But after having his heart trampled upon by someone he actually loved, he has no intention of falling for a woman again, let alone be ensnared by the trap of marriage. Now, with a large inheritance to his name, Harry knows that he'd best start running from London's matchmaking mothers and widows. Harry heads for the racing town of Newmarket, only to encounter Mrs. Lucinda Babbacombe, a beautiful, independent widow. And before he knows it, Harry vows to protect Lucinda from the town full of lonely gambling men, despite her refusal to accept his countless offers of help. Lucinda is extraordinary: an intelligent, tender, marriage-worthy woman... but will Harry let himself be taken prisoner in this most passionate of traps?More

Not Terrible, Just Trite
If Mispronunciation Makes You Crazy
I always enjoy Stephanie Laurens stories
I still just can't believe that Nellie Chalfant didn't know how to pronounce SIGNIFICANT words in this book. If you're familiar with Stephanie Laurens books you'll know how many times the word TON is mentioned. Ton as in Bon Ton -- NOT as in TON of bricks. I like this story, but literally found myself cringing every 2 to 5 minutes because of a mispronounced word. Once in a book, maybe twice you'll hear something and think "huh?" but this goes way beyond. If that sort of thing interferes with your enjoyment please try another title.
