Confessions from an Arranged Marriage by Miranda NevilleThey couldnt be more different—but theres one thing they agree on...
In London after a two-year exile, Lord Blakeney plans to cut a swathe through the bedchambers of the demimonde. Marriage is not on his agenda, especially to an annoying chit like Minerva Montrose, with her superior attitude and a tendency to get into trouble. And certainly the last man Minerva wants is Blake, a careless wastrel without a thought in his handsome head.
The heat and noise of her debutante ball give Minerva a migraine. Surely a moments rest could do no harm . . . until Blake mistakes her for another lady, leaving Minervas guests to catch them in a very compromising position.

Minervas never been a woman to take things lying down, and shell let nothing stop her from winning his trust . . . and his heart.
