“One of the finest and most delightful writers in romance.” –Mary Jo Putney
What’s a girl to do, when her father, known as Devil Desmond, is one of the most infamous rogues in all of England? Delilah Desmond is not happy. To provide for her, her father has sold his memoirs, filled with scandalous and embarrassing exploits—effectively ruining her chances for a suitable marriage, so she can support her family while saving her father from disgrace.
But it seems the manuscript is in demand by all sorts of unscrupulous persons, and preventing its publication is going to be impossible; especially now that it has been stolen. Can the hot-tempered Delilah and her very unwilling accomplice, absent-minded, bookish, Jack Langdon with his soft grey eyes and tousled hair, salvage the disaster? It appears that deceptively quiet Jack may have a core of steel—and be the one man smart and strong enough to be the hero she’d been hoping for all along.
Must be an early effort
A bit hard o follow the plot. I like this author, and this wasn't her best.
A good story ruined by the spacing
Don't worry, if you're new to this book--this is a good story, a fun romp.
I'm reading this a decade or more after it was first published, on paper. My enjoyment of a crazy courtship was intermittent sudden changes of scene.
Seems that spacing in the paper version between scenes didn't transfer to the electronic form, and I would get seriously confused when one paragraph concerned one set of people, and the next had none of those.
I hope the interscene spacing is corrected at some point.
