For Olivia Lytton, betrothal to the Duke of Canterwick-- hardly a Prince Charming-- feels more like a curse than a happily-ever-after. At least his noble status will help her sister, Georgiana, secure an engagement with the brooding, handsome Tarquin, Duke of Sconce, a perfect match for her in every way-- every way but one. Tarquin has fallen in love with Olivia. Quin never puts passion before reason. And reason says that Georgiana is his ideal bride. But the sensual, fiery, strong-willed Olivia ignites an unknown longing in him-- a desire they are both powerless to resist. When a scandalous affair begins, they risk losing everything-- Olivia's engagement, her sister's friendship, and their own fragile love. Only one thing can save them-- and it awaits in the bedroom, where a magnificent mattress holds life-changing answers to the greatest romantic riddle of all.--P. [4] of cover

Miss Kate Daltry doesn't believe in fairy tales . . . or happily ever after. Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince and decides he's anything but charming.

For Gabriel is promised to another woman--a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions. Gabriel likes his fiancée, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn't love her. Obviously, he should be wooing his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him. Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after --unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble --unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune --unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything
