Lady Francesca Haughston had given up on romance for herself, finding passion instead in making desirable matches for others. So it seemed only fair, when she learned she had been deceived into breaking her own long-ago engagement to Sinclair, Duke of Rochford, that she now help him find the perfect wife.Of course, Francesca was certain any spark of passion between them had long since died--her own treatment of him had seen to that.

This is the novel where the matchmaker of the previous three gets her match and some of the adventure and peril is very much patched on for drama and additional venues for hot sexin'. It's a good thing it was slim be...
