A desperate lady and an incorrigible rake become caught up in a scandalous game of intrigue and irresistible desire . . .
FIRST ACT -
Treachery and seduction, magnificent entertainment and midnight assignations are part of Lady Somercote's elegant fortnight fete, an event unequalled in London society. It is also Jane Ambergate's only hope for survival. Widowed and penniless, she faces scandal and worse if she does not marry again — and marry well.
SECOND ACT -
But Lord Thorpe, a notorious rogue, has a different role in mind for the breathtakingly lovely Jane: He intends to make her his mistress. And if her fall should become her ruin; he, after all, has never professed to be a gentleman.
A woman who has sworn off love. A man who has never given his heart. And a passion that could destroy or redeem them both!
