A Date With Dishonour by Mary Brendan
When a mysterious lady advertises her charms in the newspaper there's no way Viscount Blackthorne will allow his rash friend to attend the twilight rendezvous. Taking his place, Blackthorne is surprised by the reluctant beauty that appears – she's far from the scheming courtesan he was expecting.
Elise Dewey must protect her foolish sister by posing as 'Lady Lonesome' in her stead. She's shockingly stirred by the imposing stranger who waits for her in Vauxhall Gardens – but their liaison has been observed...and unless Elise accepts the Viscount's bold proposal of marriage they will all be plunged into scandal!
