Description from Amazon.com:
What woman in her right mind would say no to marrying the dashing Duke of Sedgemoor? Miss Penelope Thorne, that’s who. She’s known Camden Rothermere since they were children-and she also knows she’d bring nothing but scandal to his name.
Cam can hardly believe Penelope turned down his proposal. But if she wants to run off to the Continent and set the rumor mill ablaze, he can’t stop her. Then her brother’s dying request sends him to bring home the one woman he thought he’d finally gotten over.
The only way they’ll both get back to London without their reputations in tatters is to pretend they’re married during the journey. That means kissing like they mean it and even sharing a bed-until it becomes hard to tell where the game ends and true desire begins . . .
Where have I been??? Anna Campbell can write a fabulous romance novel and this is the first time I’ve discovered one of her books. Okay, that’s a lie….I have had another of her books on my TBR pile for like forever, now I can’t wait to read that one.
Cam and Pen’s relationship is just full of unrequited love, at least for Penelope. Cam seems to think that love is not in his stars and he wants no part of a “love” relationship. Poor, misguided man. He falls in love without knowing that is the label to place on it and denies love until it is almost too late for him to save his relationship with Pen.
Delicious! Yup, so yummy you will eat this book up. One taste isn’t enough. I have to go and read all of Ms. Campbell’s back list.
