Pawned off by her father to a dissolute Earl, spirited Regina Bradford devotes herself to her writing, nursing her secret dreams of becoming a novelist. It isn't long before she attracts the admiration of Prince Viktor Kazanov, a man locked in an equally unhappy marriage. Yet, even as Regina loses her heart to the dashing aristocrat, she dares not surrender completely.
Scandal erupts when Viktor is accused of murdering his faithless wife -- caught in a compromising position with Regina's husband. But as much as Viktor regretted his marriage, he'd never resort to murder. And no one is more stunned than he when Regina testifies to a packed courtroom that he cannot be guilty . . . because he was in her bed that night.
The wave of gossip and intrigue that ensue is just the beginning of an adventure that will change their lives forever. Now, as unseen danger threatens Regina, Viktor must seize his one chance to write the perfect ending to their story.
