THE TRUTH ABOUT LORD STONEVILLE
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
Jeffries' new series presents the Sharpe siblings, five rakish, roguish, scandalous members of the ton who must marry within the year or lose their inheritance. The author pulls out all the stops with a story combining her hallmark humor, poignancy and sensuality to perfection.
As the Marquess of Stoneville, Oliver Sharpe lives as a carefree rake, until his grandmother insists he wed or lose his income. He defiantly brings home an unsuitable fiancee -- one he finds in a brothel. American Maria Butterfield is in London tracking down her missing fiance. Following a lead, she ends up nabbed by Oliver and blackmailed into pretending to be his betrothed, but their charade unexpectedly turns into an explosive passion. With a little help from friends and family, love just might turn this rogue into a groom. (POCKET, Feb., 380 pp., $7.99)
