Synopsis:
The bride and groom cordially request the presence of. . . 
The bride's sister, Delilah, the very proper widowed Lady Hargate, and Samuel Russell, the groom's friend, a very eligible, slightly improper bachelor, at their upcoming wedding.

The lady plans to avoid love and its complications at all costs.The gentleman intends to change her mind.  
Guests are invited to enjoy the many diversions of Millworth Manor--delightful grounds, lavish drawing rooms, secluded corners--and the chance to discover that one night may have been only the beginning. . .
Oh, the lures of going to a wedding and seeing a dashing and very sly man with whom you would like to see again! Delilah and Samuel are smitten with each other right from the start!

Of course, Samuel has to overcome some obstacles as Delilah's first husband did not leave a good impression with her and she is wary of men and sex. But, he does manage to get her attention and then the fun begins!

Will it last or is it a fling? One thing is for sure, if you are a romance book junkie, this will be your weekly fix! Lots of romance and lots of should I or should I not? Which answer will Delilah end up giving Samuel?

About the Author: 
 
New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander was an award winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was much more fun than real life. She turned to writing full time and is still shocked it worked out.
 
Victoria is a former president of the Omaha Press Club and in 2009 was named an OPC Face on the Barroom Floor. A caricature portrait of her joined previous faces including presidents, sports figures and politicians in a tradition that began in 1971.

Victoria claims her love of romance and journalism is to due to the influence of her favorite comic book character: Lois Lane, a terrific reporter and a great heroine who pursued Superman with an unwavering determination. And why not? He was extremely well drawn.

Victoria grew up traveling the world as an Air Force brat. Today, she lives in Omaha, Nebraska with her husband and her dogs. Victoria had two bearded collies, Sam and Louie (named from characters in one of her books). Sam (on the left), the best dog in the world for 13 ½ years, passed away in September 2010. Louie took on the position of loyal companion and did a fine job even though he doesn't understand that kitchen counter surfing is not allowed! Now he's been joined by Reggie, king of the lilacs.

They all live happily ever after in a house under constant renovation and the accompanying parade of men in tool belts. And never ending chaos. Victoria laughs a great deal--she has to.
 
Since the publication of her first book in 1995, she has written thirty-one full length novels and six novellas.
 
I thought you guys might like this one, especially the romance junkies, so I decided to give this book to one winner. Open to the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!
