A Reckless Desire by Isabella Bradford
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Rivers accepts a bet from a friend challenging him to turn an unassuming tiring girl into a first class actress. Lucia jumps at the chance to leave her family, who believe that she is worthless, for a chance to be someone. Rivers quickly realizes that there is more to Lucia than meets the eye and us dazzled by her. Lucia learns that there is more to Rivers than a dukes son who always has his face in a book. Together they set out to conquer London, and love conquers them. But will the snobby duke allow is son to marry so far beneath him? A very romantic tale with very special characters.
