Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh weaves a sensuous spell of romance that brings together the unlikeliest pair of lovers in the unlikeliest place of all-an infamous London house of pleasure.

She was unlike any woman hed ever met in the ton or the demimonde. But Sir Gerald Stapleton frequented Mrs. Blyths euphemistically dubbed “finishing school” for pure, uncomplicated pleasure-and nothing else. So why was this confirmed bachelor so thoroughly captivated by one woman in particular? Why did he find himself wondering how such a rare jewel of grace, beauty, and refinement as Priss had ended up a courtesan? And when she needed protection, why did Gerald, whod sworn hed never get entangled in affairs of the heart, hasten to set her up as his own pampered mistress to ensure her safety-and have her all to himself?

For Priscilla Wentworth, the path leading to Sir Geralds bed had been as filled with misfortune as it suddenly seemed charmed. But Priss couldnt allow herself to believe shed ever be more to a man like Sir Gerald than a well-cared-for object of pleasure. Now, despite Geralds deep distrust of marriage, neither scandal nor societys censure can keep them apart-only the fear of trusting their hearts.

I loved this story. Both the hero and the heroine are slightly flawed humans, not the usual stuff of romance novels. Yet their flaws bring about a sort of understanding of them that I have seldom found in a novel. They find a haven of comfort in each other that helps them weather the storms of their past. Bravo for the courage to write about Gerald and Prissy.
