The Lord of Temptation It was a long way from a sheltered English country estate to the dazzling whirl of Vienna where the glittering nobility of Europe had assembled to celebrate victory over Napoleon. For Corinna Darley, it was a journey filled with peril not only for herself but for her younger stepsister, the exquisitely beautiful and thoroughly spoiled Almira Morland.
Corinna knew her duty. She had to protect Almira from the seductions of a city rife with sophisticated sin . . . from the intrigues of an aunt using Almira's beauty for her own profit . . . from Almira's own weakness in the face of folly. But when she learned Almira was to be safely wed to the superbly suitable Justin Ferrington, Corinna did not feel the proper relief. For she was most improperly drawn to this handsome lord -- and had to choose between betraying her trust or breaking her heart. Characters: Justin Ferrington, Lord Lonsdale and Corinna Darley
