A marriage of convenienceâ€¦full of inconvenient secrets.
Jocelyn Townsendâ€™s life as a courtesan bears no resemblance
to the life she envisioned in girlish dreams. But it allows
her and her eccentric mother to live in relative
securityâ€”until her protector marries and no longer requires
Desperate to find a new benefactor, one kind enough to
accept her motherâ€™s increasingly mad flights of fancy,
Jocelyn is nearly overwhelmed with uncertainty when a
lifeline comes from an unexpected source.
Leo Sherbourneâ€™s requirements for a wife are few. She must
mother his young daughter, run his household, and warm his
bed. All in a calm, dignified manner with a full measure of
common sense. After his late wifeâ€™s histrionics and
infidelity, he craves a simpler, quieter life.
As they embark on their arrangement, Leo and Jocelyn
discover an attraction that heats their bedroom and a mutual
admiration that warms their days. But it isnâ€™t long before
gossip regarding the fate of Leoâ€™s first wife, and his
frequent, unexplained absences, make Jocelyn wonder if the
secrets of Merrivale Manor are rooted in murderâ€¦
Warning: Contains mysterious incidents, a mad mother who
screeches without provocation, scheming relatives, and a
captivating husband who blows scorching hot and suspiciously
cold. All is not as it seemsâ€¦and isnâ€™t that delicious?
