Summary

To rescue her friend from a loveless marriage, a daring woman dons a disguise and finds herself captivated by a mysterious rake in this "perfect Regency romance" from award-winning author Anne Gracie.

In three years on the marriage market, Grace Merridew has never met a man whose kiss stirred her senses. So she makes plans for a life of adventure instead - to see the moon rise over the pyramids of Egypt and dance amid the marble ruins of Greece. But first she must help a friend in need....

Timid Melly Pettifer is being forced to marry Dominic Wolfe, who stands to inherit a huge estate if he weds. The Wolfes have a terrible reputation, and if there's one thing Grace cannot stand, it's a bully. When Melly begs for assistance in escaping her impending nuptials, Grace acts as the plain and mousy chaperone on their visit to the groom-to-be. But when they arrive nothing is as they expect, and Grace is scandalized to find herself being pursued by a big bad Wolfe....

Contains mature themes.

Too many Inconsistencies.

The heroine comes from a family that believed in their mother's dream. A dream that helped them survive their brutal early life.
Suddenly this dream doesn't count, she believes her evil Grandfather without asking her sisters.
The Hero's property has managed to survive generations of evil and good owners. The Question is; is it entailed or not? If it is, then it can't be sold or mortgaged. Even if the family is heavily in debt and starving. Nor can the Heir be prevented from owning the property, once the previous incumbent is dead. No complicated wills or arranged marriages can prevent it. If not entailed, how did it manage to survive the years of turmoil? Why was he looking into Entailment?
Since these two major inconsistency are the root of the story, everything else is rather pointless.
However, if you can ignore them and other minor inconsistencies, then it is worth listening to.
The supporting characters new and old help the story to have body.

Believe your mother.

An heir willing to do the work to determine who is the right woman for him.
