Thorn Dautry, the illegitimate son of a duke, has made his fortune; now he is ready to find a wife. He sets his sights on the perfect miss, but it’s her mother he has to please. Thorn purchases a rundown estate and seeks the help of London’s most coveted decorator, Lady Xenobia India. No lady and no ingénue, she accepts the task of transforming Thorn’s home. Collaborating brings them closer together, and Thorn recognizes a kindred spirit. Falling in love is inevitable, but misunderstandings soon tear them apart. They each must realize that what matters is love. (AVON, Apr., 380 pp., $7.99)
