A bargain that was all business . . . and pure passion.
Neither wealth nor beauty will help Lady Francesca Gordon
win custody of her young niece Georgina, saving the
girl from a cruel stepmother; she needs London's top solicitor
for that. But when Edward de Lacey, son of
the powerful Duke of Durham, hires away the one man who
can do the job, Francesca decides Edward
himself must champion her case . . . if only she can melt
the dashing lord's stony heart.
Edward has reason to be guarded, though. London's tabloids
have just exposed a secret that could ruin his entire family.
When Francesca offers a unique chance to undo
the damage, Edward is forced to agree to a partnership . . .
and now, each moment together feeds the flames of
his scandalous longing for the passionate widow. But when
Georgina disappears, fate will test them both . . . and
leave their love hanging in the balance.
