Library Journal Review

Determined to stave off poverty for her family, Marian Langley enters an agreement with the disreputable Duke of Warrington. Nathaniel will teach her the art of seduction, secretly and with virtue intact, so she can become a renowned courtesan. When an angry former suitor blackmails Marian into an engagement, the lessons with Nate turn into a very real elopement, as the two leave for Gretna Green in Scotland. But a loveless marriage is precisely what Marian wanted nothing to do with. VERDICT Readers may question why a seasoned former courtesan sends Marian to a duke for "training" without asking for payment but may find this otherwise rollicking and sensual Regency romp strong enough in drama and action yet light in emotional development to satisfy. While fourth in the "Rogue Files" series, this title does stand alone. Fans of Lorraine Heath and Karen Hawkins will find much to enjoy.--Elizabeth Gabriel, Milwaukee P.L.
