Now or Never. . .
It's the last chance for Cynthia Brightly, the ton's most bewitching belle. Driven out of London by a secret scandal, she must find a grand husband at the Redmonds' house party before word of her downfall spreads all over England. Unfortunately, someone at Pennyroyal Green is already privy to the whispers of broken engagements and dueling lovers: Miles Redmond, renowned explorer and—thanks to his brother's disappearance—heir to the family's enormous fortune.
Miles set his sights on Cynthia once, at a time when the ambitious beauty thought herself too good for a second son. But now he's heir apparent, relishing his control. He strikes a bargain with her: he'll keep Cynthia's steamy secrets and help her find a husband among the guests—in exchange for a single kiss.
What could be the harm in a simple kiss? Cynthia is about to discover that it's enough to unleash fierce passion—and that Miles Redmond is most certainly like no other lover in the world.

Best book i have read all year!
I laughed, i cried, i loved this book. I couldn't stop reading.
A Sigh Worthy Romance!
I didn’t think it was possible for Ms. Long’s romances to get any better than the last one I read. I was wrong. Her stories just keep getting better and better. Miles, an heir who will be disinherited if he doesn’t marry according to his father’s dictates, and Cynthia, who is an impoverished woman with a scandalous past, have an uphill battle accepting their mutual attraction for each other because of Miles’ father’s request that he marry the wealthy daughter of a family friend. Ms. Long has no equal in writing about a Regency couple’s sense of duty, desires, frustrations and inevitable surrender to the power of love. I was rooting for Miles and Cynthia from the get go and was holding my breath way too long through many scenes in their love story…until finally they achieved their well-deserved happiness. This is definitely a sigh-worthy romance!
