Synopsis

Lady Lisette, the determined to be independent sister of Demetrius (Deme) Willingham, 4th Marquis of Fielding, has been doing everything in her power to avoid Elisha Roulle, Viscount Marston. Lisette can scarcely believe her unconventional mother, the Duchess of Wimberly, actually expects her to agree to the match. But once Lisette makes it clear to the viscount she's not interested and he politely withdraws, she is feeling unexpectedly contrite and in conversing with him afterwards, realizes that despite his "dark" looks he's not so much aloof as...solitary. Elisha was drawn to Lisette Willingham like a moth to a flame. Given his dark past, he drinks every moment of being with her like a man thirsting for water. Lisette is life, breath, the sun and everything he had never known. But when she finally makes it clear she doesn't want to wed, he also realizes he could not bring such a vivacious creature into the nightmare of his world. A man of secrets and pain, Marston had watched her for many months and ached in his soul for just a moment in her presence. When Marston is invited to Lord Monty's estate and Lisette is there to visit her friend, Lady Juliette, the real tension between them flames, and Lisette has an ache of her own to discover what lies behind that dark mien and complex character. In the heat of passion they cross all barriers, but by now Elisha is determined to keep that darkness hidden from Lisette. When his mother dies, he leaves abruptly, and with the words, "Do not love me," breaks Lisette's heart. But being of the wild Wimberly clan, Lisette's friends and family rally her to go after what she wants. But will walking into Elisha's world be the answer which her heart longs? Is she up to the challenge? And for Elisha, will she be able to love him when all the secrets come to light?
