Library Journal Review

Spurred into action by her father's command to mend her irresponsible ways and make a respectable match within a month, Lady Ivy Sinclair has little choice but to try to make her current flirt, the rather dull Lord Tinsdale, propose. But a new charmer has attracted Tinsdale's attention, and a suddenly desperate Ivy does the only thing she can-she buys some competition. Unbeknownst to her, the "actor" she has hired to portray the relatively unknown Marquess of Counterton is actually the marquess himself, who, fascinated by the boldly unconventional Ivy, plays along. VERDICT This funny, spicy, satisfying tale is another winner for Caskie (To Sin with a Stranger) and is the second title in her "Seven Deadly Sins" series, which stars the wild Sinclair siblings. Note: Envy is the featured sin, and well-chosen quotes (e.g., "Of the seven deadly sins, only envy is no fun at all."-Joseph Epstein) add to the fun. (c) Copyright 2010.
