If only Miss Lisle Berry Thynne's gown hadn't been so fully cut, or she hadn't been caught kissing that prince . . . But now the ton believes Lisle to be with royal child - and therefore unmarriageable - so she might as well make her desperate father happy by consenting to wed a beast.
A brilliant surgeon with a reputation for losing his temper - and a wound believed to have left him . . . incapable - Piers, Earl of Montague, should welcome a bride-to-be carrying a ready-made, blue-blooded heir. But Piers isn't fooled by the lady's subterfuge, and though Lisle's devilishly smart and charming with a loveliness that outshines the sun, there will be no wedding of beauty to beast.
Still, Lisle finds the gorgeous brute intriguing, with a spark of gentility behind his growl that's worth fanning. And it's obvious to the naked eye that 'incapable' does not mean 'uninterested' . . .
Lovely read !! I wasn't expecting it to be that great but it was brilliant
Good but not great
The premise sounded great but the story didn’t clip along like other of her novels (and let’s face it she is the queen of historical romance).
