They are sworn enemies…

Theodore Prescott the Third, one of Manhattan’s Rogues of Millionaire Row, has really done it this time. The only way to survive his most recent, unspeakably outrageous scandal is marry someone respectable. Someone sensible. Someone like Daisy Swann. Of all the girls in Gilded Age Manhattan, it had to be her.

Pretending to be lovers…

Daisy Swann has plans and they do not involve a loveless marriage with anyone. But when a devastating family secret threatens to destroy her standing in society, suddenly a fake engagement with Theo is just the thing to make all her dreams come true.

And now it’s time to kiss and make up…

Daisy Swann aspires to sell cosmetics that she has created, but this brainy scientist needs a smooth talking charmer’s flair for words and eye for beauty to make it a success. Before long, Daisy and Theo are trading kisses. And secrets. And discovering that despite appearances, they might be the perfect couple after all.

Okay so I am just going to put it out there for the world to know….. THIS SERIES IS IN MY TOP 5 FAVORITE BOOK SERIES EVER.  Mind you that there are only two books in this series at this time but they are both AMAZING!!!!   I love all things historical fashion and when combined with a quick witted, determined heroine you get books that I just can’t say enough about!  Maya Rodale made me fall in love with these characters and this story from the prologue.

Daisy Swan has her own goals and dreams of creating face creams for the ladies and was looking forward to her long anticipated spinsterhood to make that dream come true.  Too bad her mother and the father of her arch nemesis have other plans for her.  Will their attempts to marry her off succeed or will her dreams of personal success become a reality?

Theodore “Theo” Prescott the third is the wealthy son of “one of Manhattan’s most celebrated millionaire tycoons” and Daisy Swan’s worst enemy.   In the wake of a serious scandal the last thing Theo expected his father to demand of him was marriage, especially marriage to Daisy Swan.  But being forced together with the one woman who sees through his charms may just be what this “Rogue of Millionaire Row” needs to find his place in the world.

I adore this book and LOVE LOVELOVE this series!
