Lorraine Heath: An affair with a notorious heiress

Lorraine Heathin viihderomaanissa on skandaalinkäryä ja romantiikkaa yllin kyllin, ja juonessa on monenmoista koukkua kunnes rakastavaiset tajuavat että tässä se onnen paikka nyt on: An affair with a notorious heiress (Avon Books, 2017; ISBN 978-0-06-239110-0).

Melkoisen kulunutta reseptiä romaanissa viljellään, mutta teksti ei ole kovin kömpelöä, ja on hassummillakin yritelmillä kirjahyllyjä täytetty.

The son of a duke and an infamous mother, Alistair Mabry, Marquess of Rexton, fought his way to respectability. Now, the most eligible bachelor in London, marriage-shy Rexton will take only a wife with an impeccable reputation, good breeding, and a penchant for staying out of the gossip sheets. But when he strikes a deal to be seen courting a sweet young debutante whose notorious older sister has blemished her chances for marriage, Rexton is unexpectedly drawn to the highly inappropriate, calamitous Tillie, Lady Landsdowne herself.

After a scandalous incident that sent shockwaves throughout society and disgraced her, Tillie refuses to cower in the face of the ton. Instead, she will hold her head high as she serves as chaperone for her younger sister, but Tillie is convinced Rexton's courtship is shrouded with secrets - ones she vows to uncover. However, doing so requires getting dangerously close to the devilishly handsome and forbidden marquess.
