Description from Amazon.com:
WILL THE ROGUE’S PERFECT PLAN . . . Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, has no desire to wed, this season or any other. So when his father demands he give up his wild ways and take a wife, Colin refuses. But his father raises the stakes and threatens to sell the ancestral home if Colin doesn’t comply. Now Colin has no choice but to find a wife. Unfortunately, the only woman he wants is the one whose heart he broke years ago.
LEAD TO THE PERFECT SEDUCTION? Regardless of the ton‘s whispers, Lady Angeline Brenham won’t settle for anything less than true love. After rejecting more than her share of suitable suitors, spinsterhood looms before her-until the devilishly handsome Colin reappears in her life with a proposition. Angeline vows to keep her feet on the ground and her heart in check. That is, until one searing kiss melts her resolve and reignites a burning desire for more . . .
So much for book descriptions…Angeline cried off on her engagement to a dastardly rogue who tarnished her reputation and the Ton has been on her case ever since. She pretty much resigned herself to spinsterhood. While at a house party with old family friends, Colin’s family, she endeavors to help Colin secure his ancestral home. They agree to a trial engagement for a marriage of convenience that doesn’t look to be working out.
Ms Dreiling has come up with an original plot, characters we can sympathize with and some very hot and steamy scenes. There are interesting side characters; Colin’s apparently grumpy and obstinate father, his sweet stepmother, Angeline’s father who is wracked with guilt over Angeline’s former engagement gone wrong and siblings that are looking forward to their debut. This is a lovely romance novel with all the will-she or won’t-she that we love, and a hunky handsome hero that reforms before our eyes.
