Will he secure his future by ruining hers, or will she ruin his plans by securing him? A new twist on the old fortune hunter plot puts an impoverished earl in a position to gain his fortune only by ruining an innocent's reputation without offering marriage. The innocent he's selected, however, has no plans to settle for anything less than marriage and will go to almost any length to secure him.
With no other means for an income, the impoverished Andrew Black, Earl of Townson, makes an agreement that will put a definite end to his eight year poverty streak. But, in order to gain his fortune he must do only one simple thing: ruin an innocent young lady’s reputation enough to make her flee to America.
Brooke Banks isn’t interested in marriage, or so she thinks. She came to London to have a good time, and that’s exactly what she’s doing. Widely known for her tendency to flout the rules, she suspects nothing when a handsome stranger appears on her doorstep.
Thirteen days, a handful of kisses and one scandalous situation later, Andrew and Brooke will have to choose to stick to their original plans, or decide if a life together is worth the risk.

Good story. Just the right intrigue, humor & romance.
The plot was well thought out. The characters were strong and had an independent flare. I like that the woman were strong and respected by the men in their family, and that when someone try to cause trouble they stuck together. I also like that the characters were well rounded and had more then one dimension.
Great historical romance, could not put it down.
it was ok
i liked the beginning even the middle parts of the book, but when it came to the most crucial parts of the book towards the end …the author spent so much time on elaborating on things that really did not need explanation. Also, the explanation of how Benjamin and Andrew are related was confusing, I had to read those paragraphs over and over again…Then, using the word ‘fetching’ that was just annoying better choice of words besides fetching ugh.
