Synopses & Reviews
When Richard and Rose visit his family estate in Derbyshire to celebrate the christening of their firstborn, Rose comes face to face with some hard realities about the powerful Kerre family. The vast majority of them are far from delighted with Richard’s choice of wife. Plus, they think a man who shares his bed with his wife every night must have something wrong with him. Rose is driven half mad by Richard’s overly careful love for her. Somewhere underneath that smooth, sophisticated surface lies the passionate, intense lover she longs for—and she takes steps to seduce that savage lover back into her bed. Their joyous occasion is marred by the theft of a valuable necklace. Richard’s family looks to him to solve the crime—but something isn’t adding up. Evidence pointing to two trusted servants seems too convenient…and then they’re murdered. From the tangle of jealousies, secrets and desperate lies, Richard and Rose once again dance on the edge of danger to achieve justice—without dragging the family name into public scandal.
Not all the powerful Kerre family is happy when Richard fell in love with a country nobody. A man who shares his bed with his wife—every night—must have something wrong with him, they say.Richard’s tender care of his beloved Rose is driving her mad. So she decides to seduce him back to the ardent lover that still lies under the sophisticated surface. It isn’t as if she hasn’t done it before. Then a necklace is stolen. Theft turns into murder and before they know it, they’re knee-deep in intrigue.All that and dealing with family scandals too!
