Review taken from my Blog Post #145 in August 2011, after borrowing a copy from the library:
Zoe Lexham, daughter of Lord Lexham, had always been a bolter, but at the age of 12 that was her undoing ... a maid sold her into white slavery in Egypt by convincing everyone that she had simply run away ... and of course, with Zoe's history she was believed.
12 years later Zoe manges to outwit her captives and return to England to her family, however Lucien de Grey, Duke of Marchmont who is a close family friend is determined to prove that she is an imposter.
Although as soon as he sets eyes on her, realises that it is the very same Zoe Octavia that drove him to distraction when he was a young boy.
As you can imagine Zoe's reputation, and thereby her family's is now standing in tatters, and she is being hailed as the "Harem Girl" in the press. Lucien therefore takes on the task of making her respectable and accepted enough to be presented at Court, thanks to his title and friendship with the Royal Family.
He's the most popular bachelor in the Beau Monde, but can he pull it off and remain heart whole?
A 4.5 star read.
