Lucinda Potter, daughter of a wealthy merchant, is more interested in trade than in the men after her dowry. When forced to have a London season, Lucy sets out to enjoy herself rather than to find a husband. But once she meets the notorious Earl of Wyvern, her resolve weakens, and when they kiss, it dissolves—even though her instincts warn he’s dangerous. Wyvern has a dark secret, which means he must win a rich bride. Lucy seems ideal—not for her beauty and her lively charm, but because at first meeting she seems unlikely to realize the truth... As he comes to really know her with each intoxicating kiss, Wyvern realizes she’s too clever and honest by far. Marrying Lucy would mean living a lie with the woman he has come to love.

From bad science and oafish behavior to stomach-turning procedures that hurt more than helped, Strange Medicine presents strange but true facts and an honor roll of doctors, scientists, and dreamers who inadvertently turned the clock of medicine backward: • The ancient Egyptians applied electric eels to cure gout. • Medieval dentists burned candles in patients’ mouths to kill invisible worms gnawing at their teeth. • Renaissance physicians timed surgical procedures according to the position of the stars, and instructed epileptics to collect fresh blood from the newly beheaded. • Dr. Walter Freeman, the world’s foremost practitioner of lobotomies, practiced his craft while traveling on family camping trips, cramming the back of the station wagon with kids—and surgical tools—then hammering ice picks into the eye sockets of his patients in between hikes in the woods. Strange Medicine is an illuminating panorama of medical history as you’ve never seen it before.
