Overview
-Transporting- --The New York Times Book Review
From the superbly gifted Sherry Thomas comes this beautifully written romance about a marriage of convenience that turns inconveniently passionate...

Felix Rivendale, the Marquess of Wrenworth, is The Ideal Gentleman, a man all men want to be and all women want to possess. Even Felix himself almost believes this golden image. But underneath is a damaged soul soothed only by public adulation.
Louisa Cantwell needs to marry well to support her sisters. She does not, however, want Lord Wrenworth--though he seems inexplicably interested in her. She mistrusts his outward perfection, and the praise he garners everywhere he goes. Still, when he is the only man to propose at the end of the London season, she reluctantly accepts.
Louisa does not understand her husband's mysterious purposes, but she cannot deny the pleasure her body takes in his touch. Nor can she deny the pull this magnetic man exerts upon her. But does she dare to fall in love with a man so full of dark secrets, any one of which could devastate her, if she were to get any closer?

Thomas (Tempting the Bride) emphasizes the pitfalls of the aristocratic marriage bargaining game in Victorian England with this stellar trilogy launch. Felix Rivendale, Lord Wrenworth, is often called the Ideal Gentleman for his looks, wealth, and manners. He’s far above the reach of Louisa Cantwell, who must find a wealthy husband to help provide for her mother and four sisters. They meet at a ball and Felix is intrigued when Louisa unintentionally reveals her “infatuation” with him—and then just as clearly shuts it off. Their encounters, mostly carefully orchestrated by Felix, are full of sparkling wit and sensuous innuendo. While Louisa believes that she is falling in love with Felix, she knows better than to trust him, as he does nothing without a self-serving purpose. Thomas’s characters are intelligent and multidimensional, and each scene is expertly crafted and rich in details. Readers will be immersed in the story from the very first page until the breathtaking conclusion. Agent: Kristin Nelson, Nelson Literary Agency. (Nov.)
