Synopses & Reviews
From the nationally bestselling author whose novels are “delightfully entertaining” (Philadelphia Inquirer) comes the provocative tale of a gentleman with a secret…and the independent lady he is determined to win in the ultimate game of love.
For Brand Hamilton, its a challenge most men would avoid at all costs: to seduce the ravishing, reluctant Lady Marion Dane while avoiding that long walk to the altar. But Brand, the baseborn son of a duke with a bright future in politics, has his own compelling reasons for courting Marion. . . .
With her impeccable bloodlines, Marion cant help but question Brands motives. And Marion has her own problem to solve: an unseen enemy is stalking her, and Brand is the only one who can help. Desire is the wild card-an uncontrollable passion that catches them both by surprise. Now, with society abuzz over their unconventional courtship, they embark on a journey that will take them from the glitter and intrigue of London to a decades-old secret hidden in a far-off English village-and a love that could prove the most irresistible snare of all. . . .
