This review is from: Sapphire (Mira Historical Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
After her mother dies, Sapphire leaves Martinique and travels to England with her adopted sister and godmother to find the Earl of Wessex, whom Sapphire has just discovered is her real father. But the earl is dead, and a distant cousin, the American Blake Thixton, has inherited the title. Convinced that Sapphire is nothing more than a fortune hunter, Blake refuses to honor her claim. To force Blake and her English relatives into acknowledging her, Sapphire agrees to her godmother's outrageous plan that the three of them pretend to be in the market for protectors. Sapphire never expected that Blake would then offer her a position as his mistress or that she would be sorely tempted to accept. Rogers' legion of readers will be delighted to find that her latest historical romance features the same brand of arrogant, bold, and sexy hero; stubborn, beautiful, and unconventional heroine; and passionate plot that first made this genre wildly popular in the early 1980s."
