She thought she was the luckiest woman in London . . . Surviving on a seamstress' income and a steady stream of fantasies, Prudence Bosworth has always longed for love and romance. Then she inherits a fortune from the father she's never seen, with the stipulation that she wed in one year. Prudence is determined to marry for true love, and after seeing firsthand the splendid chivalry of a certain duke, only one man will do . . . Rhys de Winter, the Duke of St. Cyres, hides his cynicism behind a quick wit and an even quicker smile. He must marry an heiress, and as luck would have it, the pretty little seamstress-turned-heiress is exactly what he needs. But he never expected to fall for Prudence, and when his shocking deception is revealed, he will stop at nothing to win her back . . . even if it means renouncing every last one of his wicked ways.

Prudence Bosworth is a 28 year old bachelor girl who works as a seamstress. She works long, hard hours and gets regularly abused by the society women she works for. At one such ball, she meets and falls for the chivalrous Rhys de Winter, Duke of St Cyres. He is a shameless rogue who is absolutely broke. In the normal scheme of things, he would have remained a figment of her dreams. But circumstances makes Prudence an heiress of a huge fortune and she is thrown into society and meets the Duke of St Cyres again. He appears to be falling in love with her but how much is real feeling and how much is a desire for her fortune?

I am the greatest fan of Laura Lee Guhrke and most of her books are on my keeper shelf. But this book does not match her usual standard and I will be selling this book on. On the whole I didn't feel any suspense and the ending was too brief to make it feel satisfactory. Without wanting to give too much away, there just wasn't enough angsting, and Rhys just didn't have to do enough to redeem himself. Please don't let my review put you off reading work by Guhrke - she is usually brilliant!
