The story of Nicholas Montrose, the Earl of Bridgeton, as seen in The Abduction of Julia.
She needs a husband . . .
Sara Carrington has no choice -- her brothers have decided to marry her off to the next respectable man who offers. But Sara has a different plan. If she must marry, she wants a man who won't care what she does, someone who will give her the freedom she craves. The second she sees England's most notorious rake, the rakish Earl of Bridgeton, from across a crowded ballroom, Sara knows she's found the perfect man.
He wants a mistress . . .
Never has Nick received a more tantalizing proposal--but because of his past, he's sworn never to marry. Instead, he agrees to give the innocent chit instruction in the art of seduction to help her plan succeed. But when "demonstration kisses" become burningly real, and Sara turns the tables by applying her lessons to him, the infamous rake is in danger of falling in love -- with the miss he'd only meant to bed!
