Lord William Randall, the Duke of Clairemont, is a rake with little regard for society-a most unlikely suitor for Lady Lucinda Grey. But his latest assignment for the Young Corinthians, an elite spy organization, involves protecting her from a kidnapping plot. To do this, the notorious Iron Will; must use his devilish charm to seduce Lucinda and convince her he's worthy of her attention. William never planned to become enthralled by the lovely Lady Grey-or to lose his own heart in the bargain. Beautiful and fiercely intelligent, Lucinda has managed to gracefully sidestep even the most persistent suitors. Until the Duke of Clairemont, that is. She's tempted by his sinfully sensuous mouth and piercing eyes, and finds it hard to resist the champion thoroughbred he offers her in exchange for the honor of courting her. Can she keep him at arm's length when his touch begs her to let him so much closer? From the Paperback edition.
Sloane's delightful debut Regency features a spirited heroine and a daring leading man. Lady Lucinda Grey is surprised when William Randall, duke of Clairemont and a notorious rogue and heartbreaker, begins courting her. Little does she know that "Iron Will" is actually a member of the Corinthians, a top-secret English spy agency, and assigned to protect her from a kidnap plot masterminded by notorious French assassin Antoine Garenne. Lucinda only agrees to suffer Will's company because he promises her a prize racing horse, but soon she comes to see the man beyond the rumors and he learns to admire her spirit. The danger and misunderstandings all come undone in an action-filled climactic scene. Though veteran romance readers will not find the characters and plot particularly original, they will nonetheless be charmed by the opulent details and happy ending. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
