Featherton Sisters Series, Book 2

Good heavens-I've gotten myself into a scrape! Mere weeks ago, I was simply Jenny Penny, a lady's maid, a lord's illegitimate daughter, and a lover of fine frocks. But my credit at the shops of Bath has been cut off, and I am forced to sell my homemade facial cream at night, without my employers' knowledge. Who knew it would become the sensation of the ton? That society ladies would apply it to a most intimate part of their body? Or that rumor would spread that "tingle cream" was created by a highborn woman named Lady Eros?

If that were not enough, my mistresses-the matchmaking Featherton sisters-have made me their new project. By passing me off as Lady Genevieve, they mean to see me wed to Callum Campbell, Lord Argyll. I cannot fault their taste. His sable-dark eyes and his devastatingly wicked smile thrill me.

Now I am Lady Genevieve by day and Lady Eros by night. And I blush to think of what will happen when Callum and society discover that, in truth, I am neither.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    November 29, 2004
    In Caskie's far-fetched second Regency romance (after Rules of Engagement
    ), Jenny Penny, illegitimate daughter of an unnamed baronet, and lady's maid to the two fluttering Featherton sisters, strives for a life above her station. While wintering in Bath with her employers, she spends her slim earnings on "earbobs" and muffs in the town's most exclusive shops. But she also reveals great skill as an amateur chemist, mixing up gallipots of peppermint face cream for her employers. The ton's most exclusive ladies soon discover that this "tingle cream" can be used elsewhere, and thanks to an underground servants' network, Jenny finds her discretionary revenue increasing along with her mysterious reputation as Lady Eros. Then Lord Argyll, a lusty Scottish baron, discovers Jenny one day as she's modeling a dress for the Feathertons. The two ladies immediately seize upon a plan to match Jenny to the Scottish baron, to whom she's introduced as Lady Genevieve. Days ironing, evenings at balls and nights filling gallipots soon bring Jenny to the end of her rope. How will Lady Eros, Lady Genevieve and plain old Jenny Penny finally reunite for one happy ending? Those willing to completely disregard rigid English rules about social class will delight in the fairy tale answer to this question. Agent, Jenny Bent at Trident Media.

    Lady's maid Jenny Penny dreamed of one day being a lady. Now it seems her dream is coming true. When Jenny is caught trying out a lovely coach by its owner, Callum Campbell, Viscount Argyll, Jenny pretends to be "Lady Genevieve" in order to escape. Much to her surprise, when Jenny encounters Callum again, her employers, Viola and Letitia Featherton, encourage her to continue her masquerade. Although the idea of dressing up and playing lady with a wickedly gorgeous Scotsman is very tempting, Jenny really doesn't have time to spare because her homemade peppermint facial cream has suddenly become quite popular (for use in an unintended manner) with Bath's finest. As Jenny struggles to meet the ever-increasing demands for Lady Eros' "cream d'amour" without her employers finding out, she still tries to keep Callum from discovering that his new lady love is but a maid. A delightfully original heroine with a penchant for shopping beyond her means matches wits with a sinfully sexy hero in Caskie's latest sweet, frothy, and laughter-laced historical Regency.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2004, American Library Association.)
