About the book:
When Wilhemina Turner’s younger sister runs off with a young Lothario, she has no choice but to turn to the notorious rake who broke his promise and her heart, for assistance. George Bartlett, the Marquess of Chesterton, hasn’t forgotten the woman who hurt him so many years ago, but can’t deny her request, knowing that his brother’s reputation, and fortune, is at risk. A series of misfortunes leave the straight-laced widow and committed bachelor stranded, sharing both close quarters and old secrets. But when morning comes, will this unlikely pair find a second chance at love?
EXCERPT“Henry said she was the loveliest girl he’d ever seen. I called him an idiot and reminded him that he was only five and twenty years old. There was still plenty of time for him to meet other women and not to hang all his hopes on that one. He’d told me I was wrong and that she’d be his. I had no idea he’d go as far as this.”“That scoundrel!” She pounded her fists on the desk.He narrowed his gaze. “I wouldn’t throw around names if I were you. Your sister is hardly the innocent party here.”She leaned forward, bracing herself against the oak desk. “You just said it yourself. Your brother, the cad, had it all planned out.”“Marriage to a man with a title would be most advantageous for a girl like Katherine Marks. Not to mention his money. Even with me still in the picture, he still does rather well for himself. Silly chits like your sister are constantly throwing themselves at him, though I’ve never seen a girl do it quite so literally before.”His brother, Henry, Viscount Wainscott, had inherited the same good looks as all the Bartlett men, himself included. He also had the benefit of learning all he knew about the opposite sex from his big brother, making for a dangerous combination. Only, he’d the knowledge and experience to know the truth behind a woman’s motivation,whereas Henry was young and consequently ignorant. He was still easily swayed by a head of bouncing blonde curls and a come-hither gaze. Those lessons are often the hardest to learn and nearly impossible to teach.“Are you accusing Kitty of going after your brother for his money?”“She wouldn’t be the first.”Willie set her jaw firmly, just as she always had when she was angry. “A decade later and you’re still following your father’s example. You still think the worst of women, don’t you?”“I’m simply waiting to be proven wrong.”
