After her husband’s death, Elizabeth Ashton knows she must remarry — and fast. But not just any man will do. She must find Lord Ashton’s long-lost bastard nephew and convince him to wed, cementing his claim to the family fortune and rescuing Elizabeth from certain ruin. Her desperate search will reveal a world she never knew existed — and a love she never dreamed possible…
Forced into prostitution to protect his darkest secret, Gideon spends his days pleasuring London’s wealthiest women. Only one hope burns inside his guarded heart: that someday he will escape the gilded confines of Lady Lavender’s brothel and reclaim his freedom. When a widow hires him for a two-week-long seduction at her country estate, he spies his chance — never imagining the young beauty will reawaken a passion he thought long dead…
Bound by desire, only together are they strong enough to face their enemies — and to claim the promise of love.
About the Author
As a child, Lori Brighton relished the thought of a life filled with adventure in far-off places. Determined to become an archaeologist, she earned a degree in anthropology — only to discover that digging in the dirt beneath the punishing sun wasn’t much fun. She packed up her love of history and took a job in an air-conditioned museum, yet still her thirst for adventure wasn’t satisfied. And so she began to write, bringing the people in her imagination to life on the printed page. With her debut novel Wild Heart, she finally married her loves of history and adventure. Today she is the author of more than a half-dozen historical romance, paranormal romance, and young-adult novels.
