The Raven Prince
There comes a time in a woman’s life when she must do the unthinkable--and find employment.
For the widowed Anna Wren, it is the bold step of taking employment as a female secretary for the Earl of Swartingham. Secretaries are always male--never female--and no one knows that better than Anna. But the real downfall of her career is the unfortunate realization that she is falling in love with Edward de Raaf--the earl. When she discovers that he is planning to visit a brothel in London to take care of his 'manly' desires, Anna sees red--and decides to take advantage of the opportunity to assuage her 'womanly' desires...with the earl as her unknowing lover.
I don't know about this one. I was excited about it, until I read that the heroine was going to "take care" of the hero's manly desires. Does this mean she's going to take him against a wall or something? Or is this going to be the typical HEROINE WEARS MASK THROUGHOUT SEX AND MORONIC AND BLIND HERO DOESN'T RECOGNIZE HER plot? Gosh, I hope not. I hope the heroine confronts the hero with her love and lust for him; would be a change. Anyone have any other scoop? Book is out November 2006.
