    Book details


Mary Balogh presents two of her classic Regency-era romances--seductive tales of ladies who are running away from love . . . and rogues who enjoy the chase.


Lady Sophia Bryant has no intention of marrying anytime soon. Her one desire is to reunite her parents, who have been estranged for fourteen years. Surely, if she happens to announce her betrothal--even a false one--they will be forced to see each other. Devilishly handsome Lord Francis Sutton seems perfect for such deceit, always agreeable to games of passion in which he has nothing to lose. The trap is set--if only Lady Sophia can keep her foolish heart from falling prey to her brilliant snares.


Lord Edmund Waite is everything that Lady Mary Gregg despises: lewd, lascivious, mocking--the most incorrigible and successful rogue around. A bluestocking like her would never tempt a man whose taste runs to pretty playthings--so Mary is startled to find herself the object of Lord Edmund's desires. Even more surprising is her reaction to his shocking advances. She may be a lady, but this man knows so well how to make her feel like a woman.

Review Text

  • By Bob Bull on 20 June 2017

    No problems all OK

  • By Guest on 18 July 2017

    Two very satisfactory novels

  • By East End Lady on 1 September 2013

    Both the books are lively reads but it is quite evident that the author has improved since she wrote them . The first book is rather silly, It is quite evident that the happy pair are not truly engaged, but protest a great deal about having no real affection. It runs along at a good pace but the reader feels rather unconvinced by their sham romance, and the outcome is too obvious. The second book is more successful .It starts with a mutual seduction and plots the tensions and the emotional commitment building up following the sexual attraction. Underlying both books are two family estrangements, each lasting fifteen years! This seemed to me rather excessive.

  • By J Millington on 22 June 2013

    The author lives up to expectations with these two novels... thoroughly enjoyed them. Looking forward to her next novels to be printed.

  • By Catherine Joyce on 1 July 2013

    Lighter weight than some of Mary Balogh's work, but as always highly enjoyable, with sympathetic characters and a believable plot.

  • By Mrs. V. A. Petley-shaw on 15 November 2013

    Did not like the first story as much as the second just did not flow. the second story was more likw her flowed and kept you eadingI could not put it downdown

  • By Mrs. S. Hall on 6 October 2013

    I enjoy historical novels and this one did not disappoint either. Two stories in the book, although only slightly connected the stories were great reads.

  • By Dani on 16 August 2014

    They are OK and good fun. I enjoyed them while reading them but they are instantly forgettable. I wasn't bored! Not Mary Balogh at her best.
