We met Catherine and Andrew in [Who Will Take this Man?]. Catherine has a secret...she is one of the authors behind the scandalous Guide that is taking London by storm. Andrew has been hired to find the author, so that the men of the Ton can get rid of him. Andrew is in love with Catherine and has been biding his time until she finally came out of morning for her husband. What follows is a fun story that will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next. I really enjoyed Andrew, although I found Catherine a bit tedious at times. Also Spencer was fantastic, Catherine's 11 year old son. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060536713, Mass Market Paperback)

An anonymous author has turned English society upside down, and only one man can protect her identity from being revealed, and her life from being destroyed, in this sexy new romance from reader favourite Jacquie D’Alessandro.

The scandalous book, A Ladies’ Guide to the Pursuit of Personal Happiness and Marital Fulfilment has taken English society by storm. The slim but erotically explicit volume was penned by an unknown author, and now all of London is trying to discover the mysterious writer’s true identity. But the search doesn’t scare Catherine Ashfield, Viscountess Bickley, the proper woman who transcribed the book for her dear friend, a very elderly and experienced widow. Disgusted by the shallow values and morals of the town, Catherine was excited to help her friend and set the uppity nobility on its ear. And maybe by giving women a little more knowledge they could finally have happier marriages, instead of loveless unions as she had her with her own late husband.

But Catherine didn’t anticipate the violent backlash against the book. With threats being made against the unknown author, Catherine fears for her safety and that of her son. When she is the victim of a near fatal accident, she wonders how hidden her identity truly is.

Knowing she needs protection, she turns to her brother’s best friend, an accomplished pugilist and fencer. She invites him to stay at her country estate under the guise of a simple visit, not realizing that she has invited a fugitive with a dangerous past into her home--a man she soon finds herself powerfully attracted to...
