This edition:  Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages


Kate Bergeron is the beautiful and mysterious former mistress of a cloth merchant…and the latest beauty to capture the interest of the Prince of Wales. Mired in a disastrous divorce, the Prince attempts to distract attention from his next amorous pursuit by ordering Grayson Christopher, the eligible Duke of Darlington, to pretend to London society that he is having an affair with Kate. When Grayson reluctantly agrees to his Prince’s demand, he finds the lady no more willing than he is. Kate will grudgingly act the part in public, but her favors are not for sale to any man. As Grayson and Kate mimic ardor for the world to see, they find what started as a deception becoming all too real. And when passion flames into love, their predicament becomes extreme. For while marriage between a duke and a courtesan could never happen, Kate knows in her heart that she is willing to accept nothing less….


I was eagerly waiting for this book, as I have never read any books of  “Julia London” before.  But I was really dissapointed,  I didn’t like the book at all.

It’s a very predictable love story between a Duke and a Courtesan -to-be!  and not only any Courtesan!  but the one who loves cooking and baking!  They hate each other first and then fall for each other and then they go public with their romance!!!!!! Any drama or suspense there???? No, just a plain old love story without any turn of events.

In favor of the author, the passionate scenes were well written, other wise the plot line is so bland I found myself skipping through pages..

I would personally not recommend this  book  to anybody, but if you love Julia London, get it from the library.

Thanks Sarah Reidy from PocketBooks for this book.
