Lady Cecily Francis doesn’t really want to marry the man she suspects stole her sister’s heart last Season. When, in a moment of social daring, the ‘Lord Savage’ catches her eye, making her heart race, she devises a plan sure to work to both their benefit. As she sees it, she has something to offer in exchange for a false engagement. But what if what he wants is… her?
The Earl of Augustine knows that around Town he is considered the Lord Savage. Between his Iroquois background and a daughter he claims without having married her mother, the moniker may be somewhat deserved in this closed-minded culture. Eager to wrap up business here and flee back to his homeland, he is struck by a breathtaking beauty at a ball and considers a longer stay on the English shore. But with married ladies vying and betting to be the first to bed him and his own sisters to marry off, will he have time to explore the passion Cecily evokes?
To tamp down on his needs and behave properly is hard enough, impossible with them being quickly drawn into activities that will risk both their reputations. Will they turn a pretend engagement into something more? Or will the machinations of others tear them apart?
The only thing more fun than a man who refuses to bow to social pressure and a woman vibrant enough to meet his fire with her own is a story that manages to have two such couples. Beyond the sensuous tale of Cecily and Jonathon, the reader is also gifted with the sweetly poignant tale of Eleanor, Cecily’s sister, and Elijah. In this well developed world, full of details and emotion, these two stories entwine to make one brilliant tapestry. Altogether a fun, action packed historical marked with sexy scenes and a delicious hero.
