Lord Ferdinand Dudley is accustomed to getting what he
wants...that is, until he appears at the door of Pinewood
Manor, attempting to claim his rightful estate, and is met
by the bewitching fury of Lady Viola Thornhill. She
refuses to cede him the home she calls her own. He refuses
to leave. So the contest begins. Each day under the same
roof brings its share of frustration...and temptation. But
Viola knows it is a battle she cannot afford to lose.
Marriage is out of the question, and she will be no manâ€™s
mistress even as Dudleyâ€™s unnerving presence threatens to
melt her resolve. Against his better judgment, Lord
Ferdinand Dudley is beguiled. This maddening beauty has
stirred him as no woman had before. And now he is bound
and determined to make her his own.
