Every woman needs a devil by her side.
Rachel Davis would rather risk death than remain a prisoner of the ruthless man intent on gaining her inheritance. Trapped on a private train with the villain, she makes a desperate bid for escape and runs into the arms of an unlikely savior. Aristocratic, arrogant, and deeply cynical about love, Lucas Grainger is her last choice for a husband--even a husband of convenience. But desperate times call for desperate measures: taking Lucas to bed and submitting to his tender, hungry desires may be her only hope. . .
Lucas Grainger has sworn never to take a wife, but he's not about to let anyone else marry Rachel. He has his own reasons for marrying the gentle, quick-witted widow, reasons she need not know. But holding Rachel night after night awakens deeper hungers than he has ever known, and a calculated marriage soon yields to a blissful, blinding--and dangerous--passion. For if Rachel knew who Lucas really was--of the dark secrets that haunt him--she'd never choose him as her protector. . .
Theirs is a union both erotic and enduring, and any man who tries to part Lucas from the woman he loves will have the devil to pay. . .

It's only the 2nd Diane Whiteside that I've read but I did enjoy it. SHe has a few others that I've been eyeing.
On Christmas 1867 before attempting to flee her captivity by Albert Collins, Widow Rachel Davis insures her mom and sister are safe. Her family breaks free, but Albert and his son Maitland retake Rachel. His plan is for her to marry Maitland so that the Collins can fully control her late husband Elias¿ trust fund.------------------- Her only hope is her late spouse¿s former secretary Lucas Grainger he rescues her from Albert¿s thugs. While he hides who he really is from her, he continues to risk his life to keep her safe. Lucas knows he must break his vow to never marry as he realizes wedding Rachel and siring a child with her who would inherit the estate is the only way to block the diabolical Collins. However, he never considered that the Collins have no problem making her a widow for the second time.------------------- Although the Collins father and son are over the top as villains with no redeeming qualities, the latest Diane Whiteside ¿Devil¿ tale (see THE SOUTHERN DEVIL) is an exhilarating Reconstruction Era romance. The vivid details of the train ride bring to life the post Civil War era, but the story line belongs to the hero and the lady is distress as fans will root for them to survive so their love can thrive.--------------- Harriet Klausner
