When a cad assaults Genevieve Stafford and her fiancé jilts her for causing scandal, family friend Sir Myles Thorwood offers her marriage to save her from ruin. Genevieve reluctantly agrees, worrying that Myles may regret his choice, but Myles is determined to win over his new bride. Genevieve is the epitome of a proper Stafford woman, but being with Myles awakens her body and heart, and when it’s discovered that the assault was a setup, Genevieve is ready to throw propriety out the window. The final Legend of St. Dwynwen Regency romance (after A Summer Seduction) is filled with sensuality, intrigue, and Camp’s trademark romantic sparring. While the constant miscommunication between Myles and Genevieve wears, it doesn’t hinder the novel’s delightful readability.(May)
