Image of Sex and the Single Earl

With smart, sassy characters, a fast pace, rapier-sharp dialogue and engaging characters, Kelly captures reader attention with this sexy romance. The traditional marriage-of-convenience plotline is enhanced by the history and background of industrialization.

Simon St. James, ninth Earl of Trask, needs a wife, but not just any wife; he needs Sophie Stanton. She's better than the average chit, being intelligent and willful, with an underlying passion. She also comes with the coal-rich land that Simon needs to complete his enterprise.

Sophie wants more than a marriage of convenience. She's already in love with Simon and she's ready to make him fall in love with her. She has her own crusade against child labor and when her ideas collide with his plans, things really heat up -- in and out of each others' arms. (ZEBRA, May, 352 pp., $6.99)
