He's on the hunt for a bride . . .
Adam Faramond, Earl of Rothbury, needs to find a wife--immediately --or his beloved grandmother will leave him penniless. But Adam, an unrepentant rake, would reform for only one woman, the woman he's lusted after--and loved--for years. It's rather unfortunate, then, that Miss Charlotte Greene would never consent to be the blushing bride of a rogue . . . or so he thinks.
Charlotte believes that the earl, the only man whose touch leaves her trembling, would never want a woman like her. Weary of her wallflower ways, Charlotte decides that a friendship with the earl just might give her the excitement she desires. Keeping their true feelings hidden, she and Adam plan a sham ceremony to placate the dowager. But when the "marriage of convenience" takes an unexpected turn, will Charlotte and her wicked earl finally reveal their irresistible, unforgettable love--and delight in a lifetime of passion?

Ms. Parker has written a delightful read with sparkling characters, especially Charlotte. She is a riot with her witty and clever conversations with herself. Then add the dialogue between Charlotte and Adam and a slightly nutty grandmother and you have a winning combination.
