Description from amazon.com:
The spirited Lady Victoria Lennox longs for a husband, but she cannot wed until her prickly older sister, Amelia, becomes a wife—and Amelia seems intent on driving away all potential suitors. To avoid becoming a spinster, Victoria concocts a plan: a carefully arranged scandal will compel Amelia to marry. And to bait the trap, who better than the dashing Lord Julius Cavendish?
Yet Julius has little interest in stubborn Amelia. Victoria, on the other hand, he finds irresistible. Determined to make her his own, Julius adds a new twist to Victoria’s plan: his friend Lord Withington will act as Victoria’s decoy suitor, distracting Amelia from the very real courtship happening under her nose. All might be well, were not Withington immediately smitten with Amelia. He sees how tender and protective she is beneath the frosty facade.
As the perfect plan goes perfectly awry, each sister finds herself publicly betrothed to the wrong man. Can they undo the damage in time to make the perfect match?
This delightful romp starts out like an Oscar Wilde farce giving the reader a few giggles and smiles. However, it soon becomes more of a drama as the secrets and deceptions cause misunderstandings and hurt.
Liana LeFey has concocted an easy read with dramatic undertones. Victoria is a bit of a flibbertigibbet and Amelia is certainly stiff and stuffy. The men who would woo them are the heroes we read romances to find. The characterizations are well done and the plot well developed. There is romance, sensuality, conflict and hard won resolution. A good read.
