A bold woman known as the "duchess of Magnus" was wagered --
and won -- in a card game. But the woman who arrived was
her shy, quiet cousin Eleanor.
Eleanor de Lacy must have been mad to agree to exchange
identities with her stronger-willed cousin. She would never
convince Remington Knight of the folly of this union --
especially since the man seemed so determined for it to
take place. Worse still, she finds Remington dazzlingly
attractive -- and she's charmed by his attempts to seduce
her, even though he believes she is already his. But if he
ever learns of Eleanor's deception, this daring rogue will
wreak havoc...upon her reputation and her heart.
Remington had expected a haughty, unbending aristocrat who
would ensure his entrance into good society. But
this "duchess" is a most pleasant surprise -- modest, warm-
hearted, endearingly awkward, and a delight to the eye. In
short, she is exactly the sort of bride Remington could
fall passionately, completely in love with...
...if he weren't so intent on his revenge.
