Haunted by her sister's memory...

A vision brought traveling preacher's daughter Mary Sheppard to the wicked city of London-she saw the image of her runaway identical twin Josephine, bloodstained and begging for help. But Josephine has vanished and is wanted for the murder of her nobleman lover. And his brother Adam, the haughtily elegant Duke of St. Chaldon, has sworn to see her hang.

Conspiring with her sister's enemy...

The only way to clear Josephine's name is to find the real culprit, so shy Mary devises a scandalous ruse. Dressed as a courtesan, wearing gems as heavy as sin, and tutored in the arts of a temptress by the duke, she will enter the gilded salons of Regency society.

Trapped by passion and endangered by love...

But soon Mary's passion and spirit arouse in Adam the dark heat of desire. And as he coaxes her to delicious abandon in a decadent game of deception, Mary finds herself living the life and the lie of a privileged lady-the lady she knows she can never be...

Review: Never A Lady

User Review  - Diana Dupre - Goodreads

Back in medieval England, a guilty pleasure of mine. A different twist to the cliche' of a nobleman falling for a commoner and throwing away convention. The kidnapping twist was fun but I had the bad guy picked out right away, it was still a fun read though. =) Read full review

About the author (1996)

Barbara Dawson Smith: Call me a chronic dreamer, but I love a good book. Like everyone else, I get caught up in carpooling for my two daughters, taking out the garbage, and paying the bills. Reading is my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the reward for a long day's work. Even after writing sixteen romance novels of my own, I still love to escape into the magical world of another writer's imagination.
