1816, England. Brandon St. Clair, the Earl of Vale, has never been one to follow the rules. Even though he must marry a wealthy heiress so that he can be rid of the pile of debt he inherited with his title, he can’t stop thinking of another. Amelia Somerton is the daughter of a forger and is not a suitable wife. But that doesn’t stop Brandon from making Amelia a different offer, the kind that breaks every rule of etiquette…
Sin runs in Amelia’s family. And even though she now rubs elbows with the aristocracy, she knows the truth—she has the ability to forge priceless works of art. She’ll never be seen as an acceptable wife, not that she wants to marry, anyway. So when the earl scandalously offers her the one thing she’s always dreamed of, she can’t help but take it. But what begins as a simple arrangement, soon escalates into much more, and as the heat between them sizzles, each encounter becomes a lesson in seduction…


Amelia Somerton is an artist and daughter of a forger.  Luckily since her sister married  Lord Huntington they no longer have to worry about money or staying out of trouble.  The one thing Amelia would love is to be able to sign her real name to her paintings,  but the subject matter of her work might upset the "ton" and that could bring censure on her sisters.  She is a very strong minded and independent woman. 
Brandon St. Clair,  the Earl of Vale is still trying to sort out the financial mess his father left behind when he died.  His grandmother only knows about part of the debts, but is forcefully encouraging him to marry the heiress she has picked out for him. 
The problems our hero has to deal with keep getting worse while he is keeping up appearances. 
This is part of a series but easily read as a stand alone.  There is mischief and intrigue and spicy love scenes.  A lighthearted and thoroughly enjoyable book.  I loved it.
