How does one seduce a bride?
Step One: Lay bare her mysteries...
Daisy Tanner has taken the ton by storm and Leland Grant, Viscount Haye, wants to know everything about this ravishing, secretive woman who is tempting his friend into marriage. Though his rakish reputation is the stuff of legend, Leland is curiously undone by this exquisite creature who threatens to turn his footloose single life topsy–turvy. Never has he wanted a woman more...
Step Two: Strip her of her inhibitions...
Having survived a difficult past, Daisy now desires the security of an uncomplicated marriage with some safe, undemanding gentleman. How dare this dashing rogue Lord Haye distract her with his suspicions...and unbalance her with his sensuous promises? If Daisy isn't careful, her scandalous history could become common knowledge. Worse still, she might actually fall in love with this notorious seducer whose touch excites her like nothing has before...

Edith Layton loved to write. She wrote articles and opinion pieces for the New York Times and Newsday, as well as for local papers, and freelanced writing publicity before she began writing novels.
Publisher’s Weekly called her “one of romance’s most gifted authors.” She received many awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Romantic Times, and excellent reviews and commendations from Library Journal, Romance Readers Anonymous, and Romance Writers of America. She also wrote historical novels under the name Edith Felber.
Mother of three grown children, she lived on Long Island with her devoted dog, Miss Daisy; her half feral parakeet, Little Richard; and various nameless pond fish in the fishness protection program.From Publishers Weekly:
Layton's satisfying finale to her popular Botany Bay series reunites readers with familiar characters and brings well-deserved love into heroine Daisy Tanner's life. Expecting freedom after the death of her wicked husband, Botany Bay prison guard Tanner, Daisy realizes that a single woman, especially a wealthy young widow, is not free in 19th-century Australia. So she leaves New South Wales for England, hoping to marry the widowed Geoffrey Sauvage, earl of Egremont. Because Geoffrey is twice her age, Daisy assumes he will care for her "like a father or a friend," a welcome respite from the brutality Tanner inflicted on her. Geoffrey graciously welcomes Daisy but has no interest in marriage; he charges his best friend Leland Grant, the mischievous, debonair Viscount Haye, with instructing Daisy in the ways of the ton so that she can "find a good man to take care of her." Leland, suspicious of Daisy's motives toward Geoffrey, wants to protect his friend from betrayal—but as they become closer, it's Leland who courts betrayal by losing his heart to Daisy. Layton is an expert craftswoman, proved once again by tight plotting, sprightly dialogue and very human characters. (June)
