Thea might have been born a lady, but she’s lived a life of freedom as a simple miss in the West Indies, unbound by the strictures of her title or straight-laced Regency England. She’s unlike any woman Pierson Drake has ever met, but he finds her innocent sensuality irresistible.
The illegitimate son of a duke with no claim on the title, Pierson Drake maintains a level of honor most in the ton only give lip-service to. He is determined to make a name for himself and will stop at nothing to keep what he claims for his own.
Thrown together on a voyage back to England, Drake finds Thea’s innocent sensuality irresistible. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever known. Passion flares between them with enough heat to burn the best of intentions to ash, and once they share a bed for the first time, there’s no going back.
But Thea’s secrets are a heavy burden. With her life hanging in the balance after a devastating betrayal, Drake must take any risk to protect her, and the hope for their future. They have one chance to get it right. . .
