Overview

Maya Rodale's captivating new series introduces London's Least Likely--three wallflowers who are about to become the toast of the ton . . .

Lady Emma Avery has accidentally announced her engagement--to the most eligible man in England. As soon as it's discovered that Emma has never actually met the infamously attractive Duke of Ashbrooke, she'll no longer be a wallflower; she'll be a laughingstock. And then Ashbrooke does something Emma never expected. He plays along with her charade.

A temporary betrothal to the irreproachable Lady Avery could be just the thing to repair Ashbrooke's tattered reputation. Seducing her is simply a bonus. And then Emma does what he never expected: she refuses his advances. It's unprecedented. Inconceivable. Quite damnably alluring.

London's Least Likely to Misbehave has aroused the curiosity--among other things--of London's most notorious rogue. Now nothing will suffice but to uncover Emma's wanton side and prove there's nothing so satisfying as two perfect strangers . . . being perfectly scandalous together.

The year is 1824. Lady Emma Avery, a “buxom bluestocking” voted London’s Least Likely to Misbehave, is in her fourth season without a proposal. Blake Auden, Duke of Ashbrooke, is a notorious rake. They are both surprised when their engagement is announced, as they have never met. Blake quickly persuades Emma to join him at his Aunt Agatha’s Fortune Games, an annual contest to name her heir. If they win, Blake will gain the respectability he needs, and Emma will gain a marriage-attracting fortune. Rodale (Seducing the Single Lady) has created two strong characters with a realistic and not anachronistic outlook on life. While some deception is necessary to maintain their fiction, they never cross the line into betrayal. The book works best when Emma and Blake’s relationship is allowed to support the plot: there are some hints at abandoned subplots, and a false attempt to create external tension, but these weaker moments pass quickly. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (Nov.)
