Daphne, the most beautiful of the Armitage sisters, finds herself caught between two men: one with whom she feels safe and a more dangerous attraction. Life becomes more complicated when one of them threatens her family, but the scandalous Lady Godolphin is there to help her. These aren't typical Regency novels and they're an awful lot of fun. ( )

Book description
THREE SISTERS ALREADY BRILLIANTLY MARRIED? EVEN DAPHNE COULD NOT LIVE UP TO THAT.

Black-haired, exquisite Daphne Armitage embarked on her first Season with secret dread. For though she had long since learned the power of her flawless beauty, she shrank from the open competition of the marriage mart. Better to marry her first suitor, the fastidious Cyril Archer, and be done with it. She is certain she can avoid the turmoil of true love by demanding nothing more of a husband than to be an elegant companion.

But when Mr Simon Garfield, notable and wealthy Corinthian, agitates Daphne's calm outward manner, the results are dramatic and delightful! He falls in love with the lively girl bubbling beneath the veneer of her beauty, and Daphne's resolve is tested... that is, until the vain Mr. Archer threatens to reveal a family scandal so horrible that marriage seems a small price to pay for Daphne to keep the secret.
