Beloved New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh has
written her most beguiling novel yet, in which the black
sheep of the scandalous Huxtable family finally meets his
match - in a woman of even more wicked reputation.
'The Devil was about to be tamed.' 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 lover - and not just any lover, but
the most dangerous and delicious man in all of upper-class
England: Constantine Huxtable.
Constantine'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 isn't so easy to
extricate oneself from the fires of desire - 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.
