England – 1817

The Earl of Stratford, Geoffrey Wentworth, rushed home after an emergency message from his mother. Thinking something horrible had happened, Geoffrey had his worst fears confirmed when his mother admitted to inviting a large number of eligible females for a two week stay, in hopes of matching her son with a suitable woman. But Geoffrey, passionate about his political efforts to help war veterans, insists he can't be bothered with such a farce… At least until he sets eyes on the beautiful Miss Claremont.

Liliana Claremont doesn't want a husband, but she does want to know what Geoffrey's father had to do with her own father's death. Certain a clue to their connection has to be in Geoffrey's house somewhere, Liliana does her best to seem uninteresting so the Earl will leave her alone and give her more time to snoop through the house. But Liliana's charm works against her, and in no time Geoffrey finds himself unable to get her off his mind. But to someone who holds trust and honesty in such high regard, if Liliana's intentions come to light, would he be able to forgive her for her deception?

SWEET ENEMY combines romance, history, and intrigue into one excellent read. Liliana is a smart and driven woman. She knows what she wants, and she's not only willing to work hard to achieve it, but she's brilliant enough to figure out the best way to get things done. Her chemistry with Geoffrey is something special, and their early banter and misunderstandings lead to some very amusing scenes.

Readers won't be able to put SWEET ENEMY down. A fast paced plot and captivating characters make SWEET ENEMY a must read for all historical romance fans. Well deserving of the Perfect 10 rating, readers, myself included, will be eagerly anticipating another novel by this delightful author.

SWEET ENEMY is the first in a soon to be well-loved series. Historical Romance fans should be on the lookout for this book, as well as its upcoming sequel, SWEET DECEPTION, in August 2012.
