Mrs. Thorncroft wants her daughter, Mariah, to marry a titled man. Due to Mariah's brother Steven's enterprising ways, the family is invited as guests at the wealthy Earl of Haverstone's. While Stone Haverstone barely remembers extending the invite (it happened, after all, during one of Stone's gambling expeditions, after he lost a whopping 15,000 pounds), he is now entertaining a family that hardly fits in with his social circle. Despite Mrs. Thorncroft's throwing of her daughter at Stone, who is reputed to be a rake of the worst sort, Mariah and Stone soon find Moonlight and Mischief (4) with one another. In this delightfully warm story by Rhonda Woodward, Stone has much to prove to the woman he'd like to make his wife. (Dec., 224 pp., $4.99)
