Lucien, the Earl of Stenfax has been engaged twice, but only in love once. That was with his childhood sweetheart, Elise. When she threw him over for a man with more money and a higher ranking title, it broke everything about him and he became a shell of who he once was. He swore he would never love again, and he’s stuck with that. However, now Elise is widowed, available…and he finds himself drawn to her again, like a foolish moth to her powerful flame.
Elise had her reasons for walking away from Lucien, reasons he doesn’t understand and she cannot tell him, for fear of hurting someone they both love. Back in Society, she’s now financially desperate and is even considering becoming someone’s mistress. But Lucien keeps appearing at the most inopportune moments and it’s only a matter of time before the powerful desire that still simmers between them explodes into a passion that will sweep them both away.
Time will tell if Lucien will be able to see past his lusty drive for revenge. And if Elise can convince him she’s worthy of more than just his body, despite the past.
