UNDRESSED BY THE EARL

Image of Undressed by the Earl (Secrets in Silk)

The third Secrets in Silk entry is the beautiful story of Amelia Andrews, the sister who restores an earl’s grieving heart by showing him he can love again. Familial support and discord coexist in this exceptional work. Subplots and loose threads lead to the eagerly awaited conclusion of the quartet.

Amelia’s secret family business selling ladies unmentionables is being threatened, and the viscount that discarded her older sister is pursuing her. Amelia’s always harbored a tendre for Viscount Linsford and welcomes his attentions. She believes David Hartford, the Earl of Castledon, a lonely widower, is perfect for her jilted older sister. Her matchmaking efforts are doomed to failure as she sees beneath David’s façade. Too late, Amelia realizes her feelings for Linsford are misplaced and David is meant for her, but the wheels for disaster are already in motion. Can David save her in time and bring her love to his empty heart? (MONTLAKE, Jul., 355 pp., $12.95)
