Publisher's Summary

For 11 years, Gillian Rutherford has dreamed of escaping her family's dark secret and living a normal life. Now, faced with an unwelcome marriage that will chain her to London and the secret slowly killing her, she's desperate to save herself and the sister she adores. Salvation comes in the form of an American shipping tycoon, and all she must do is seduce him into marrying her. But Gillian's scheme hits a snag when she makes a bargain with a notorious rake Alexander Trevelle, Lord Lionhurst. He'll help her win the hand of his American friend, if she'll assist him with exacting revenge against her unwanted fiancé. But the price of the pact may just be their hearts.

Good one

I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to see how dedicated some people can be to family. The entire story was centered around family secrets and the lengths people will go to, to keep their family secrets. I'd recommend the book.

Similar to My Fair Duchess

Yes the characters are similar in that the hero is wounded by a woman, heroine imagines being married to someone other than the hero, hero wishes to become a rake because of a family experience, the hero is honorable and also dances with wallflowers other men don't in order to help them, all friends know about the secret plot characters are involved in so really not much of a secret, and of course a bad guy. Even though I knew all of that I still could not stop myself from seeking a moment free to go and listen to the book. Still enjoyable and now I am going to get another book by Julie Johnstone. You should too.
