Somebody is reviving The Love List--that wickedly witty annual register of London's light skirts--and they've added Miss Brynne Wilmott's name to the list! She's had a difficult enough time escaping her monster of a fiancé, facing the wrath of her father--she doesn't need to be labeled a prostitute on top of it all. She'll do anything to prevent the publication of the List.
The Request a certain Duke has no wish to hear . . .
The Duke of Aldmere doesn't believe in meddling. Fate has proved that interfering in personal matters only leads to bigger trouble. He has no wish to involve himself in Brynne Wilmott's affairs, despite her spirited beauty and damned tempting mouth. But she's discovered that his brother is mixed up in this List business as well. Reluctantly, they agree to work together to prevent the disastrous publication.
Their quest leads them through some of London's most dangerous haunts and it quickly becomes clear that Brynne's former betrothed is behind the plot--and that his plans are more twisted and treasonous than anyone has suspected. Yet the danger and intrique are as nothing compared to the effect than Nathan and Brynne have on each other . . .
