Four young ladies enter London society with one common goal: they must use their feminine wit and wiles to find a husband.So a daring husband-hunting scheme is born.

Annabelle Peyton, determined to save her family from disaster, decides to use her beauty and wit to tempt a suitable nobleman into making an offer of marriage. But Annabelle's most intriguing—and persistent—admirer, wealthy, powerful Simon Hunt, has made it clear that while he will introduce her to irresistible pleasure he will not offer marriage. Annabelle is determined to resist his unthinkable proposition . . . but it is impossible in the face of such skillful seduction.

Her friends, looking to help, conspire to entice a more suitable gentleman to offer for Annabelle, for only then will she be safe from Simon—and her own longings. But on one summer night, Annabelle succumbs to Simon's passionate embrace and tempting kisses . . . and she discovers that love is the most dangerous game of all.

This is a great beginning to a new series. I really loved the concept and the execution of the girls coming together to help each other find someone to love. This story is also a great look into the changes that the industrial revolution wrought on the upper class in England. I quite enjoyed the characters both secondary and primary. There were a number of funny parts and a few hang onto the edge of your seat parts. Overall a pretty good books from a wonderful writer.read more

I found this book to be a little more interesting then other historical romance I've read because the leading lady, Annabelle (love that name by the way), was a little more strong willed then most. And our hero of the story, Simon, actually needed her as much as she needed him at times.. It was a rather nice change from the usual "Night in Shining Armor come to rescue his Damsel in Distress".So all in all I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Too slight. our heroine must catch a suitable husband before her families reduced circumstances can destroy her reputation. Alternatively she could become someones mistress. the plot comes to what feels like its natural conclusion about two thirds of the way through. some generally likabe or hissable character and a few good lines. my ebook version was full of typos

I like books that are unpretentious and do not try to be more that they are capable to be. Love story with fun and twist and turns. Interesting thing is that ending is not a wedding but we have a glimpse of how the couple is settled and tries to build a life together. Great book when you want to relax on the beach or on the quiet afternoon.
