". . . romance with mistaken identities, wicked villians, strong women and men who are strong enough to accept them as equals." ~Shamim Morani

The death of her husband freed Serena Riverton from life as an abused sex-object. Now, her brother plans to sell her to another vile man.

This time, Serena flees, but finds herself stranded and near penniless. When a passing gentleman offers help, Serena accepts, and develops a new plan: become a rich man's mistress so she can leave at any time.

Believing herself barren, Serena initiates a passionate encounter with her rescuer. However, Francis, Lord Middlethorpe is already committed to a sweet-natured lady. He finds Serena refuge with an elderly relative, and must return to his life. Then Serena discovers she's pregnant.

They have no choice but to marry, but assailed by Serena's scheming brothers, Francis's appalled relatives and Serena's painful past, is there any hope for the loving future they both seek?

From The Publisher: Author Jo Beverley is known for her consumate attention to historical detail that wisks the reader back in time to a near first-hand experience. Fans of Regency romance and historical British fiction set in the 19th century, as well as readers of Jess Michaels, Mary Balogh, Christi Caldwell, Stephanie Laurens, Madeline Hunter and Mary Jo Putney will want to read every book by Jo Beverley.

Please Note: Story contains references to the heroine's sexually abusive first marriage that some readers may find disturbing.

I really tried to understand these characters , but in the end I feel like I wasted my money and also my time as I struggled to finish this book. The hero and the heroine were both irritating it's like they both had bipolar disorder .

This book was not so good..I had a lot of problems with this one..let's start with there is a group who call themselves the hell can u in be a rouge when you're a virgin and absolutely no scandal attached to your name...then serene was basically a sex slave to her older husband for 8 years.. then such ' s him one night while he is sleeping and she gets pregnant..he Web married her and let's just say that after that there was no connection for me.. his character was lacking, he was to noble and the sex scenes were lacking and there was no romance..this book was a waste of my time..I found my self skipping pages and praying for it to be over..
