As the spirited daughter of a famed archeologist, Rose Grace has led a life of grand adventure. But in an instant, everything changes. Now it’s Rose who must take charge of her unruly younger sisters, and it’s Rose who must save her family from financial ruin by snagging a wealthy husband. Yet even as the quick-witted beauty sets her sights on a rich lord, another man waits in the wings ...a gallant playboy with designs on her heart...
St. John Fotheringay-Phipps, known to all as Fungy, has spent the past fifteen years thinking little more than of his own pleasure. Then he meets the darling Miss Grace, and finds himself yearning to turn over a new leaf. Suddenly the elegant, dapper, deliciously amusing Fungy is well on his way to becoming a reformed rake. But to win the lady of his dreams, he must do two things: thwart the blackguard who would lead her astray...and wait for the moment when she discovers what true love really means.From Booklist:
Dame Fortune wraps up Bond's quartet. St. John Fotheringay-Phipps, a fashionable fribble, meets Miss Rose Grace, the eldest--and extremely gauche--daughter of a noted archaeologist recently returned to England, at her first London party, and he is charmed by her bluestocking tendencies, which he secretly shares. Bond delights in pitting forthright young women heedless of conventions against established men of society who are alternately shocked and amused at their antics, but who unerringly fall under their spell.
