Bestselling author Nicole Jordan writes intensely seductive tales of wicked pleasures and undeniable love. Now she tempts readers with her most daring romantic adventure yet. . . .
To escape marriage to a despised man twice her age, Lady Aurora Demming makes a scandalous arrangement with Nicholas Sabine, a dangerously handsome American facing execution for murder and piracy. She agrees to become his wife for one day . . . and one glorious, intoxicating night. Widowed, Aurora returns to London society with Nicholas’s orphaned sister at her side to face a lifetime without love—until her “dead” husband returns, insisting that she honor their vows and haunting her dreams with promises of forbidden desire. . . .

From the Paperback edition.
