Penelope Prestwick wants the Duke of Edenham for a husband, but figuring out how to dazzle him is no easy matter. Courtesan-turned- matchmaker Lady Dalby figures a bit of competition might do nicely...

Library Journal

Precise, logical Penelope Prestwick is determined to marry a duke, and who better to make it happen than Lady Sophia Dalby, a former courtesan and aristocratic matchmaker par excellence? With the Duke of Edenham firmly in her sights, Penelope heeds Sophia's veiled hint and asks the Marquis of Iveston to feign interest in her in order to intrigue her quarry. The results, of course, are a foregone conclusion, but Penelope, for all her intelligence, doesn't quite get it. VERDICT Funny, superbly sensual, and filled with sassy wit and appealing characters, this rewarding story, the fourth in Dain's delicious "Courtesan Chronicles," will be in demand. Dain (The Courtesan's Wager) lives in North Carolina.
