Publisher's Summary

In Victorian England, vice of every kind can be purchased, and Matthew, the Earl of Wallingford, makes certain he avails himself of every possible pleasure. Bored and jaded, he is as well-known for his coldness as for his licentious affairs with beautiful women.
While these numerous dalliances fulfill Matthew’s every physical need, they secretly leave him numb and emotionally void. Until one night, when he finds himself beaten, eyes bandaged and in the care of a nurse with the voice of an angel—and a gentle touch that soothes the darkness in him and makes him yearn for more.
Yet Jane Rankin is a lowly nurse, considered shy and plain by most. There is no place for her amongst the lords and ladies of the aristocracy—despite Matthew’s growing craving for the fire that burns behind her earnest facade. And then there is Matthew’s secret. A secret so humiliating and scandalous it could destroy everyone he loves. A sin, he fears, not even the love of a good woman can take away….

Gets better as it goes

As I listened to the beginning of the book I thought it was going to be all about sex and lacking in depth and plot. I almost considered turning it off. Glad I didn't. This book does have a good story and definitely gets better as it goes.

Disappointed

I read the other reviews and decided to purchase this book. I found it long and unfulling. Both charaters were cowards and a disappointment. I found the end a sham considering the time period in which the book was set. It felt like the author wrote herself into a corner and couldn't find a way out.
