Terrance and Sylvain have known each other for ages, and while her family heartily disapproves of him, thinking him a rake and a rogue, Sylvain considers him another misfit, like herself, who will always be BARELY PROPER (4) and unconcerned by society's demands. When he is accused of murdering the husband of his latest flirtation, Sylvain must find a way to keep him safe and help him find the real murderer. Shannon Donnelly has created a very likable pair with Sylvain and her roguish, yet good-hearted, rake. Readers will be cheering for these two eccentric sweethearts to win the day and reap the rewards of their love. (Dec., 224 pp., $4.99)
