Set against the seductive backdrop of Regency England,
New York Times bestselling author Mary Baloghâ€™s
latest novel sweeps us into the sensual, enthralling world
of an elite academy for young ladies. Here, amid music
lessons and garden parties, whispered confessions and secret
yearnings, one of the schoolâ€™s teachersâ€”headmistress Claudia
Martinâ€”will find her well-ordered world jolted by love when
she meets a man who would make the perfect husbandâ€¦for
Tall, dark, and exquisitely sensual,
he is the epitome of male perfection. Not that Claudia
Martin is looking for a lover. Or a husband. As owner and
headmistress of Miss Martinâ€™s School for Girls in Bath, she
long ago resigned herself to a life without love. Until
Joseph, Marquess of Attingsborough, arrives unannounced and
tempts her to toss away a lifetime of propriety for an
affair that can only lead to ruin.
Joseph has his own
reasons for seeking Claudia out. Instantly, irresistibly
attracted to the dedicated teacher, he embarks on a plan of
seduction that leaves them both yearning for more. But as
heir to a prestigious dukedom, Joseph is expected to carry
on his familyâ€™s legacy. And Claudia knows she has no place
in his world.
Now that world is about to be rocked by
scandal. An arranged marriage, a secret that will shock the
ton, and a man from Claudiaâ€™s past conspire to drive
the lovers apart. But Joseph is determined to make Claudia
his at any cost. Even if that means defying convention and
breaking every rule for a love that is everything he has
ever wantedâ€”a love that is perfection itselfâ€¦
