The traditional English Regency from New York Times bestselling author, Loretta Chase, is back...Lilith Davenant, has ample reason to detest Julian Wyndhurst, Marquess of Brandon: he's exactly the kind of man who hastened the demise of her profligate husband, and the debt he owed to Julian has forced her to an engagement with a wealthy suitor for the sake of supporting her beloved nieces and nephews. Besides that, Lord Julian somehow manages to ignite disturbing... feelings ... she's never felt before! Lord Julian used his considerable skills and cunning in the war against Napoleon. Now he's obliged to use the same talents to save his young cousin from a disastrous marriage to a scheming mistress - who makes him a wager: If Julian can seduce the famously icy Lady Lilith Davenant, the lady will release his cousin from the engagement. But very quickly, Julian discovers Lilith's hidden warmth, kindness and humor. Will he be able to prove his heart to her before she learns of his recklessly shameless wager?

One of the things Loretta Chase excels at is taking a tired premise -- in this case, "hero attempts to seduce heroine on a bet; OBVIOUSLY THIS WILL NOT END WELL" -- and making it fresh and fun again. This was, like all of her books, laugh-out-loud funny and extremely clever, and a great choice for fans of Georgette Heyer, and historical romance in general. If you enjoy books where the heroine despises the hero at the outset (and who doesn't?!), this is a particularly good choice.
