"Her wicked ways were the talk of the ton"
Teresa, Dowager Marchioness of Darent, is rumored to have exhausted her four deceased husbands with her insatiable needs. So it's no surprise that every rake in the ton wants to bed her. If they only knew...through clever marriages to men who would ask nothing of her physical self, Tessa has remained rather innocent in the ways of the bedroom. But now she's on the verge of losing everything and wants to take care of the stepson she's grown to adore.
Enter Captain Owen Purchase. The handsome American adventurer has come into the title of Viscount Rothbury. And the rumors surrounding his injuries at sea suggest that he could fit Tessa's requirements. But little does Tessa realize that the gossipmongers are wrong. She just might lose her heart, and her desires, to the most unlikely of men....

The fifth scandalous heroine in Cornick’s popular historical series is thrice-widowed Tess Derant, a woman with a checkered past and a secret that can land her in jail. Reluctantly, she begins to seek husband number four. Prospects look dim until the lady literally falls into the lap of handsome American expat Owen Purchase, viscount Rothbury. The man possesses important qualities that meet Tess’s needs: once they’re married, no one can legally force him to reveal her secret identity, and a sensitive battle injury may have left him unable to consummate their union. The lovely blonde boldly proposes a marriage of convenience that Owen is hard-pressed to refuse, given both her wealth and her beauty. Cornick ably maneuvers the engaging characters through an intricate plot with her trademark lively narrative style. (Dec.)
