Eleanor is all set to capitulate to a ho hum union to the son of the Marquis of Wheatley, Bennett Raybourn, and in so doing clear the path for her sisters to marry well by restoring the family profile—when she is struck by the sight of her fiancé’s younger brother perusing the pages of a naughty book at the local book store, Eleanor cannot take her eyes off the rakish young man.
Too busy to court Eleanor himself, Bennett Raybourn enlists his dashing younger brother, the scandalous Alexander, to woo his betrothed on his behalf and discover all her likes and dislikes and preferences. But the more time Alexander spends with the secretly naughty Eleanor, and helps her tick off all the things on her good list for being bad, the more he knows what they both want, and need…
