All of London Was Abuzz
Sworn never to become leg-shackled to any man, Vivian Reddington dreaded the marriage mart of the current London Season. She simply couldn't act like an addle-brained flirt. But her boredom at one of the endless balls was arrested by a handsome stranger with a jagged scar across one cheek and a devil-take-'em smile. She had seen him before – in the smugglers' caves near her family's country estate. Now she heard the rumors: he was a man responsible for dark deeds, a rake embittered by a broken engagement, a villain who'd killed his own brother to gain a title.
Vivian thought him perfect – for the romantic hero of her secret novel. And Lord Winter thought the fiercely independent Vivian was a woman of quality, a woman who just might believe in him. While neither would admit the tendre between them, neither Vivian nor Winter could keep away from each other . . . even as they found themselves swept into a world of scandalous intrigue – and dangerous, irresistible love!
