Reader Review: Phoebe is the sweetest of all the heroines in this series. You feel her desperation of being alone even in a crowd. Although I found myself wanting her to take a stand for herself. Watching them fall in love was refreshing.
Lady Phoebe Fairchild is well aware that the ton would be appalled to learn of a young lady of quality involved in a trade. Therefore, she resorts to selling her beautiful handmade gowns under a fictitious name: Madame Dupree. So when circumstances force her to visit the estate of William Darby, the Viscount of Summerfield, to design ball gowns for his sisters, she assumes Madame's identity. Phoebe's discomfort in her new position as hired help is nothing compared to her visceral attraction to the viscount himself. Heathenishly handsome and shamelessly seductive, Will invites her to be his mistress -- and Phoebe is shockingly tempted to accept. But as their desire for each other grows and the risk of exposure becomes even greater, Phoebe is in dire danger of losing her reputation, her livelihood -- and her chance of becoming the bride of the man whose passion has claimed her forever.

The Dangers of Deceiving a Viscount
William Darby, Viscount Summerfield, Baron Ivers, rode the last mile to Wentworth Hall full bore. The letter from his father's secretary was in his breast pocket, stained red by the sands of the Egyptian desert, smelling of salt from the passage across the Mediterranean, and tattered at the folds from Will's frequent reading of it.
The earl has suffered a terrible fit of apoplexy that has left him paralyzed. You are needed at home, sir.
In the six years since Will had left Wentworth Hall to take his grand tour of Europe -- a tour his father had urged a restless young man of two and twenty to take before duty and responsibility claimed him -- he'd received many letters from his father. In the first letters, the earl had exulted in the sights Will had seen and the adventures he'd experienced, as related weekly in a letter home. The tour was supposed to have lasted two years, but Will had gone on to India instead of coming home as expected, and his father's letters had changed in tone. While the earl still enjoyed the tales of Will's travels, he often reminded his son of his responsibility to his family and as the future Earl of Bedford, and asked him to come home.
Will always wrote that he would, and truly, he always meant to come home. But invariably he'd meet a fellow traveler who would feed his wanderlust with a tale of the Himalayas or searching for treasure in the oases of Africa, and Will would be off again.
In the last two years, his father's letters had cajoled and pleaded with Will to come home and marry as he ought, to provide an heir before it was too late, before the earl was gone. His father professed a longing to hold his grandchi...

After reading the previous books in this series I had high hopes for this book. I was however slightly disapointed with it. the begining was wonderful but it seemed like the middle of the book all the way to the end seemed to drag. by the end I was skimming the pages to be done with it. don't get me wrong, I love the characters, I only wish there were a little more excitement towards the end. it was anticlimatic.

3rd book in the "Desperate Dubutante" series. Innocent sweet Phoebe is a lady fallen on hard times. With a gift for designing gowns, she secretly sells them through a shop to earn a living but the shopkeeper blackmailed her to go on an assignment to make gowns for a viscount's sisters. So she disguises as widow "Madame Dupree" and ends up falling in love with the Viscount. She gets jealous as he entertains other ladies while she is employed in his estate. And it climaxes when he finally discovers she'd been deceiving him and was in fact a high ranking lady! Exactly the type of story I love! The emotional tangle for both of them was intense - Him not able to break tradition to desire someone outside his ranks and She falling deeper and deeper in love with him while living a lie. Get ready for an emotional ride!

This was my favorite among the three stories. I could not stop reading because of the suspense of the story. The whole series was actually very empowering for women. Julia London did a great job. A must read!
