Dare to Kiss - Jo Beverley Beverley often takes interesting risks in her stories, and she takes a bunch of them here: our hero has a very unattractive deformity of his jaw (hence the title), our heroine is an adulterous, lustful, scheming widow with five children! The blurb is completely off by the way -- Sir Benjamin is nothing but kind to them all, and Lily is the one with the ugly secret.Lilly's not unprincipled, she's just desperate enough to use her physical attractiveness to ensure her family's safety -- and she's looking forward to getting herself an energetic younger husband into the bargain! It's a little hard not to see Ben as a bit of a fool for falling for her so quickly though. For a story that takes so many risks, it doesn't do much with them and there's very little real tension.
