As the eldest Merridew sister, it is up to Prudence to save her sisters from their tyrannical grandfather's abuse. When he is bedridden, she spirits them to their uncle in London. Pru hopes they'll find husbands before her grandfather catches them.

Her plan goes awry when Uncle Oswald insists Pru marry first. So plain, practical Pru makes the outrageous claim that she
is betrothed to reclusive Edward, Duke
of Dunstable.

When Pru shows up on the Duke's doorstep to explain her scheme, she's met by his cousin, Gideon Carradice, an unconscionable rogue. By mistaking him for Edward, Pru sets off a game of catch-me-if-you-can. Gideon is enchanted with Pru and sets out to convince her he's the man she wants to marry. Meanwhile, her sisters enter the marriage mart and Edward
seeks a bride.

Gracie knows the Regency well, adding all the perfect details to a traditional plotline—the game of marriage and marrying well. With wit and tenderness, pathos and lessons on the meaning of family loyalty, Gracie entertains and satisfies her fans. SENSUAL (Jul., 356 pp., $7.99)
