Summary
"In the social whirl of Regency England, Elizabeth Chudderley is at the top of every guest list, the life of every party, and the belle of every ball. But her friends and admirers would be stunned to know the truth: that the merriest widow in London is also the loneliest. Behind the gaiety and smiles lies a secret longing--for something, or someone, to whisk her away.... Raised in scandal, Lord Michael de Grey is convinced that love is a losing gamble--and seduction the only game worth playing. But when duty threatens to trump everything he desires, the only way out is marriage to a woman of his brother's choosing. Elizabeth Chudderley is delightful, delicious--and distressingly attractive. With such a captivating opponent, Michael isn't quite sure who is winning the game. How can such passionate players negotiate a marriage of necessity--when their hearts have needs of their own?"

Review
When recluse Lord Alastair, Duke of Marwick, threatens to cut off his younger brother’s income and close his charity hospital unless he marries a woman of whom Alastair approves, second son and physician Lord Michael de Grey decides to rusticate to Cornwall, becoming, as Mr. Grey, the local doctor’s backup. There he meets the infamous widow, Mrs. Elizabeth Chudderley, who, because of her late husband’s spendthrift ways, is surreptitiously looking for a wealthy suitor to keep her estate and household intact. As they become closer, such as when she assists at a tenant’s caesarean section, they realize that although they are in love, they can’t be together. When Elizabeth throws a party, inviting several available bachelors, she’s shocked to find that Michael is more than a rural physician, but is, in fact, titled. This discovery means nothing, however, since both are still poor and she has a reputation that Alastair won’t like. How Duran (Your Wicked Heart, 2012) brings about a happy ending will enchant romance readers who yearn for a clever tale. -- Henshaw, Pat (Reviewed 02-01-2013) (Booklist, vol 109, number 11, p33)
