Description

New York Times bestselling author Betina Krahn's warmhearted and witty new romance is filled with sparkling surprises . . . When Frances Bumgarten encounters a handsome stranger in her kitchen in the middle of the night, her first impulse is to wallop the scoundrel on the head with a bread paddle. And when Frankie discovers he is "The Fox," a disarmingly arrogant purveyor of gossip among England's aristocracy, she's tempted to take a second swing . . . Never mind that Reynard Boulton, nephew of the Viscount Tannehill, is returning her inebriated uncle safely home. This chiseled intruder has sparked an infuriating physical sensation unlike anything the feisty Nevada silver heiress has experienced. In fact, the noblemen of London are so dull, Frankie's sworn off marriage entirely. She will, however, help her younger sister win her own love match--even if it means secretly enlisting Reynard's enquiring mind . . . But secrets, as Reynard knows too well, can be costly. For Frankie is yet unaware that a villainous duke is scheming to claim her--and ruin him. Soon they're racing to uncover the truth--and fueling a passion that won't stay hidden . . . Praise for A Good Day to Marry a Duke

Review quote

Praise for The Girl with the Sweetest Secret: "VERDICT A fearless, irrepressible heroine and a hero who matches her every move meet in a complex, richly plotted story, adding another sparkler to Krahn's engaging series." --Library Journal "In her latest historical tale, Krahn once again strikes the perfect balance between sharp wit and sexy romance." - Booklist

"The words you could use to describe Krahn's books are the same words you would use to talk about a sunbeam. Her stories glow with charm, sweetness and warmth. It should also be noted that the bright quality of her stories never comes at the expense of their excitement, suspense and rich characters....There's nothing I love better than a fabulous romance that has more on its mind than just the central relationship....And oh boy, does this one deliver. Sweetest Secret gives readers true villains, complex issues to solve and two lead characters who really do keep you wondering if they will ever manage to end up together. It's a richly dimensional story that will, I'm sure, stand the test of time. As Christmas approaches, it's good to take a break from the hustle and the grey skies that surround our favorite holiday. You'll find no better shelter than the pages of The Girl with the Sweetest Secret." --Bookpage "Reynard and Frankie are a perfect match in wit and strength....Readers will enjoy watching all three of the book's couple's race to the finish line." --Publishers Weekly Praise for Betina Krahn's previous romance, A Good Day to Marry a Duke: "The very essence of romance . . . endlessly entertaining." --Booklist (Starred Review) "Readers will gallop through the lighthearted love story." --Kirkus Reviews "Full of wit, deceit, manipulation, and a thoroughly entertaining mix of American and English cultural references, this amusing romance has set the bar high for the sequels." --Publishers Weekly Praise for the previous works of Betina Krahn:

"A delectable romance most readers will find impossible to resist." --Booklist (starred review)

"An utterly charming treat . . . a heroine to admire and love and a meltingly desirable hero. . . . Nothing could be better about this book." --RT Book Reviews Top Pick "The contemporary sexual feel of the writing . . . worked seamlessly into the historical setting." --Smart Bitches, Trashy Books "Rip roaring romantic escapade is a breath of fresh air in historical reading." --Fresh Fiction "Witty, rollicking romance. . . a bright, exciting adventure." --Publisher's Weekly "Krahn has outdone herself in this funny, sexy medieval romance . . . will keep readers smiling--and hungry--until the end." --Library Journal "A captivating tale of action, adventure and passion that is wickedly fun." --Chicago Tribune
