Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Sophia White knows she will never marry into polite society. The illegitimate daughter of a nobleman, she works at the Tantalus Club, a discreet establishment for gentlemen--and her only suitor is a pastor who wants to save her soul. So when Sophia is invited to spend the holidays at the estate of Adam Baswich, the devilishly handsome Duke of Greaves, she is delighted--and determined to enjoy her last nights of freedom before surrendering her hand.... Inviting Sophia for Christmas is a daring courtesy on Adam's part, but he soon finds the pleasure is all his. Sophia is beautiful, courageous, and stubbornly self-sufficient despite her scandalous circumstances--and not at all the kind of woman he could possibly marry. Adam knows he must find a wife by his thirtieth birthday or he will lose his fortune. But can he defy convention--and convince Sophia--to risk it all in the name of true love?"--from cover, p. [4]

    *Starred Review* The clock is ticking for Adam Baswich, duke of Greaves. According to his father's will, he must marry by age 30 and be a father by 31, or all family holdings go to his nefarious, money-grabbing sister, Eustace, for her 12-year-old son. So Adam invites a group of eligible women to his estate for a holiday party. Sophia White, illegitimate daughter of the Duke of Hennessey, who loves working in Lady Haybury's Tantalus Club, has been given an edict by her father: marry a vicar of his choosing, or he'll close the club and send her friends into financial ruin. Said vicar intends to use Sophia as the perfect (or imperfect) example of a fallen woman and let his congregation practice their prayer for sinners on her. So when Sophia is summoned to attend Adam's house party, not as one of the wife candidates but as a favor to a mutual friend, she jumps at the chance. This welcome addition to the Scandalous Brides series (A Beginner's Guide to Rakes, 2011; Taming an Impossible Rogue, 2012) is quintessential Enoch, full of well-drawn characters, witty dialogue, and lots of intrigue.
