McMillan Palgrave
For years, Lady Julia Barrowby has acted the part of an old man's ornamental bride, never revealing that she has secretly helped the ailing Lord Barrowby in his work with the Royal Four. Now that her husband has died, Julia believes his place in the Four is hers by right. But convincing the remaining members will not be easy, especially with Marcus Ramsay, Lord Dryden, distracting her at every turn. Somehow, the mysterious Marcus seems to see into her very soul, effortlessly satisfying all her secret, forbidden longings…

Marcus stood next in line to be chosen for the Four, and he is not willing to be displaced by a woman, no matter how intriguing or beautiful she may be. Under orders to investigate Julia, Marcus discovers her diary, overflowing with years of loneliness and yearning. Fulfilling Julia's fantasies is the perfect way to get closer to her, but seducing this fascinating creature is fast becoming more than a means to an end--it is his soul's deepest desire…

This has a really convoluted plot and the only thing that saves it is the strength of the writing. The author was trying too hard to try and get a woman in charge of the men, that it really detracted from parts of the story. Unfortunately, this is an age where women were not respected, not even considered human by "property" of the men in their lives, unless they were rich widows. We don't read these books to do anything other than flake out into a happy space where good triumphs over evil and the girl gets the boy (and has at least some fun along the way).
