Lady Allerton was prone to recklessness. But attending a ball dressed as a cyprian and posing a wager on her virtue had pushed her behavior way beyond the pale!
An Eternal Triangle . . . a lord, a lady and . . . an island!
Beth, Lady Allerton, is determined to reclaim Fairhaven Island, stolen from her family generations before by the treacherous Earl of Trevithick. She challenges the current Earl, Marcus Trevithick, to a wager . . . his island against her virtue!
Marcus Trevithick is intrigued by the lovely incognita who throws down the challenge. Soon he is pursuing her, determined to learn more of her identity and to tempt her into his bed. As both Beth and Marcus race to claim Fairhaven it seems inevitable that the chase can end only in each other arms.
