Lady Deceived (Book 2)
Sarah Milton’s spinsterhood is not because she hasn’t
received proposals of marriage. Her beauty and dowry
have attracted many. It’s just that the men who have
proposed don’t appeal to her. One man who does, the
sport-mad Alfred Wickham, doesn’t know she exists.
Therefore, when his mother invites her family to spend
Yuletide with her extended family at the home of the
Duke and Duchess of Radcliff, Lady Sarah jumps at the

fancies an alliance between him and some well-bred young
miss he’s to meet at the Radcliffs’. The last thing
Alfred wants is to tie himself down in matrimony--and,

Alfred’s wicked ways: his gaming, his recklessness, and
his (feigned) understanding with an actress. Once Potts
has succeeded in poisoning Lady Sarah against his
friend, Alfred realizes he’s made a most dreadful
mistake . . .
