynsters are! Love the romance.

This book, like most of Stephanie Laurens' books, makes me think "men are uncommunicative idiots." I enjoy the plot lines of these books but I find the unwillingness of the male characters to talk to their wives/betrothed rather frustrating. Knowing that a) they are just characters and b) I am, as the reader, privy to more information than they are, does little to calm my annoyance. I have to credit Laurens with being able to create male characters that you both want to hug and throttle at the same time.
