Wanted: Wife of good family, attractive but not too beautiful, calm, reasonable and mature…for marriage of convenience. Pleasant conversationalist preferred but not required.
Simon "Devil" Dure is as cynical about love as spirited Charity Emerson is innocent of it. But she is certain she can meet his wifely expectations, and he is charmed and amused enough to believe her. Their ensuing engagement is as shocking as it is conspiratorial. With her crazy schemes and her warm laughter, Charity tempts Simon—with more than her body.
Her loving heart seduces him to unlock the shackles around his own. There is no warning, however, of the treacherous trap that lies ahead, or of the vicious act of murder that will put their courage—and their love—to the ultimate test.
