She had no idea what passion was, Until she saw them...
Lady Alain needs a husband, and Quintin Wyntor will do just fine.
She will offer him a mutual agreement of respect and independence— As long as he never visits her bed to claim his marital rights.
But seeing him with a man, with Calder, changes it all. For better—and for worse. Passion stirred. Desire ignited. And yet, she still never wants to touch or be touched.
But Quinn's heart is shattered when his lover walks away so he decides to explore his feelings for Celeste to ease his broken heart. In one unchecked moment of passion, mutual need spins out of control and bringing Calder home now may just be impossible.
Will Celeste give in to what Quinn wants for her?
Or will she stand her ground and hope they find another way…
This book is the story of Celeste and has her happily for now. It is also the beginning of Calder and Quinn's story which will be continued in THE SPARE AND THE HEIR.
Warning: this book has a cliffhanger ending for Calder and Quinn, but is very much part of their story.
Warning: this is not a kissing book, but it is a dirty, dirty book
Warning: You're going to fall in love, and it's going to hurt.
