Sebastian Laidley, sixth Earl of Carleton and confirmed bachelor, makes a promise to his dying godfather. He will find his childhood friend, Gemma, a husband in three months...or marry her himself.

Gemma Maitland has been snubbed by society because of her mother's dubious reputation, but that's of no importance to Gemma. She's happiest on her grandfather's estate. Most women dream of falling in love. Gemma dreams of running this estate, the place that's always held her heart.

Sebastian lures Gemma to his estate under the false pretense of Gemma helping his sister plan her upcoming nuptials. He has three months to work his magic. During all the balls and soirees, there's no shortage of men vying for Gemma's attention. However, she is not interested in other men, and Sebastian finds himself thwarting off suitors because he wants Gemma all for himself. What a dilemma for a confirmed bachelor. Or is it?

Gemma has plans of her own. While she works on melting Sebastian's heart, she burns herself into his soul. Read this delightful novel and watch the sparks fly as a good man is brought to his knees by love.

Christine Wells has gifted us with a charming debut novel sure to win your heart. She's woven a wonderful tapestry of humor and sensuality with a message about the healing power of love. I was enchanted by SCANDAL'S DAUGHTER and look forward to more winners by Ms. Wells in the future.

She could overcome her infamous past-but not a present-day passion.

As a promise to her dying grandfather, self-proclaimed rake Sebastian Laidley has three months to marry off his childhood friend Gemma-or marry her himself. But this daughter of a notorious seductress has inherited her mother's charms, and when she turns them on Sebastian, he'll long to be the only man who wins her heart.
