I have always been a big fan of Caroline Linden, and have read almost all of her books. The story opens with the heroine Penelope Weston sitting with the wallflowers and spinsters at a ball, and wishing she was anywhere else. In walks the hero Benedict Lennox, Lord Atherton, the man who was engaged to Penelopes sister Abigail. When Penelope finds out he is looking for another bride she sabotages his chances. Benedict is furious and goes looking for Penelope and rescues her from being raped by a nasty lord. When the scandal breaks Penelope and Benedict have to decide how to make it go away. I loved this book from the first page. The plot is intriguing and there is lots of secrets, there are sensual love scenes that will leave you breathless. Carolines writing is captivating and addictive. This is a keeper and now I have to get the other in this series that I haven't read yet. Do not miss Caroline Linden's books!!!
