For anyone looking for a fun, light and fast read, Nash’s latest is perfect — a delectable mix of mirth, mayhem, sensuality, humor and poignancy that will have you remembering what it was like to fall in love.
The Royal Entourage, Prinny’s inner circle, has caused quite a bit of scandal, and the Prince Regent is demanding the Duke of Candover wed. He secretly hopes he’ll choose Isabelle Tremont, the Duchess of March; after all, she is Prinny’s secret pen pal and she has loved the duke forever. Even though she fears he will think he is too old for her, Isabelle boldly proposes to Candover. Alas, he’s had two bungled engagements, and he’s not about to spoil their friendship. However, Isabelle is determined to lure him into her arms … and her bed. With a few dangerous suitors vying for her hand, Candover will have to realize he’s in love with her before it’s too late.
