Tobias Walcott, the Earl of Blade, has learned it is best to
exercise rigid control over his passions and emotions in all
that he does. Uncaring that it makes him seem cool and aloof
to most in the ton, he is content with his desire to only
woo agreeable and demur females. Then unforeseen
circumstances see him trapped in a closet at a house party
with the last woman he would ever make his countess.
Lady Olivia Sherwood is everything he should not desire in a
femaleâ€”unconventional, too decisive, and utterly without
decorum. But passion ignites between them and they are
discovered. Honor demands they wed, and while Tobias finds
himself unwillingly drawn to the bewitching beauty, he must
do everything not to tempt the passion that burns in him for
her, lest it leads to disastrous consequences.
