‘Today’s superstar heir to the marvellous legacy of Georgette Heyer’ Susan Elizabeth Phillips
When adventure calls in the form of a handsome aristocrat, will Viola Kingsley throw all caution to the wind?
Two years after the death of the Earl of Riverdale, his family has overcome the shame of being stripped of their titles and fortune – except for his one-time countess, Viola. With her children grown and finding herself no longer part of the social whirl of the ton, she is uncertain where to look for happiness – until quite by accident her path crosses once again with that of the Marquess of Dorchester, Marcel Lamarr.
Marcel Lamarr has been a notorious womanizer since the death of his wife nearly twenty years earlier. Viola caught his eye years ago, but she evaded his seduction at the time. She is all the more irresistible to him now.
When the two defy convention and run away together, they discover that the ties of respectability are not so easily severed, and pleasure can ensnare you when you least expect it . . .
