RT Rating

Layton masterfully merges humor and strong emotions -- with a handsome but starchy gentleman; an unconventional, fascinating, adorable female; her sea captain grandfather; and a worldly governess who likes to tipple -- into a well-written, lively, fast-paced and sensual novel.

Lord Constantine Wylde never does anything in excess. Every inch the gentleman, he's engaged to the straitlaced Miss Winchester.

Then Captain Bigod appears on
his doorstep and announces that Con
is betrothed to his granddaughter, Lisabeth. Con travels to the captain's home to find out more about his so-called fiancee. He enjoys spending
time with the lovely and free-spirited Lisabeth, who gives him the gift of laughter, happiness and love. Though Lisabeth accepts his hand in marriage (after she seduces him) she suddenly changes her mind.

Con devises a plan to win her back: remind her of his great-grandfather and father, whom she found dashing. But
his best-laid plans don't turn out as
he expected. (Avon, Dec., 384 pp., $5.99)
