9780060536718: Love and the Single Heiress (Avon Historical Romance)

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...

About the Author:

Growing up on Long Island, New York, Jacquie D'Alessandro fell in love with romance at an early age. She dreamed of being swept away by a dashing rogue riding a spirited stallion. When her hero finally showed up, he was dressed in jeans and drove a Volkswagen, but she recognized him anyway. They married after both graduating from Hofstra University and are now living their happily-ever-afters in Atlanta, Georgia. They have one grown son, who is a dashing rogue in the making. The author of more than thirty historical and contemporary romances, Jacquie loves to hear from readers and can be contacted through her website.

From Publishers Weekly:

What's a man to do when he discovers the woman he's loved from afar for six years is more...headstrong than he supposed? Andrew Stanton has patiently waited for widowed Lady Catherine to emerge from mourning before pressing his suit, only to discover that in the meantime she's filled her head with the nonsense found in A Ladies' Guide to Personal Happiness and Intimate Fulfillment by Charles Brightmore, a man whose identity Andrew has been hired to expose by some of society's outraged husbands. But the path of true love is never smooth, and the large bumps in this couple's road include Lady Catherine's secret identity as the cowriter of the ladies' guide and a madman who lurks nearby. When Catherine is wounded by a gunshot and retires to the country with Andrew as her protection, Andrew seizes his opportunity to woo the reluctant heiress, whose heart was scorched by a bad first marriage, and to uncover unexpected information that may hold the key to his and Catherine's future happiness. Stuffed to the brim with D'Alessandro's (Who Will Take This Man?, etc.) trademark laugh-out-loud humor, this crowd-pleasing Regency-era romance gallops along in winning style, keeping readers in suspense until the exhilarating finish.
