THE UNSUITABLE SUITOR a clean, sweet Regency romance by best-selling author Marilyn Clay. The story is set in London where remarkably handsome, devastatingly charming, Viscount Peterbloom was rumored to have kept as many as eight mistresses! But five years ago, the gentleman became weary of his dissolute ways and has led an exemplary life ever since. His one regret is that despite his winning way with the ladies, he never once fell in love, never once suffered the agony, or ecstasy, of a broken heart. Now, after meeting the lively Miss Miranda Frasier, Peterbloom wonders how to convince her that he is a new man?
Miranda and her sisters go to London to save their family home, only to learn the estate is now owned by the rakehell who stole a kiss from an innocent Miranda five years ago! Though she was outraged then, and still is, the memory of Lord Peterbloom's lips on hers can still make her blush. The reprobate claims to have mended his wicked ways. Miranda fervently hopes so since the handsome scoundrel holds not only the deed to her house, but the key to her heart.
