National best-selling author Rebecca Hagan Lee pushes another stubborn bachelor of the Free Fellows League toward the altar in Hardly a Husband. And obstinate Marquess Jarrod Shepherdston is not about to take the plunge without protest. In 1820s England, Sarah Eckersley, the daughter of the late rector in Bedsforshire, has lost her father, been forced to move from her home, and is doggedly pursued by the loathsome Lord Dunbridge. Her only course of action is to become a renowned courtesan. And Jarrod Shepherdston is just the man to become Sarah's first lover. For Jarrod, who's taken great pains to avoid marriage his entire life, the offer is quite tempting. But Sarah's plot works so well that Jarrod begins to wonder just what he could be missing.More
"Another superbly sexy treat that is perfect for readers who like their love stories leavened with a lavish dash of wit and a discreet hint of intrigue." (Booklist)
