Publisher Comments:

A dutiful woman, a desirable man ...

An artist with a keen eye for the beauty surrounding her — yet none for her own — duty-bound Claudia is resigned to marrying the man of her domineering father's choosing. First, though, she must resign the job she has held in secret as society illustrator "C. J. Prattley." But dashing newspaper owner Derrick Middleton is instantly captivated by Claudia's talent, wit, and sweet nature — and the passionate inner fire she unknowingly possesses. He has other plans for this extraordinary woman.

Until Claudia first entered his London office, Derrick cared for only his paper and the wild bachelor life he has long enjoyed. Now saving Claudia from a dismal marriage — and winning her for himself — becomes his main concern. But courting a woman like Claudia will not be an easy undertaking for a handsome cynic who has always believed true love is not for him — especially after they succumb to an indiscretion that could lead two hearts to ruin ... of a most delicious variety.

Synopsis:

After a lifetime of chafing under her domineering father's high expectations, Claudia Prattley is determined to finally please him by marrying the man of his choosing, but a dashing rogue is hell bent on foiling her plans.

Derrick Middleton hides a heart wounded by betrayals, but he's drawn to Claudia's enchanting combination of passion and trustandndash;andndash;not to mention her artistic talent. Simmering beneath their lightandndash;hearted banter, desires stir that grow more irresistible with every encounter. And the more they explore the sensuality that ignites between them, the more she challenges his cynical belief that love is not for him. But when her loyalties to her father threaten their newfound trust, they must risk everything to claim the love that will heal their hearts.

Synopsis:

In this breathtaking debut novel, popular society illustrator Claudia is duty-bound to marry the man of her domineering father's choosing. But her dashing employer, newspaper owner Derrick Middleton, has other plans for her future--and her heart. Original.

About the Author

Robyn DeHart always knew she wanted to be a writer, but it took a while to discover precisely what she wanted to write. Reading Kathleen Woodiwiss's A Rose in Winter sealed the deal, and she's been reading and writing romance ever since. She should have realized she was destined for this career when her Barbies insisted on hosting elaborate masquerade parties, complete with stolen kisses in the moonlight. Researching her novels is always exciting, but when it involves eating chocolate, it's especially sweet. She lives in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee, with her incredibly supportive husband and two very spoiled cats. She loves to hear from readers.
