From Publishers Weekly The twisting paths of love and duty collide in this engrossing and lively romance introducing Miss Sophie Harlow, a journalist whose column has taken 19th-century London by storm. Sophie, herself recently jilted at the altar, has reluctantly taken on the newspaper's task of writing about weddings, and is invited to cover the marriage of the handsome "double duke" of Brandon and Hamilton to Lady Clarissa Richmond. The moment Brandon and Sophie lay eyes on each other, the chemistry is undeniable. But Brandon's reputation as a truly good man, coupled with Sophie's regard for Clarissa, conflict with their deepening desires. Meanwhile, Lady Clarissa's mother will stop at nothing to see the wedding through, despite her daughter's sudden attachment to the Prince of Bavaria (it's mutual). As the wedding day draws neigh, schemes are unleashed and bonds are broken. With wonderfully drawn characters, intrigue, and tantalizing passion, Rodale (The Rogue and the Rival) is certain to delight readers and keep them waiting, with baited breath, for more.
