The Weston siblings have been blessed with
Shakespearean names and an affinity for impropriety. Prepare to fall in love while discovering how the Westons are won.
Handsome, debonair and heir to his father’s title and wealth, Henry Weston leads a charmed life. Women want him, and men want to be him. Even so, Henry wants something more. For that he needs the help of society’s reigning wallflower.
Diana Merriwether is shocked when Henry proposes a mutually beneficial sham courtship. She can’t resist the opportunity to be wooed by him and, having sworn off love, she’s certain her heart is safe. But when their charade plays out behind closed doors and passions escalate, Diana fears she’s really fooling herself.
Henry is captivated by the fiery spirit concealed beneath Diana’s prim exterior. Before long, he wonders if the woman he never thought he’d want is the one he can no longer live without. Wooing this wallflower may be the hardest thing he’s ever done, but can he tempt Diana to take a risk and love a rogue?
Sara Lindsey began writing during her senior year of college. The rest, as they say, is history… or rather, historical romance. Along the way, Sara decided a girl could never have too many books in her life, so she picked up a graduate degree in library science. Having read many romances featuring librarians, she figures this profession bodes well for someday getting her own happily ever after. In the meantime, she lives in Los Angeles, where she plans to turn as many unsuspecting library patrons as possible into fellow romance addicts. www.saralindsey.net
