The Marquis and the Vixen: The Blue Rose Regency Romances: The Culpepper Misses. (Unabridged)
A tormented marquis. A vivacious vixen. A deadly foe.
Dragged to London for a season, Blythe Culpepper is dismayed to learn her guardian has enlisted the devilishly attractive Lord Leventhorpe - the one man she detests - to assist with her launch into polite society. Since their first encounter, hostile looks and cutting retorts abound whenever they meet. Still, she cannot deny the way her body reacts when he’s near. So, perhaps it’s no surprise that upon overhearing another woman scheming to entrap Tristan into marriage, Blythe must warn him.
Tristan, the austere and controlled Marquis of Leventhorpe, usually avoids social gatherings. So why, against his better judgement, does he agree to aid his closest friend in presenting the Culpeppers to society? Might it be because one particular fascinating Culpepper stirs more than his interest? Blythe taxes him to his limits with her sharp wit and even sharper tongue. Yet, he cannot deny the beauty captivates him like no other.
However, when a past enemy comes calling, using Blythe to settle old scores, Tristan must decide if restoring his family’s tarnished honor - something he’s worked toward for years - is more important than winning the heart of the woman he’s come to love.
