SHE'S IN NEED OF A PARTNER
Miss Cecily Hurston would much rather explore the
antiquities of Egypt than the uncharted territory of
marriage. But the rules of her father's exclusive academic
society forbid her entrance unless she weds one of its
members. To clear her ailing father's name of a scandalous
rumor, Cecily needs to gain admission into the Egyptian
Club—and is willing to marry any old dullard to do it.
AND HE HAS ALL THE RIGHT MOVES
Lucas Dalton, Duke of Winterson, is anything but dull. He's
a dashing and decorated war hero determined to help
Cecily—even if that means looking the other way when
she claims the dance card of Amelia Snow, this season's
most sought–after beauty. But Lucas has a reason for
wanting Cecily to join the Egyptian Club: His brother went
missing during one of Lord Hurston's expeditions to Egypt.
An alliance with the explorer's bluestocking daughter could
bring Lucas closer to the truth about what happened...or it
could lead him to a more dangerous love than either he or
Cecily could have imagined....
