Camp's latest has murder, secrets
and enough sensuality to please
any reader in the emotionally
packed second installment of her Matchmakers series.

Kidnapped as a child and raised on the streets of London, Gideon Banks, now a self-made man, returns to his family as the new Earl of Radbourne. One of his duties is marriage.

It falls upon Lady Francesca Haughston, with the help of Lady Irene Wyngate, to turn the formidable Gideon into an aristocratic gentleman. But neither Irene's sharp tongue nor her reluctance to marry deters Gideon's interest in her. Irene warms to him and soon falls in love. But although Gideon proposes to her, he claims he's unable to love. That, and the discovery of murder and the revelation of family secrets, presents obstacles to their happiness.
