Once Burnt – Forever Shy
Anthea Marwood had grown up under the shadow of a brutal father who believed that virtue was to be beaten into young girls. Freed of him at last, she vowed never to place herself in the power of a man again. And above all, certainly not a man like Viscount Giles Radbourne, whose conquests were as notorious as his wealth and charm were famous, and who certainly was not in need of another partner for his pleasure.
But how could the jaded viscount resist the challenge of a lady who vowed never to give herself to any man? And how could Anthea resist this lord who knew so many ways to a woman's heart?
Thus the battle was joined – as the viscount fought against his own better nature . . . and Anthea against a need she did not want to call her own!
