Publisher's Summary

Lady Honora Parker must get engaged as soon as possible, and only a particular type of man will do. Nora seeks a mate so abhorrent, so completely unacceptable, that her father will reject the match - leaving her free to marry the artist she desires. Who then is the most appalling man in Manhattan? The wealthy, devilishly handsome financier Julius Hatcher, of course!
Julius is intrigued by Nora's ruse and decides to play along. But, to Nora's horror, Julius transforms himself into the perfect fiancé, charming the very people she hoped he would offend. It seems Julius has a secret plan of his own - one that will solve a dark mystery from his past and perhaps turn him into the kind of man Nora could truly love.

This is my first Joanna Shupe book. I am having mixed feeling about the storyline but not the author. I will read more books by her.

Lady Nora Parker the only child of the Earl of Stratton has been caught kissing and artist and her father immediately sends her to America. She is too stay with her Aunt Beatrice and Uncle James Cortland. Nora is after all the daughter of a distinguish Earl and from a aristocratic family. Her father will never allow her to marry a lowly poor artist. The story starts out in 1890 London and moves to New York city during the time of the Knickerbockers. The beginnings of the Wall Street the financial District of America. Nora wants to return home to her fiancé Robert. She comes up with a scheme to find a fake fiancé and start a scandal with him in American. Once her father hears of it he will demand her to come home to London.

Julius Hatcher is Filthy Rich one of the riches young men in New York. He is a stock magnet and knows when to buy and when to sale. His Huge Fortune, Handsome looks and is know to be a scandalous Rogue captures Nora's eye. This is the man she need to help her get back to Robert.

Well of course the two eventually find themselves sexually attracted to each other and there attraction grows each day until they explode. At first I thought maybe just maybe Nora had not given her virginity to Robert the artist. The author leads your to believe that her and Robert where just caught kissing at a ball. But we find out they did much more then kissing. Her lack of virginity does not bother Julius. He admires her for her fearlessness. But for me she comes off a bit of a immature shrew. I found myself hoping Julius whom I loved. He is a Mans Mans. would go back to his actress mistress Poppy Desmond. I don't know why I never could really like Nora. Maybe its because she is deceiving everyone in to thinking she is an innocent until nearly the end of the story. Julius has a great story and he is very well written. He save the story for me.
