Desperate times call for extremely desperate measures…
After an exhaustive search for her betrothed, Kendra Smythe realizes no one is going to pull her family from financial ruin but her. Taking her best friend’s advice, she decides to barter her virtue with the most notorious rake in London. It’s not as if her despicable betrothed deserves anything from her after years of neglect. Everyone knows that Derrick Thornton loves to relieve a woman of her virtue and is willing to pay for the opportunity.
All Devlin Thornton, the Earl of Blackpool has to do is impersonate his twin brother while Derrick is on a mission for the Home Office. It should be easy enough, show up at a few of the ton’s best balls and act just like his arrogant, philandering brother. Until a long-legged blonde walks into his brother’s study and offers Devlin a chance to take her virtue.
Using a fictitious name, Kendra offers Devlin a chance with her for five thousand pounds. Instead he offers her a week of pleasure and her virginity intact. As their Week of Pleasure ends, Kendra receives a letter from her missing betrothed. But after a week with Devlin, how can she return to her betrothed?
