A DATE WITH DISHONOR
A case of mistaken identity leads to smoldering passion and threats of scandal in Brendan’s new romance, the first book in the Dewey Sisters series. It’s charming, authentic and sensual, but the pacing is a little slow at times.
Elise Dewey is shocked at the lengths her sister will go to find a husband. She rushes to stop her sister’s clandestine meeting with “Mr. Best,” only to be mistaken for “Lady Lonesome” herself. Viscount Alex Blackthorne is used to women falling all over him, which is probably why he is smitten with the one woman who doesn’t. There is a clash of wills and a stolen kiss before they go their separate ways — but they aren’t apart for long. Their newfound passion is soon tested by past scandals and an enemy hellbent on their destruction. (HARLEQUIN, Oct., 288 pp., $6.50)
