Image of Too Scandalous to Wed

Sexy, quick-paced, humorous and utterly charming, Benedict's novel is delectable. She puts a new twist on classic themes and engages readers with unforgettable characters we truly care about.

Desperate to have Sebastian, the Viscount Ravenswood, see her as a woman, Henrietta (Henry) Ashby takes matters into her own hands: She visits a courtesan for lessons in seduction.

For eight years Sebastian has tried to deaden his attraction to Henry. But now he's unable to resist, and Henry's ready to have her dreams come true -- until Sebastian discovers her scheme and rushes from her bed. Henry decides to reclaim Sebastian by following him to his "gentleman's club," an infamous Hellfire gathering that leads straight to scandal. A man of honor, Sebastian proposes, having no idea that his secret life and a vengeful enemy place Henry in danger. (Avon, Sep., 394 pp., $5.99)
