The School for Brides stands on its principles- turn comely courtesans into proper wives. But the newest in Cheryl Ann Smith's ravishing Regency series finds a respectable lady playing the part of a seasoned lover-in a turnabout games of seduction and irresistible intrigue . . . Eager to save a bride-in-training from arrest, Lady Noelle Seymour sneaks into a stranger's bedroom to return a stolen necklace-only to lock eyes with Gavin Blackwell, cousin of the Earl of Seabrook. Since the truth of her nocturnal visit could land both women in jail, Noelle offers a desperate excuse- She's there as his new courtesan. To save her innocence, she must quickly replace the necklace and flee, having already aroused more than his suspicion. Gavin has a lot to learn about London society, but a female housebreaker offering her seductive services is beyond the unexpected. When she vanishes, Gavin tracks her down and demands she make good on her proposition. However, there's more at stake than Noelle's virtue. That unfortunate night in Gavin's room has made her an unwitting pawn in the treacherous fame of a woman scorned, and now only Gavin can protect her-in every way he desires . . .
