From ugly duckling to beautiful swan
Eliza Hammond has always been quiet and reserved-hardly the best qualities for finding the man of her dreams and living happily ever after. A new heiress, Eliza is financially secure, courtesy of her aunt's fortune, but even great wealth has its drawbacks since every greedy, fortune-hunting bachelor suddenly finds Eliza irresistible.
To help her best friend, Violet takes Eliza's romantic dilemma into her own hands, enlisting the social skills of her brother-in-law, Lord Christopher “Kit” Winter. Kit helps transform Eliza into a stunning belle, certain to attract a worthy beau. There's just one problem: Eliza has always been head over heels in love with Kit, the very man who is trying to find her a husband! But during Eliza's sometimes-comic extreme makeover, and with a few secret love lessons from Kit on the side, sparks-and passionate kisses-begin to fly. Kit soon finds himself completely overcome by an all-consuming desire for Eliza. But if he fails to realize his true love for her, he may lose this fair lady forever.
This final novel in the trilogy of historical romances that also includes THE HUSBAND TRAP and THE WIFE TRAP can also stand on its own as the story of Eliza Hammond, a naturally reserved woman who has come into a large inheritance--and whose list of potential, non-gold-digging husbands is quickly dwindling. Her best friend, Violet, and her rakishly handsome brother-in-law, Kit, decide to take matters into their own hands, transforming Eliza from a wallflower with few decent prospects into a femme fatale.
