Miss Grace Fairchild is under no illusions about her charms. Painfully plain, she is a soldier's daughter who has spent her life being useful, not learning the treacherous ways of theton. She may have been caught in a scandal with society's favorite rogue, but how can she marry him when it means losing herself?


Diccan Hilliard doesn't know which of his enemies drugged him and dumped him in Grace's bed, but he does know the outcome. He and Grace must marry. To his surprise, a wild, heady passion flares between them. Yet Diccan is trapped in a deadly game of intrigue Grace knows nothing about. Will his lies destroy Grace just as he realizes how desperately he needs her? And how can he hope for a future with her, when an old enemy has set his murderous sights on them both?"

Review: I found this to be a slightly frustrating read. I find the heroine to be a complete pushover, and what made it worse is that she is the daughter of a soldier, who has been to several countries,faced dangerous situations, taken care of soldiers in the battlefield but yet she lets everyone walk all over her and take complete advantage. We are also constantly reminded about how plain and un-pretty she is.

Then there is "The Scene". Diccan, Grace's husband is cheating on her with his mistress and Grace watches the whole thing through a peephole. If that's not bad enough her reaction was beyond shocking, to sum it up she asked him to do all the things she saw him do to his mistress to her!  At that point I was ready to close the book up for good. And if it wasn't for the fact  that Eileen Dreyer has such an excellent way with her words I would have. The plot did redeem itself a little in the second half of the book.
