NATHANIEL EPPERLY, the Earl of Eggleston, has married the woman his father has chosen for him, but the marriage has been everything but comfortable. Nathaniel's wife, Lady Charlotte, came to the marriage bed with a wanton's experience. She dutifully provides Eggleston his heir, but within a fortnight, she deserts father and son for Baron Remington Craddock. In the eyes of the ton, Lady Charlotte has cuckolded Epperly.
ROSELLEN WARREN longs for love and adventure. Unfortunately, she's likely to find neither. As a squire's daughter, Rosellen holds no sway in Society; but she's a true diamond in the rough. Yet, when she meets Epperly's grandmother, the Dowager Countess Eggleston creates a "story" for the girl, claiming if Rosellen is presented to the ton as a war widow with a small dowry, that the girl will find a suitable match.
BARON REMINGTON CRADDOCK remains a thorn in Eggleston's side, but when Craddock makes Mrs. Warren a pawn in his crazy game of control, Eggleston offers the woman his protection. However, the earl has never faced a man who holds no strength of title, but who wields great power; and he finds himself always a step behind the enigmatic baron. When someone frames Epperly for Lady Charlotte's sudden disappearance, Nathaniel must quickly learn the baron's secrets or face a death sentence.
