Not even Camp's ingenious wit is enough to redeem her latest romance, in which the devilishly handsome Earl of Dure is in search of a wife, any wife, for a marriage of convenience. The bright-eyed Charity Emerson decides to ""sacrifice"" herself in place of her shy older sister, who's in love with another man and had been designated the one to secure the family's financial future, a clever premise that is lost in a most predictable series of events. The childish reasoning and antics of the heroine are more foolish than fun and denote immaturity, not sensuality. She is certainly no match for the complex and somewhat jaded Earl.(Feb.)
