Publisher's Summary

A bargain that was all business - and pure passion. Neither wealth nor beauty will help Lady Francesca Gordon win custody of her young niece Georgina, saving the girl from a cruel stepmother. She needs London's top solicitor for that. But when Edward de Lacey, son of the powerful Duke of Durham, hires away the one man who can do the job, Francesca decides Edward himself must champion her case - if only she can melt the dashing lord's stony heart. Edward has reason to be guarded, though. London's tabloids have just exposed a secret that could ruin his entire family. When Francesca offers a unique chance to undo the damage, Edward is forced to agree to a partnership and now, each moment together feeds the flames of his scandalous longing for the passionate widow. But when Georgina disappears, fate will test them both...and leave their love hanging in the balance.

Not bad but...

Mixed emotions on this one. The story was great! Two separate plot lines - three if we include the romance - and interesting characters made this an enjoyable "read" but since I listened to an audiobook I have to take points off for the narration. Many points! The reader did a terrible job with Francesca's dialogue. He made her sound like an 80 year old dowager. I found it VERY distracting. I liked the way Francesca was a strong independent woman. Always a positive in a book, as far as I'm concerned. Edward was a good character, too, and I liked the fact that he and his brothers seemed to get along quite well. I'm looking forward to reading their stories.

Interesting Story!

I liked the story and was pleased by the fact that it wasn't the typical earl chasing the virginal miss. The characters were interesting. I enjoyed watching the interplay between the main characters contrasting personalities and the way the heroine caused the hero to loosen up. Linden also writes steamy love scenes! Worth the read.
