Lady Valeria Arnold went through marriage without ever
experiencing the physical delights the union promises.
Now widowed and immured on a farm in the country, with
her only chance of romance a boorish neighbor who does’t

the dashing, rakish, entirely unsuitable Teagan
Fitzwilliams turns up at a scandalous bachelor

course to change his life forever--and claim this woman
uncommon grace his own for a lifetime.
