A spirited debutante--a brash adventurer--the perfect fiancé--and good intentions gone terribly, deliciously bad. The Penhallow Dynasty continues in this sparkling Regency romp!Christopher Beck came striding into a glamorous London drawing-room and can&;t believe his eyes. The last time he&;d seen Gwendolyn Penhallow, she was a dreamy, strong-willed girl with a wild imagination, and now she&;s a beautiful and beguiling young lady . . . who&;s engaged to Society&;s darling the Earl of Westenbury. Christopher had fled England to seek adventure elsewhere. Has he found it here too &; the most delightful adventure of his life?Gwendolyn is sure she&;s betrothed to the most wonderful man in the world. But then, shockingly, Christopher Beck shows up. Nobody has heard from him in years &; and not only he is very much alive, he&;s also sinfully attractive, blithely unconventional, and disturbingly fun to be with. Which wouldn&;t be a problem, except for the fact that she&;s, well, promised to another. And just what on earth is she going to do about it?
