The temptation of her lips…
Libby Shaw refuses to accept society’s dictates. She’s determined to become a member of Edinburgh’s all-male Royal College of Surgeons. Disguising herself as a man, she attends the surgical theater and fools everyone—except the one man who has never forgotten the shape of her exquisitely sensual lips.
…will make a prince say yes to her every desire
Forced to leave his home as a boy, famed portraitist Ziyaeddin is secretly the exiled prince of a distant realm. When he first met Libby, he memorized every detail of her face and drew her. But her perfect lips gave him trouble—the same lips he now longs to kiss. When Libby asks his help to hide her feminine identity from the world, Ziyaeddin agrees on one condition: she must sit for him to paint—as a woman. But what begins as a daring scheme could send them both hurtling toward danger…and an unparalleled love.

Elizabeth (Libby) Shaw wants to be a doctor like her father. Her father has gone to London for several months and she sees this as an opportunity to go to medical school. Women aren’t allowed in medical school, so she dresses as a young man and uses the name Joseph Smart. She hopes to be an apprentice to a surgeon. While watching a public dissection she meets some other students and one of them, Archie, invites her to go to the pub with him and his friends. As she’s leaving, she notices a man she met two years ago, the artist Ibrahim Kent, and realizes he recognizes her. He follows her and agrees to keep her secret.
Ziyaeddin Mirza, is a mid-eastern Prince in exile using the name Ibrahim Kent. He makes a living from his fabulous paintings. He lost part of his leg and is in pain quite a lot. His sister is still in his homeland and sends a letter to him through a trusted source. She wants him to stay in Scotland until the time is right to come home. Libby decides to move in with him, so she can study in her disguise. He tries to say no but gives in to her. He paints and she studies medicine as they fall in love. Libby sees how hard it is for him to walk and makes him a more functional prosthetic leg.
Then comes the day he must return to his homeland. He gives Libby his house, so she can continue her studies.
There is a lot more going on in this book that I will not spoil. Mystery to solve, Libby’s issues and wondering if he’ll ever return to Scotland. Don’t worry, there is a HEA! I hope you’ll read this wonderful book. Katharine Ashe is an automatic buy for me.
