Lucien de Clare is England's handomest and most brazen lord, a man whose scandalous
When Elinor Ashton's father forces her into a loveless marriage to satisfy his debts, she becomes the unhappiest bride in London society…and the property of Lord Kingsley, an elderly and enormously wealthy man whose jealousy leads him to concoct an unspeakable scheme.
Lucien de Clare is England's handomest and most brazen lord, a man whose scandalous behavior made the doors to polite society close against him. This makes him the perfect pawn in Kingsley's despicable plot to secure an heir. But the plot for a deceitful seduction of Elinor leads to true desire, as Lucien is overcome by Elinor's beauty and charm. Neither trecherous intrigue nor vengeful deeds can temper their desire for forbidden kisses, or dampen the fire that fuels their love.

*I just discovered this fabulous a author and I am so pleased... highly recommend
Ive read well over 100 romance novels, and can say with no small amount of knowledge/experience, that this was a wonderful reading experience, a story to be savored, and was well worth the time a money. Loved the main characters as well as the secondary and only wish that the author wrote a couple follow ups featuring them as well.
The story line is really impressive. The two main characters learned valuable lessons and forged a better future for themselves.
This book was recommended to me by a friend. It is extremely well written with interesting plot twist. It. The dialog is engaging and sometimes very funny. The author does a great job at developing and bringing depth to her characters. This is not the typical historical romance. It is definitely a must read. I highly recommend it and will be reading more by this author.
