The Caddish Captain Captain Robert Ashton had all counts against him as far as Lady Sabina Bromley was concerned.

Sabina vowed that never would she surrender her hand to this man she had so many reasons to despise. But one thing she had not counted on: It was not her hand that was most vulnerable to the devastatingly handsome Captain Ashton's ardent attentions . . . it was her lips!
