Stepsiblings in search of the truth about their mother’s succession of beloved husbands—and their own surprising identities as eligible young nobles—are the endearing stars of this dazzling series from New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries . . . A past kiss with adorably bookish Miss Olivia Norley should be barely a memory for Marlowe Drake, the Duke of Thornstock. After all, there are countless debutantes for a handsome rakehell to charm beyond a young lady whose singular passion is chemistry—of the laboratory type. But Thorn has not forgotten—or forgiven—the shocking blackmail scheme sparked by that single kiss, or the damage caused to both their names. Now Thorn’s half-brother, Grey, has hired the brilliant Miss Norley for her scientific expertise in solving a troubling family mystery. And the once-burned Thorn, suspicious of her true motives, vows to follow her every move . . . For Olivia, determining whether arsenic poisoning killed Grey’s father is the pioneering experiment that could make her career—and Thorn’s constant presence is merely a distraction. But someone has explosive plans to derail her search. Soon the most unexpected discovery is the caring nature of the reputed scoundrel beside her—and the electricity it ignites between them . . . “Anyone who loves romance must read Sabrina Jeffries!” —Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author

She doesn't want to get married, so when the duke sends her a letter requesting her presence for the nuptials, she responds with a letter of her own informing him that the wedding is off. Harold doesn't really want to marry her either, but is compelled by his grandmother to do so. It is an ultimatum--either he marries Rebecca, or upon his grandmother's death Rebecca will inherit everything and he will be penniless. So he and his bachelor friend from college sail across the ocean to "simply take her" home to England.They discover that it's not so easy when she proves to be a very headstrong, independent woman. However, her three "brothers" (lifelong close male friends) believe she can be happy with Harold and hatch a plan to help Harold "kidnap" her and take her aboard his ship to England. The "brothers" go, of course, as bodyguards to their dear friend. Once aboard the ship, the would-be lovers have problems. Rebecca wants to get to know Harold better and learn the details of what's expected of her as Harold's wife: in particular, the making of babies. Harold would be happy to show her, but every time they get together, Rebecca's "brothers" step in and prevent it. Plus, Harold doesn't want to ruin his grandmother's plans for an elaborate church wedding by compromising her. That is, until one night when Harold gets drunk and finds Rebecca playing cards with her male friends. He gets angry, steals a gun and threatens the "brothers" and his friend, taking Rebecca into his cabin. But instead of compromising her as he intended, he vomits and passes out.After many misunderstandings, mishaps and misadventures, the two finally realize they love each other and are ready for a happily ever after.
