When the Duke of Lexington meets the mysterious Baroness von Seidlitz-Hardenberg on a transatlantic liner, he is fascinated. She's exactly what he's been searching for--a beautiful woman who interests and entices him. He falls hard and fast--and soon proposes marriage.

And then she disappears without a trace...

For in reality, the "baroness" is Venetia Easterbrook--a proper young widow who had her own vengeful reasons for instigating an affair with the duke. But the plan has backfired. Venetia has fallen in love with the man she despised--and there's no telling what might happen when she is finally unmasked...

These people are not smart.

First of all, Christopher's damning confession at the lecture. I thought he was supposed to be a man of science? He used anecdotal evidence as facts and then generalized it to women of beauty. I had bells ringing in my head when I was reading that part, and I feel like I was more acutely affected because I have been a student of science and research all my life.

Secondly, Venetia's plan of revenge. What? Did she thought him a piece of cardboard who would not have two brain cells to rub and figure things out? Or the emotional investment she would have?

Lastly, that reconciliation with those two gossip girls. That was embarrassingly cheesy and I cringed a little bit when they talked about their reputation as gossipers.

Fantastic romance from a fantastic writer. Thomas is such a pleasure to read because of her unusual main characters -- they always have real personalities and great quirks -- her excellent love scenes, which can be steamy even with little detail, and the wonderful relationships she builds.

boring read - characters interchange with her other books - The Luckiest Lady in London which was so bad
