Nothing is more seductive than temptation.
Reckless desire sends Charlotte Daicheston into the garden with a dashing masked stranger. He's powerful and unforgettable, a devastatingly handsome footman who lures her - not against her will - into a grand indiscretion at a masquerade ball. Then he vanishes.
Several years later, after Charlotte has made her dazzling debut in London society, they meet again. But the rogue is no footman. He's rich, titled, and he doesn't remember Charlotte. Worse, he's the subject of some scandalous gossip: Rumor has it that the earl's virility is in question.
Charlotte, who knows all too intimately the power of his passion, is stunned by the gossip that has set society ablaze. At last, there can be a storybook ending... unless, of course, Charlotte's one mad indiscretion had not been with him at all.

Heart Wrenching and Beautiful at the Same Time
- Equusdreamer "Day dreaming book lover!"
A Mind "F" in the Best Possible Way
I loved how multidimensional the characters were. I hated them and loved them and I was way more emotionally involved with these characters than is healthy, I'm sure.
I felt it was very similar to Breathless by Anne Stuart and Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. All of these novels have kind of scary and (let's admit it) abusive heroes who make you want to punch them in the face but are written so well you're drawn back to them instantly after the slightest resolution. It's akin to being emotionally dragged into the abusive cycle yourself. It's very disturbing, as your rational mind is telling you the relationship is very, very wrong but your emotional side is rooting for the characters to end up together. So disturbing, but also immensely entertaining.
Yes. Susan Duerden is amazing and she yet again met all my expectations for her narration.
Excellent novel and extremely well written! It's WELL worth the credit!!
