Praised by Publishers Weekly for writing Regency romance at its finest and funniest,” RITA Award-winning author Barbara Metzger presents an engaging novel of love, marriage, and seduction
It was a match made not in heaven, but in pound notes an arranged engagement between a girl of thirteen and a lord’s prodigal son. Since then, thirteen years have passed, and as her betrothed has been sowing his wild oats, Penny has grown up, grown impatient, and grown resentful. In fact, she’s vowed never to marry the man who blighted her life and destroyed her dreams.
Viscount Westfield is prepared happily to return the money that Penny’s father paid to secure the betrothal. It would appear that everyone is in agreement. But one look at Penny and Westfield knows he can never, ever let her go

Barbara Metzger is the author of more than three dozen historical romances, including The Wicked Ways of a True Hero. She lives on the Long Island shore.From Publishers Weekly :
This well-constructed Regency features smoldering love scenes and chapter headers from an imaginary account of arranged marriages that add a touch of charm to the entertainment. Viscount Kendall West Westmoreland and Persephone Penny Goldthwaite finally and reluctantly wed after a 13-year engagement engineered by Penny's family. When West is delayed while traveling, Penny must take up all the duties of a newly minted viscountess; protect West's careless wastrel brother from her own swindling stepbrother; fend off West's jealous and wealthy former lover and plan a grand ball even as she wonders whether her husband will return home in time to attend. Metzger (The Wicked Ways of a True Hero) takes some interesting chances with her story, populating it with well-drawn and often idiosyncratic characters and keeping it sweet without being sappy.
