1803. The arrogant Duke of Trent intends to marry a well-bred Englishwoman. The last woman he would ever consider marrying is the adventuresome Merry Pelford-- an American heiress who has infamously jilted two fiances. But after one provocative encounter with the captivating Merry, Trent desires her more than any woman he has ever met. He is determined to have her as his wife, no matter what it takes. And Trent is a man who always gets what he wants. The problem is, Merry is already betrothed, and the former runaway bride has vowed to make it all the way to the altar. As honor clashes with irresistible passion, Trent realizes the stakes are higher than anyone could have imagined. In his battle to save Merry and win her heart, one thing becomes clear: All is fair in love and war.

Few things make me as happy as a new Eloisa James book! This is a rare standalone from her (though I for one have hopes she'll eventually write a book for the hero's twin brother), and I think it's overall quite successful. (Though I will note that apparently this started out as a novella before she decided she had too much to say and fleshed it out to a full novel, and you can kiiiiiinda tell -- there's enough here to keep you entertained, but it's not quite as creative a premise as her novels usually are.) The heroine is likable and endearing and watching her and the hero fall in love (fighting it every step of the way, naturally) is very fun. A fun read for Regency romance fans, or for anyone looking for a light, enjoyable love story for February.
