Publisher's Summary

It is whispered behind the fans of London's dowagers and in the corners of fashionable ballrooms that scandal follows willfully wild Lady Beatrix Lennox wherever she goes.
Three years before, the debutante created a sensation by being found in a distinctly compromising position. Now, the town has branded her as unmarriageable, her family has called her a vixen, and Beatrix sees no reason not to go after what - and who - she wishes.
And she wants Stephen Fairfax-Lacy, the handsome Earl of Spade. Beatrix, with her brazen suggestions and irresistibly sensuous allure, couldn't be more different from the earl's ideal future bride. Yet Beatrix brings out a wildness in the earl he has tried to deny far too long. Still, he's not about to play love's game by Lady Beatrix's rules. She may be used to being on top in affairs of the heart, but that will soon change.

A Deightful Romantic Comedy of Errors

I love this "Duchess Quarter" series, and this book did not disappoint. As with the other books, the stories are about 3 friends and their romances where the story lines get intertwined and then resolved. In this book one character ends up involved with all 3 women romancing one, pretending to romance another to make her husband jealous and pretending to be engaged to another. The book is much richer if the reader is familiar with the story of Esme and Sebastian from the previous book, even though the book stands alone just fine. I love the way that Eloisa James uses classical literature, particularly Shakespeare, to weave into the romances she writes. Here "Romeo and Juliet* plays a role, though it is not necessary to know the classics to enjoy these references. Though some readers were put off by the catty attitudes of some of the women in this book, James is clearly mocking these prudish and even vicious social attitudes just as Shakespeare does, By this technique James enriches her stories with the beauty of classical literature at the same time she shows that love and romance are an important part of all good literature.
