After fifteen years in cruel exile, Christian has finally
returned to England to claim his rightful title. The new
Earl of Egremont was a mere child when he was banished.
Lovely and charming Julianne Lowell, who knew him then,
must now determine if this suave and handsome mystery man
is who he claims to be.
But why would she not remember those eyes that sparkle
like flawless gems? Christian is like no man she has ever
met -- elegant and well-bred, but secretive and quite
possibly dangerous, and seething with a sensual fire that
steals her breath away. To trust this dashing stranger
could place Julianne in grave peril if he is, in fact,
playing a game of deception. But with her heart leaping
madly at his slightest touch, how can she deny Christian
the love and passion they both fervently desire?
