Counterfeit betrothal. Lady Sophia Bryant has no intention of marrying anytime soon. Her one desire is to reunite her parents, who have been estranged for fourteen years. Surely, if she happens to announce her betrothal--even a false one--they will be forced to see each other. Devilishly handsome Lord Francis Sutton seems perfect for such deceit, always agreeable to games of passion in which he has nothing to lose. The trap is set--if only Lady Sophia can keep her foolish heart from falling prey to her brilliant snares.
Notorious rake. Lord Edmund Waite is everything that Lady Mary Gregg despises: lewd, lascivious, mocking--the most incorrigible and successful rogue around. A bluestocking like her would never tempt a man whose taste runs to pretty playthings--so Mary is startled to find herself the object of Lord Edmund's desires. Even more surprising is her reaction to his shocking advances. She may be a lady, but this man knows so well how to make her feel like a woman.

Two stories in one volume, but the quality is uneven. The Notorious Rake is a decent effort for Mary Balogh. The characters can get a bit tiresome with their back & forth but it's a nice story if not exactly remarkable. On the other hand, A Counterfeit Bethrothal is an absolute delight from start to finish. A romance within a romance - one youthful and light-hearted and the other a very well wrought, mature, thoughtful, and tender romance. And nicely sensual too. Mary Balogh at her best! This one stays with you...Wonderful.
