Publisher's Summary

Renowned beauty Lady Linnet is torn between two desires: revenge on those who destroyed her family, or marriage to her childhood sweetheart, Sir James Rayburn. One fateful night, she makes a misguided choice: she sacrifices Jamie's love for a chance at vengeance.
Jamie Rayburn returns to England in search of a virtuous wife - only to find the lovely Linnet as bewitching as ever. Their reckless affair ignites anew, even hotter than before, although Jamie vows to never again trust her with his heart. Then just as Linnet begins to make amends, she's tempted by one last opportunity to settle old scores. But a final retribution could cost her Jamie's love - this time forever.

Critic Reviews

"As in the previous book in her All the King's Men series, Mallory brings history to life, creating dramatic and gut-wrenching stories. Her characters are incredibly alive and [listeners] will feel and believe their sensual and passionate adventures. Mallory raises the genre to new levels." ( RT Book Reviews)

It's a smutty book!

Love that phrase "smutty book." Now I love a sexy story with sexy characters, but I totally agree with Jan's review. Lynette was a pain raising her skirts as if it were merely a way to pass the time bored me to tears. This is a smutty book, I thought. Didn't bother to finish it. I too thought Jamie should have been looking for a woman with more sense. I like Mallory's writing and thought this would be just the thing. Very disappointed. Wait til another Mallory book comes out. In the meantime try a Tessa Dare story.

I'm enjoying the entire series. They are thoughtfully written, and well worth the read. Derek Perkins is a wonderful narrator.
