The Union of the Rakes
Lady Grace Wyatt is content as a wallflower, focusing on scientific pursuits. But when a handsome, celebrated naturalist returns from abroad, Grace wishes, for once, to be noticed. Her solution: to "build" the perfect man, who will court her publicly and help her catch his eye. Grace's colleague, anthropologist Sebastian Holloway, is just the blank slate she requires. Sebastian agrees to let Grace transform him from a bespectacled, bookish academic into a dashing - albeit fake - rake. But Grace's feelings for Sebastian grow from friendship into undeniable, inconvenient, real attraction. If only she hadn't asked him to help her marry someone else.
