I don't really think that this book is erotic romance, more like steamy?? The plot was a little over the top, but pretty good.

Phoebe is a new widow. Her husband that died was not a nice guy and killed himself and their 3 year old son in a carriage accident. She also suffers a miscarriage and believes she can no longer have children.

She fakes her death and then masquerades as a man, Philip (Phizz) Marston. Few people know her secret identity. She makes a lot of enemies from winning at gambling.

Lord David Hervey the Earl of Linseley has lost his wife, though he didn't really have a marriage per say. He comes to London to find a new wife and meets Philip whom he is immediately attracted to.

He ends up finding out who she is and tries to protect her from her enemies. She had threatening letters sent to her but the people they think might be responsible for the letters aren't.

I won't say who did, but I guessed toward the beginning of the book and was right.
