January 2, 2004
Available in: Paperback
Wearing nothing but a man's nightshirt, Fleur Monley woke to find herself in the bed of England's most charming and reckless libertine. But it was stray gunshot, not passion, that put her at the mercy of a man as infamously handsome as he was famously talented in the arts of love. Believing herself immune to any seduction, Fleur thought herself perfectly safe to make him an offer no sensible woman would dare risk: half her fortune for the freedom she would gain by being his wifein name only. Desperately in need of funds, Dante Duclairc could do worse than the "white marriage" proposed by this idealistic beauty too naive to know the danger she courted. But the rashest thing he ever did was tell himself he'd be able to resist the invitation to sin that this lovely innocent would arouse at every turnor that he'd be able to protect her from both the enemies that ruthlessly sought her ruin, and his own dangerous desire.
