A phony engagement turns into real passion in this delightful Regency romance from award-winning author Anne Gracie.

Fate has lavished beauty on the Merridew sisters-that is, all save the eldest. But plain Prudence bears no grudge; she loves her four beautiful sisters infinitely. So when their abusive grandfather is laid up with an injury, she seizes the opportunity to concoct an ingenious plan that will allow all five of them to escape the clutches of their legal guardian. All it will take is a little matrimonial deception . . .

A renowned rake, Gideon, Lord Carradice, has a way of making ladies swoon. But when Prudence arrives at his doorstep and mistakes him for his cousin, the Duke, it is Gideon who's infatuated. The delightful spitfire claims she and the Duke are engaged-although a taller tale was never told. In spite of the lies, Gideon is so taken with charming Prudence that he's eager to join her game, especially if it will award him a stolen kiss or two. Now, Prudence's plot is about to go terribly, albeit deliciously, awry . . .

Contains mature themes.

A delightful regency romp with lashings of the authors characteristic humour. The Merridew sisters are forced to flee from their abusive guardian and fall under the influence of a renowned rake. Passions blossom, especially between Prudence and rake Gideon, even though Prudence has been engaged to an absent suitor for several years. A tangled web of innocent intrigue ensues, providing Gideon with some stimulating challenges. Good triumphs in the end as Patience finds true love. A very enjoyable listen .... highly recommended

Adored the book - so well written, so witty, and I’m so pleased it’s a series. I’ll be listening to those next! Very excited to read more from the author too. Love the narrator. I’ve listened to audiobooks read by her before and was delighted to hear her voice again.

Thoroughly enjoyed this read! Loved the humor and found myself chuckling out loud at several points. Clever story with lots of twists that kept me engaged. The narrator was excellent and really brought the story to life. This is the first Anne Gracie book that I’ve read and really looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Highly recommend!
