Synopsis

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

Now a New York Times Bestseller!

"A dazzling debut brimming with passion, romance, and wit."
-Sophia Nash, RITA ward-winning author of Secrets of a Scandalous Bride

An earl who can't be bribed...

Gayle Windham, earl of Westhaven, is the first legitimate son and heir to the duke of Moreland. To escape his father's inexorable pressure to marry, he decides to spend the summer at his townhouse in London, where he finds himself intrigued by the secretive ways of his beautiful housekeeper...

A lady who can't be protected...

Anna Seaton is a beautiful, talented, educated woman, which is why it is so puzzling to Gayle Windham that she works as his housekeeper.

As the two draw closer and begin to lose their hearts to each other, Anna's secrets threaten to bring the earl's orderly life crashing down-and he doesn't know how he's going to protect her from the fallout...

"A luminous and graceful erotic Regency...a captivating love story that will have readers eagerly awaiting the planned sequels."
