The League of Second SonsA secret society of younger sons, sworn to aid and abet each other, no matter the scandal or cost.... Their fathers and brothers may rule the world, but they run it . . . and when it comes to passion, they refuse to accept second best.Roland Devere, younger son of an earl, has never seen a bet he wouldn't take or a risk that wasn't worth the thrill. But a life of careless hedonism is about to catch up with him . . . hard and fast, and all over one tiny bet concerning who can bed the current scandal of the year. Lady Olivia Carlow made a grand alliance according to her father's wishes but her husband turned out to already have a wife in Scotland. And now society, at the least the male half, has declared it open season on fallen, not-quite widows. When Livy receives a letter propositioning her in no uncertain terms, she decides to turn the offer to good use. She's going to make Roland suffer. She's going to use their "engagement" to keep the rest of London's rakes at bay. And she's going to enjoy every minute of it!
ISOBEL CARR is single, child-free and a committed "dog person" (the bigger the dog the better). She has taught creative writing, horseback riding and seminars on historical costuming. She can drive stick and start a fire without matches. And she can make a souffle, and hitch a team of horses to a wagon. She can also spend nine hours in a Victorian corset without a problem but can't wear heels for more than four hours. She laughed all the way through every episode of Colonial House and if she could only watch one movie for the rest of her life, it would be Impromptu.
