The last woman on earth he would ever touch . . .

Declan, the Duke of Banbury, has no interest in ushering Rosalie Hughes, his stepsister, into society.Dumped on him with nowhere else to go, he's determined to rid himself of the headstrong debutante by bestowing on her an obscenely large dowry . . . making her the most sought-after heiress of the Season.

. . . is about to become the only one he wants

But Rosalie isn't about to go along with Declan's plans. Surrounded by fortune hunters, how is she supposed to find a man who truly wants her? Taking control of her fate, Rosalie dons a disguise and sneaks into Sodom, a private club host to all manner of illicit activity—and frequented by her infuriatingly handsome stepbrother.

In a shadowed alcove, Declan can't resist the masked temptress who sets his blood afire . . . any more than Rosalie can deny her longing for a man who will send her into ruin.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 16, 2014 – Jordan (How to Lose a Bride in One Night) tackles the discomfiting topic of step-sibling romance in this series launch. Rosalie Hughes was raised with Declan until his father kicked him out at age 14. Now he's the eighth Duke of Banbury, and Rosalie is the one who's been cast off (by her widowed mother). Declan reluctantly accepts responsibility for Rosalie, outfitting her with a wardrobe, dowry, and chaperons, but he intends to marry her off ASAP. Rosalie, of course, wants more than the first illustrious name who comes calling, and is willing to be outrageous to get her way. There's little feel for Regency period details or mores, and even less nuance Declan's stepmother is named Melisande, for those who need extra help identifying the villain. Even though it's not a keeper, the story has enough verve and sizzle for a reasonably entertaining afternoon at the beach.

Customer Reviews

Loved it!

loved this book! I've read other books by Sophie Jordan and have enjoyed them as well. Declan and Rosalie have known each other for years when his father married Rosalie's mother. When Declan was 15 his father sent him away and later Rosalie was sent away to boarding school. Ten years later Rosalie shows up on his door step and turns Declan's world upside down. Ms. Jordan wrote a storyline that I've not read in a historical romance before and she did it quite well. It was heartbreaking to read. Well done Sophie Jordan. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
