Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The third book in the “superbly entertaining” (Booklist) Regency historical series from New York Times bestselling author Julia London.When Harrison Tolly learns he is the rightful heir of Ashwood, he tells the messenger he does not want it. He is already the steward of vast holdings of the Jameson family, which includes the Viscount Carew and his wife, Lady Carew, and he has a young, pregnant wife.  How could he give that up? 

But Harrison Tolly has a secret. The young woman is not his wife, but the sister of Lady Carew, who had been impregnated by her sister’s husband, Lord Carew. Harrison Tolly has agreed to pretend she is his wife because he has been secretly in love with Lady Carew since the earl brought her home after a London Season. Olivia Jameson, Lady Carew, is unaware of Harrison’s devotion to her. She is trapped in a loveless marriage, and does not know that he is the one who has begun to secretly woo her with small, discreet gifts, and messages. Writing letters to this Scarlet Pimpernel (and signing them Lady X), she realizes she is falling in love with him, whoever he may be. And after an unexpected tragedy occurs, the identity of her mysterious suitor becomes known when he comes to her room in the middle of one steamy night…. 

Synopsis:

The would-be Earl of Ashwood sets his romantic sights on a forbidden prize in the enchanting third novel from Julia London’s addictively sexy new series.

The surprising news that dashing steward Harrison Tolly, illegitimate son of the Earl of Ashwood, is the rightful heir to his father’s estate comes at a most inopportune time. With a wedding on the horizon and a baby on the way, a new life of privilege and prestige would be a blessing but for one problem: his heart belongs to another woman.

Harrison keeps his desires for his employer’s wife, Lady Olivia Carey, so hidden that even she does not know of his devotion. Her callous husband, Marquis Carey, went into a rampage after Olivia’s troublesome younger sister returned from her tour of Spain pregnant, and Harrison impulsively stepped in to save the entire family from scandal. Now, like Olivia, he is trapped in a loveless arrangement. When a tragic accident claims the marquis’ life soon thereafter, can Harrison seize his chance and cast aside one sister for another? Or will doing so expose the Carey family’s darkest secret—and ruin his only chance to win Olivia’s heart?
