â€śThe Devil was about to be tamed.â€ť
Her name is Hannah Reid. Born a commoner, she has been
Duchess of Dunbarton ever since she was nineteen years old,
the wife of an elderly duke to whom she has been rumored to
be consistently and flagrantly unfaithful. Now the old duke
is dead and, more womanly and beautiful than ever at thirty,
Hannah has her freedom at last.
And she knows just
what she wants to do with it. To the shock of a conventional
friend, she announces her intention to take a loverâ€”and not
just any lover, but the most dangerous and delicious man in
all of upper-class England: Constantine
Constantineâ€™s illegitimacy has denied him
the title of Earl, so now he denies himself nothing . . . or
so the ton would have it. Rumored to be living the free and
easy life of a sensualist in his country estate, he always
chooses recent widows for his short-lived affairs. Hannah
will fit the bill nicely.
But once these two
passionate and scandalous figures find each other, they
discover that it isnâ€™t so easy to extricate oneself from the
fires of desireâ€”without getting singed. For the duchess and
the dark lord each have startling secrets to reveal, and
when all is said and done, neither will be able to say which
one fell in love first, who tamed whom, and who has emerged
from this game of hearts with the stronger hand.
