A Summer to RememberBook - 2010
"Matchless storyteller"(Romantic Times) Mary Balogh is at her spellbinding best in a new novel that features Lauren Edgeworth from One Night for Love as her heroine. The nationally bestselling author of More than a Mistress and No Man's Mistress weaves a tantalizing web of seduction, wit, and intrigue sure to delight her legions of devoted fans. Here she brings together an unlikely duo--a notorious rake and a very proper lady--who plot to scandalize society and win freedom from matrimony for them both. It was merely a partnership. Love had nothing to do with it. But then again, nothing is ever as it seems in the irresistible novels of Mary Balogh. He may be a lord, but he is no gentleman. Kit Butler, Viscount Ravensberg, is cool and dangerous--one of London's most infamous bachelors. Marriage is the last thing on his mind. But Kit's family has other plans. Desperate to thwart his father's matchmaking, Kit needs a bride...fast. Enter Miss Lauren Edgeworth. A year after being abandoned at the altar, Lauren has determined that marriage is not for her. When these two fiercely independent souls meet, sparks fly--and a deal is hatched. Lauren will masquerade as Kit's intended if he agrees to provide a passionate, adventurous, unforgettable summer. When summer ends, she will break off the engagement, rendering herself unmarriageable and leaving them both free. Everything is going perfectly--until Kit does the unthinkable: He begins to fall in love. A Summer to Remember is not enough for him. But how can he convince Lauren to be his...for better, for worse, for the rest of their lives? Not even the most devoted gambler would take odds on this match as Mary Balogh surprises and delights yet again in an unexpected love story that will hold you in thrall until the last glorious page is turned.
