Rodz (USA: OH) (2011/08/17):
SHE WAS THE PRIZE ...
When Vicar Goodbody goes to his eternal reward, his pious daughter Virtue is left destitute ... unless she can find the mother who abandoned her, in infancy, for a courtesan's life in London. But when she does, she becomes a pawn in her mother's plan to marry her off to Roman Knightley, nephew to the Earl of Larchmont. Virtue, whose name and prim exterior belie her secret desires of marrying a handsome prince, is deemed the perfect bride to reform the notorious London rake. Yet can she mold a dissolute bridegroom into the nonpareil of her dreams?
... IN A DARING GAME OF LOVE
Born into the Larchmont family on the wrong side of the blanket, Roman's chiseled English countenance and dark Gypsy eyes could capture the heart of any lady in the ton. Now, at the price of the earldom, his fusty uncle is shackling him to a priggish bride! He would just have to keep it a marriage in name only. But when Virtue, with a little help from a friend, transforms herself into a stunning beauty, Roman must set out to win the prize --- and love --- of his life ...
