Since being named “London’s Lord to Land” by a popular ladies’ magazine, Nicholas St. John has been relentlessly pursued by every matrimony-minded female in the ton. So when an opportunity to escape fashionable society presentsitself, he eagerly jumps—only to land in the path of the most determined, damnably delicious woman he’s ever met!
The daughter of a titled wastrel, Lady Isabel Townsend has too many secrets and too little money. Though she is used to taking care of herself quite handily, her father’s recent passing has left Isabel at sea and in need of outside help to protect her young brother’s birthright. The sinfully handsome, eminently eligible Lord Nicholas could be the very salvation she seeks.
But the lady must be wary and not do anything reckless and foolish…like falling madly, passionately in love.

READ THIS COMMENT
Sarah Maclean is undoubtedly an extraordinary writer. I do not mean that she is the best writer, for that is a matter of opinion, but she does indeed formulate some of the best plots I have ever read.
Historical romance novels typically follow a certain pattern, and for those that are avid readers of this genre, you understand. Yet, the leading man, Lord Nicholas, is not the typical rake or infamous lover. He is down to earth, and though some qualities to bug me, his character is entirely understandable.
Maclean has a talent, she is able to relay characters' emotions through her style. Some can do this, but few can style it as we'll as Maclean can.
The novel itself it suspenseful. Maclean, the reader, and the characters all undertake a journey, one that most will not forget.
And though I may be overanalyzing this, I believe Maclean always conveys a message in her work.
I strongly suggest you buy this, and her other works as well. Her characters have extraordinary depth and rationale (most), so they will most definitely intrigue the reader.
