Product Description

"Live the romance. Read Loretta Chase" -- Christina Dodd

The traditional English Regency from New York Times bestselling author, Loretta Chase, is back…

Lilith Davenant, has ample reason to detest Julian Wyndhurst, Marquess of Brandon: he's exactly the kind of man who hastened the demise of her profligate husband, and the debt he owed to Julian has forced her to an engagement with a wealthy suitor for the sake of supporting her beloved nieces and nephews. Besides that, Lord Julian somehow manages to ignite disturbing...feelings...she's never felt before!

Lord Julian used his considerable skills and cunning in the war against Napoleon. Now he's obliged to use the same talents to save his young cousin from a disastrous marriage to a scheming mistress — who makes him a wager: If Julian can seduce the famously icy Lady Lilith Davenant, the lady will release his cousin from the engagement.

But very quickly, Julian discovers Lilith's hidden warmth, kindness and humor. Will he be able to prove his heart to her before she learns of his recklessly shameless wager?

About the Author

After a heroic attempt to be an English major forever, Loretta Chase stoically accepted her degree but kept on reading and writing. As well as working in academe, she had an enlightening if brief life in retail and a Dickensian six-month experience as a meter maid. In the course of moonlighting as a corporate video scriptwriter, she succumbed to the charm of a producer, who lured her into writing novels -- and marrying him. The union has resulted in what seems like an awful lot of books and quite a few awards, including the Romance Writers of America’s Rita. Heralded as “…the long awaited successor to Georgette Heyer” by Library Journal, Loretta Chase’s historical romance novels have been published all over the world. To learn more, please visit

Lillith Davenport must marry again. She has settled upon a reliable gentleman and will sacrifice her independence for the future of her beloved nieces (one hopes they're worth it!)
Enter the "bad beautiful angel" determined to seduce her and his wayward nephew...
Set in regency England of course, this fine story sails along convincingly & touchingly, with charming charachters and the usual Chase wit - interjected where most welcome & least expected.
Lilith is a heroine who really IS sensible, looks after herself, doesn't sigh after the wicked hero, never makes foolish decisions and needs rescuing and altogether manages to be more convincing than any other creation. Even with all this sense & so little sensibility, she remains a refreshing & charming character whist he is just the opposite but so very debonair and beautifully repentant later.
Some similarities to Elizabeth Mansfield style of writing, but much better, and there are the ultimate comparisons to Georgette Heyer's of course...

5.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing 7 Jan 2013
By Venetia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first Loretta Chase book I have read but it certainly won't be the last. I found the whole thing thoroughly engrossing. The hero, Julian, is charismatic and utterly cool and his relationship with his cousin adds a lot of humour. The only thing that spoiled it was the endless typos and a whole plethora of other mistakes. Ms Chase could do with giving her novel a thorough re-edit. It would be worth her time because the book is undoubtedly worth it.
