ONCE A SCOUNDREL

Author(s): 

When Anthony Morehouse wins The Ladies Fashionable Cabinet in a card game, he thinks he's won a piece of furniture, not a woman's magazine. He plans to sell the publication—until he meets the editor, his childhood friend and nemesis, Edwina Parrish.

When they were younger, Edwina did her best to turn every game into a challenge, every contest into a wager. Tony has never forgiven her for winning the Minerva, a priceless family heirloom. Now he has the chance to win it back.

Edwina must raise the subscription numbers for Cabinet or Tony wins the magazine and the Minerva. The game heats up as Edwina and Tony realize their hearts are also at stake.

Tony is a winning, sexy bad boy and Edwina a spirited woman. Together they are an unbeatable pair sure to enchant readers. Hern knows how to delight and charm. Believe me, you won't take a gamble reading this enchanting charmer of a romance. SENSUAL (Aug., 384 pp., $5.99)
