"Of all the accusations Gregory, Duke of Halstead, has ever had leveled at him, this is perhaps the most offensive and the least accurate. But as he has just woken naked in bed with no memory of the night before, next to a beautiful stranger, perhaps it's time to reevaluate! Innocent Prudence is just as shocked when she awakens! But as these strangers begin to unravel the plot behind the scandalous circumstances, she discovers the delicious consequences of finding herself in bed with...a duke!"-- Page [4] of cover.

Ms. Burrows writes her romances with tongue in cheek and a definite sense of humor. This novel starts where most romances end—with the leading lord and lady in bed together. So how did that happen?

Therein lies a tale and quite a saucy and funny tale it is too. Having both been drugged for unknown and nefarious reasons, Prudence and Gregory embark on a road trip that involves a foul-tempered nag, a conniving aunt, a greedy uncle, suspicious tavern keepers, lecherous fops, an angry, gun-toting, bickering farmer and his wife, theft, secret identities and so much more. If it sounds improbable, the two are well aware of it. But that makes it such a great story.

Another aspect of Ms. Burrows’s novels are the inherent misunderstandings that arise from mistaken impressions, silences and misinterpretation of other people’s moods. Just because you’ve got the hots for someone doesn’t mean you know what’s going on in your significant other’s mind and Ms. Burrows is well aware of this. Because Prudence gets unnerved by the revelation of Gregory's real social status, marriage gets proposed, withdrawn, awkwardly handled and refused in such dizzying succession, you wonder if these two will actually make it to the altar.

The novel manages to amuse and titillate in equal measure as the unlikely bedfellows argue and battle their way to understanding and into marriage. It’s good stuff and shows that there’s more to romance than automatic sexual heat.
