It has taken Eugenie Belmont but
a moment to decide whom to marry . . .
Unfortunately the gentleman in question, the Duke
of Somerton, hasn't yet offered--a mere formality
for a confirmed member of the Husband Hunters Club
of Miss Debenham's Finishing School. Like her
friends, Eugenie is unwilling to wait demurely until
the perfect mate happens by. And, despite the
handsome duke's imposing reputation, she can feel
his heated glances in her direction are charged
with desire . . . and possibilities.
Saddled with a dukedom, a haughty dowager,
and an irresponsible younger sister, Sinclair St. John is
far too occupied with important matters to indulge in
romantic whims. But for the first time in his life, a brazen
temptress has him utterly distracted. He could--and
he should--dismiss her and court someone more
befitting his station. But he is irresistibly drawn to this bewitching woman . . . and must match her game
of seduction, move for passionate move.
