Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
Noble's dazzling debut is witty, filled with the atmosphere of the era and brimming with unforgettable characters and a refreshing plot.
Miss Gail Alton gets into trouble too easily -- which is why she's sent to London for a season with her beautiful sister, Evangeline. When she's toppled by a handsome gentleman out riding and he falls in a fountain, how can she know he'll end up in a compromising situation with Evangeline and be forced to ask for her sister's hand?
Maximillian, Viscount Fontaine, may be attracted to Evangeline, but he can't think straight when Gail is around. The more he's near her, the more he longs to get her into a compromising position, in his bed. Finding a way to marry the right sister for the right reasons turns this typical marriage tale into the delight of the season. (Berkley, Mar., 384 pp., $14.00)
