She wasn’t looking for love . . .
Her beauty rivaled only by her sensibility, Venetia Lanyon is nearly resigned to spinsterhood, thanks to the enormous amount of responsibility she inherited with a Yorkshire estate, an invalid brother and the lackluster efforts of two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then she meets her neighbor, the infamous Lord Dameral, a charming rake shunned by polite society — exactly the type of man that a woman of quality should stay away from . . .
He wasn’t looking for redemption . . .
Though his scandalous past and deepest secrets give Venetia every reason to mistr… show more ▼ust him, a rogue always gets what he wants. Without warning, his demanding kiss threatens to become a bachelor’s undoing . . . and a spinster’s most passionate awakening.
