SHE HAS THE FIGURE OF A GODDESS...
How Miss Antonia Locke longs for an artistic soul mate, to share the passionate melodies she composes upon the church pianoforte! But such a union--or any other--seems unlikely. For her divine face and rhapsody of golden curls can never compensate for the daily struggle with her corset. A touch too buxom for the gentlemen's taste, she's certain she will be left on the shelf!
...AND HE MEAN TO MAKE HER HIS VENUS
So the generously proportioned Antonia is nonplussed by the brazen overtures of Patrick Fairchild, Duke of Exton. How can she know that in her, this handsome profligate sees the perfect model for the naked Botticelli Venus he longs to paint? If Antonia will not disrobe for the sake of art, he plans to trap her into a marriage of convenience. But one sweet tryst, and a crescendo of desire to match Antonia's sultry curves, could make the duke a prisoner of his own strategy.
