Sir Jason Hunter could not let a young widow fall into ruin when he could so easily help. His intentions were purely honorable, but then the lady herself surprised him with an offer of a carte blanche!
Helen Marlowe's despicable brother had left her nearly penniless, and she knew that becoming Jason's mistress was the only practical solution. She told herself the decision was made with her head, not her heart, and had nothing to do with the way this notorious rake made her feel — or the look in his eyes that promised such heady delights!
