When she spots a certain engagement announcement in The Times, she decides to take action. She will not allow another hapless girl to fall prey to a man -- particularly the scoundrel who broke her heart five years ago. Anonymously she writes and distributes a pamphlet entitled "Secrets of a Wedding Night," knowing it will find its way into his intended's innocent hand. Devon Morgan, the Marquis of Colton, desires a good wife and mother to his son -- someone completely unlike Lily Andrews, the heartless beauty who led him on a merry chase five years ago only to reject him. When Devon's new fiancée cries off after reading a certain scandalous pamphlet, he vows to track down the author and make her pay. But when he learns it's his former fiancée Lily, he issues a challenge: write a retraction -- or prepare to be seduced -- to find out how wonderful a wedding night can be"--Back cover."@en ;
