Why is the notorious Duke of Blackstone ruining Mary's well-laid plans to marry his brother, the handsome Viscount Wetherly? Every time she turns a corner, he is there—tantalizing her, teasing her . . . and the more she tries to ignore him, the more insistent he becomes. Mary knows she must make an advantageous marriage, but surely Blackstone is the wrong man for her. Isn't he?
Blackstone is not about to let his brother become bewitched by some wily blueblood pretender . . . even one as deliciously tempting as Mary. But until she came along, no woman has ever resisted his smooth, well-practiced seductions. Could it be that he's actually fallen in love with this infuriating chit?

Kathryn Caskie has long been a devotee of history and things of old, so it came as no surprise to her family when she took a career detour off the online superhighway and began writing historical romances full time. With a background in marketing, advertising, and journalism, she has written professionally for television, radio, the internet, magazines, and newspapers in and around metropolitan Washington, DC. How to Engage an Earl is her sixth novel. Kathryn lives in a 200-year-old Quaker home nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains with her greatest sources of inspiration, her husband and two young daughters.From Booklist:
Unlike her sisters Elizabeth and Ann, who are convinced that they are secretly descended from royalty, practical Mary Royle refuses to waste her time with that particular Banbury tale. Instead, Mary is determined to find a way to capture the romantic affections of war-hero Quinn Wetherly. Convinced that Mary is nothing more than a scheming fortune hunter, Quinn's older brother Rogan Wetherly, the Duke of Blackstone, decides to get Quinn out of Mary's matrimonial-minded clutches by matching Quinn up with the lovely widow Portia Tidwell. Since Quinn seems to be too busy with Portia, Mary is at first pleasantly surprised when Rogan offers to escort her around, but once she discovers Rogan's real motive, Mary decides to turn the tables on the "Black Duke" and seduce him instead. This is the first in a deliciously fun historical Regency series featuring the Royle sisters and their search for their true heritage and another of Caskie's wickedly witty, superbly sexy, laughter-laced literary confections.
