Matchmaking mayhem in Mayfair!
Sally Cowan, Countess of Norwood, spent ten miserable years
married to an overbearing oaf. Now sheâ€™s free, she plans to
have some fun. But before she kicks her heels up, this
Dashing Widow sets out to launch her pretty, headstrong
niece Meg into society and find her a good husband.
When rich and charming Sir Charles Kinglake gives every sign
that he canâ€™t get enough of Megâ€™s company, Sally is
delighted to play chaperone at all their meetings. Charles
is everything thatâ€™s desirable in a gentleman suitor. How
disastrous, when over the course of the seasonâ€™s most
elegant house party, Sally realizes that desire is precisely
the name of the game. Sheâ€™s found her nieceâ€™s perfect
matchâ€”but she wants him for herself!
There are none so blind as those who will not seeâ€¦
From the moment Sir Charles Kinglake meets sparkling Lady
Norwood, heâ€™s smitten. He courts her as a gentleman
shouldâ€”dancing with her at every glittering ball, taking her
to the theatre, escorting her around London. Because sheâ€™s
acting as chaperone to her niece, that means most times, Meg
accompanies them. The lack of privacy chafes a man consumed
by desire, but Charlesâ€™s intentions are honorable, and heâ€™s
willing to work within the rules to win the wife he wants.
However when he discovers that his careful pursuit has
convinced Sally heâ€™s interested in Meg rather than her, he
flings the rules out the window. When love is at stake, who
cares about a little scandal? Itâ€™s time for charming Sir
Charles to abandon the subtle approach and play the
passionate lover, not the society suitor!
