No one knows this better than Miss Cleopatra Hadley, who
went from poverty to plenty when she discovered one of
England's richest men was her true father who wanted her to
share his wealth . . . if she married into the upper
echelons of Society. A high price to pay for someone whose
mother taught her just how dangerous a marriage could be.
An imposing yet impoverished Scots nobleman, Lord Logan
McKinney knows he must wed some vapid title-hunter with a
substantial dowry in order to restore his once-thriving
estate. Having the vibrant Cleo nearby, however, makes his
task even more unpalatableâ€”for she tempts him like no other
woman . . . just as he's precisely the sort of man she most
fears: exciting, unpredictable, fiercely passionate. But
when attraction proves too powerful, they succumb to a kiss
that quickly leads to lessons too scandalous for even the
darkest nights . . .
