Summary
"The definitive guide to seduction...The Rake's Handbook was written on a dare, and soon took the ton by storm. Now its author, Ross Thornbury, is publicly reviled by the ladies--who are, of course, forbidden to read the handbook--but privately revered by the gentlemen. Unfortunately, Ross's notoriety is working against him, and he flees London painfully aware of the shortcomings of his own jaded heart. Spirited young widow Elinor Colton lives next to Ross's country estate. She's appalled not only by his rakish reputation, but also by his progressive industral plans. Elinor is sure her heart is immune to Ross's seductive ways. But he keeps coming around...impressing her with his vision for England's future and stunning her with his smiles. How does one resist the man who wrote the manual on love?"--Page [4] of cover
