"Brenda Hiatt handles the story beautifully: it is fast, witty and fun." ~Publishers Weekly

First impressions can be most deceiving!

Under the tutelage of her strict father, then that of an equally strict husband twice her age, Nessa, Lady Haughton, has been trained all her life to be a model of English propriety and virtue. But beneath the inexperienced young widow's oh-so-prim exterior, she craves a taste of the wickedness she has always been denied. Now that she is finally free, she intends to satisfy that craving!

Notorious rakehell and war hero Jack Ashecroft finds himself unexpectedly elevated to Marquis of Foxhaven. But to claim the fortune that goes with the title, Jack must renounce his wild ways and establish himself as a respectable member of Society. The surest, quickest path, he is certain, will be to find and wed a woman beyond reproach—if one will have him.

When Jack and Nessa meet, each thinks the other is exactly the ticket to the changes they are seeking. Sparks will fly when they discover each other's true goals—especially if it's already too late to turn back!

"A real gem...Brenda Hiatt beautifully captures the era as we watch Jack and Nessa play by the rules of society while making a few of their own." ~RT Book Reviews
