Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 144048175X, Paperback)Book 4, The Jonquil Brothers Series. Jason Jonquil can't go anywhere, it seems, without hearing at least one of his many brothers praised to the skies. He is hard working and accomplished, but no one seems to notice. Especially Miss Mariposa Thornton. On the surface, she seems quite empty-headed. But Jason is certain she is hiding something. Initially, he wants nothing more than to be rid of the exasperating lady. But as her mask begins to slip, he finds himself wishing she saw him in the same way the world sees his brothers: as a gentleman worthy of admiration, respect and love.

London barrister Jason Jonquil has spent his entire life working to establish his identity as a man of refinement, like his father and brothers. But when fiery Spanish beauty Mariposa Thornton walks into his office, he finds himself losing his grasp on his dignified character. The woman is infuriating and pushes him to the end of his patience. Her case seems simple enough. It's only a small matter of inheritance, or so he believes ... Once a well-born lady, Mariposa fought to survive the brutalities of Napoleon's war on Spain. Now, Mariposa sets in motion a plan to reunite with her loved ones in England. To avoid drawing the attention of the French, Mariposa dons a carefully crafted persona to conceal her true purpose. Drawn together by the case, Jason and Mariposa come to know the person beneath the masks they both wear. But when the truth of Mariposa's quest is revealed, the couple is pulled into a mystery that will test the limits of their courage--and expose the true desire of their hearts.--
