Rogue. Libertine. Rake. Lord Courtenay has been called
many things and has never much cared. But after the
publication of a salacious novel supposedly based on his
exploits, he finds himself shunned from society. Unable
to see his nephew, he is willing to do anything to
improve his reputation, even if that means spending time
with the most proper man in London.
Julian Medlock has spent years becoming the epitome of
correct behavior. As far as he cares, if Courtenay finds
himself in hot water, it’s his own fault for behaving so
badly—and being so blasted irresistible. But when
Julian’s sister asks him to rehabilitate Courtenay’s
image, Julian is forced to spend time with the man he
loathes—and lusts after—most.
As Courtenay begins to yearn for a love he fears he
doesn’t deserve, Julian starts to understand how desire
can drive a man to abandon all sense of propriety. But he
has secrets he’s determined to keep, because if the truth
came out, it would ruin everyone he loves. Together, they
must decide what they’re willing to risk for love.
