For no gentleman is this more true than for Charles
Morwellan, the 8th Earl of Meredith. Although he's seen the
many successful unions of his Cynster connections, he has
also watched his father's obsessions nearly destroy his
family and fortune, a mistake Charles will not repeat. But
as Lord Meredith he must marry, so he offers for Sarah,
daughter of his neighbors, Lord and Lady Conningham. She's
intelligent enough to run his social life, beautiful enough
to grace his arm, and old enough to know the value of his
For most young ladies of the ton, the right marriage is the
culmination of years of training, perfect deportment and
intricate plans and statagems that would impress a general.
But as a lady of independent means with a life of her own,
Sarah is unwilling to surrender her independence unless it
be for unbounded love.
But Charles always gets what he wants. He convinces Sarah
to give him two weeks to win her, after which-if he
succeeds-they will marry immediately. And so begins an
intense courtship. By day, Charles and Sarah are models of
decorum indulging in innocuous walks, polite conversation,
sedate waltzes. But each night they steal away to the lush,
moonlit gardens where sensual embraces turn to searing
kisses, which soon become much more. Both are swept away on
a tide of passion and feeling neither can resist.
But after the wedding, despite nights of insatiable
passion, by day Charles maintains an aloof distance as if
the near-sinful sweetness of their nights exists only in a
dream. Sarah battles to prove that true love is a force
that can't be contained, a gift worth fighting for, but
it's only when she's engulfed in a web of increasingly
dangerous incidents that Charles discovers how much he's
willing to surrender to protect...the taste of innocence.
