Eloise Goodwin has more than her reputation as governess at stake. It is days away from her charge's wedding and the girl has run off with a rogue. Lord Drake Boscastle has planned for his night with Europe's most notorious courtesan for months. With the moment at hand he is distracted by a curvaceous governess who needs his help in locating a missing heiress. When Drake comes to the rescue he begins losing his heart to Eloise and sets out to win the game of love. He tries to convince Eloise to be his mistress and when she refuses he vows to have her surrender her heart and become his wife.

The delightfully wicked game of love is played out with Drake's family and friends' high jinks and Eloise learning that love, lust, passion and pleasure are worth any price. (Ivy, Oct., 384 pp., $6.99)
