Publisher's Summary

A Lady Dreaming of Love

Lady Genevieve Farendale has a scandalous past. Jilted at the altar years earlier and exiled by her family, she's now returned to London to prove she can be a proper lady. Even though she's not given up on the hope of marrying for love, she's wary of trusting again. Then she meets Cedric Falcot, the Marquess of St. Albans, whose seductive ways set her heart aflutter. But with her sordid history, Genevieve knows a rake can also easily destroy her.

An Unlikely Pairing

What begins as a chance encounter between Cedric and Genevieve becomes something more. As they continue to meet, passions stir. But with Genevieve's hope for true love, she fears Cedric will be unable to give up his wayward lifestyle. After all, Cedric has spent years protecting his heart and keeping everyone out. Slowly, she chips away at all the walls he's built, but when he falters, Genevieve can't offer him redemption. Now it's up to Cedric to prove to Genevieve that the love of a man is far more powerful than the lure of a rake.

    Any additional comments?

    Fairly good story but the parents of both H/h just should not have been portrayed as so incredibly bad- I think the author did an overkill on that part. I guess the author made them so bad in order to support the plot line (people severely damaged by their upbringing by vicious parents). The story was engaging but was not at all believable. I never could figure out if the heroine was plain or beautiful and could not accept that the brief meeting of the H/h in the library could support such great attraction. In retrospect, I don't think I would have purchased this book if I had know more about it.
