Book Synopsis A bargain born of desperation ignites into passion as one lord’s quest
to save his family leads to the discovery that he can never settle for
less than love.
Forsaken, abandoned, and duped, Miss Jemma Adair has no other
recourse but to request her grandfather’s help to avoid living on the
streets. His asking price? She must marry a neighboring lord’s odious
son. Thankfully, there is a way out of her dilemma—ensuring the rake
never asks for her hand. But what is Jemma to do when her ally is an
all-too handsome silver-tongued lord with a penchant for poetry that
makes her question giving her heart to another man?
Philip De Vere, Lord Harthorne, wishes to marry for love, but
inherited debt and family obligations force him to seek a wealthy wife.
Yet experience has taught him that ladies of the ton prefer rogues to
gentlemen with a poet’s soul. But when an unrepentant hoyden claims to
know a thing or two about how to make a man a rake, Philip finds he
cannot resist Jemma’s offer or her.
