LORD PERFECT

Author(s): 

Perfect in every way, Benedict Carsington, Viscount Rathbourne, would never incur scandal. Bathsheba Wingate is a member of the notorious DeLucey family, known throughout England as liars, frauds and swindlers. The widowed Bathsheba must find the means to support her daughter and give her a respectable life, which is what brings her to Benedict.

Her daughter has convinced Benedict's nephew that it is their obligation to unearth a long-lost treasure.

To save the children, Benedict and Bathsheba put themselves in the dangerous position of spending a great deal of time together. Is it possible that the most imperfect of women could lead the most ideal of men astray? As mayhem ensues, Benedict loses his perfect control as love seeps into his life.

Leave it to Chase to lead us on a merry quest through mayhem and madness as Bathsheba and Benedict discover being perfect isn't important, but being in love is. Chase sweeps away winter doldrums with a breath of fresh air in a witty, warm and enchanting romance that takes your breath away. SENSUAL (Mar., 304 pp., $7.99)
