Consummate storyteller Jeffries pens another title
in the School for Heiresses series that is destined to captivate readers with its sensuality and wonderfully enchanting plot.

To help her father regain his reputation as a physician, Madeline Prescott takes a position at Mrs. Harris's School for Young Ladies. She plans to meet a scientist who can vindicate her father's use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) during surgery. To do this she needs the help of Anthony Dalton, Viscount Norcourt, and she convinces Mrs. Harris to allow Anthony to instruct her students on how to avoid a rake. Madeline is to supervise the lessons, which makes her vulnerable to Anthony's seductive techniques.

The science-minded Madeline's overwhelming attraction to Anthony surprises her, and he sees her as the ultimate challenge. It's inevitable that they succumb to temptation. Is Madeline willing to risk her reputation to be in Anthony's bed, and is Anthony able to change from rogue to sincere lover? (Pocket, Mar., 380 pp., $7.50)
