A Mischievous Widow . . .
When the dashedly handsome Duke of Tremont summoned Anne Templeton home to England, the lovely young widow left Jamaica with a wary sigh. Seven years before, as a foolish green girl, she had jilted Giles Templeton in favor of his cousin. Now she was forced to face the man she'd so grievously wounded... and so dearly loved. The worst of it was, she adored Giles still. But he was so frightfully proper now, with nothing boyish or teasing in his cool, gray eyes. He was undoubtedly in need of a woman's care — and this summer at the seaside Anne meant to see he had it!
A Proper Gentleman . . .
It had seemed a simple enough thing to do, taking charge of his late cousin's affairs. Giles was, after all, head of the family. But as soon as he looked into Anne's vibrant blue eyes, he knew there was nothing simple about his feelings for her. More beautiful than ever, flamboyant, headstrong, she was just the sort of vixen who would turn a man's well-ordered life upside down. Well, he was beyond that sort of thing, and good riddance. After their summer at Brighton, he would send Anne packing and get back to business . . . but not before he'd given the minx a taste of what she'd been missing all these years!
