Publisher Description

A SHOCKING DECEPTION . . .
Josephine Carlisle, adopted daughter of a baron, is officially on the shelf. But the silly, marriage-minded misses in the ton can have their frilly dresses and their seasons in London, for all she cares. Josie has her freedom and her family . . . until an encounter with a dark, devilishly handsome stranger leaves her utterly breathless at a house party. His wicked charm intrigues her, but that's where it ends. For Josie has a little secret . . .

. . . Leads to an Excuisite Seduction
Espionage was Thomas Matteson, Marquess of Chesney's game-until a tragic accident cost him his career. Now to salvage his reputation and return to the life he loves, the marquess must find the criminal who's been robbing London's rich and powerful. He's no fool-he knows Josie, with her wild chestnut hair and rapier-sharp wit, is hiding something and he won't rest until he unravels her mysteries, one by one. But he never expected to be the one under arrest-body and soul . . .

Rosemary_Pennington ,

Loved this book!

This is the 2nd book I have read from this author. She had definitely earned a spot on my "keepers" shelves.

Josie and Thomas were a pleasure to read. I was surprised by the author's insight on someone suffering what we now know as PTSD. My step-father was a WWII veteran, and I can clearly remember his reactions to noises and surprises. Ms. Harrington got the details spot on, in my opinion.

Josie is carrying some well guarded secrets of her own. I love how her mind works regarding the world she grew up in. She doesn't sugar coat, but, she doesn't bemoan her lot in life either. She is a strong minded woman, not a shrinking violet. When you add a woman like this- to a man like that, you cannot help but to fall in love. As they blunder their way through courtship, you get to laugh, pine, and hope right along side of them.

The standouts of the story, for me, were Josie's brothers. I secretly hope Ms. Harrington would consider putting those oafs in the sights of Cupid's bow. It would be great to see them "come to heel" as the marriage-minded mama's would say.

When you find a romance writer who throws a bit of a mystery at you, it is easy to get hooked.

This book is a great read. I don't feel you need to read the books in order to find each story enjoyable. I certainly didn't. Her writing style fresh, funny, and HOT, in all of the right places. She is easily in the same league as Lisa Kleypas, Johanna Lindsey, and Nicole Jordan. I am following her on FB just so I know when new books are coming.
