The first book in a brand new historical romance series by fan favorite and perennial New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas.

A twist of fate…

Devon Ravenel, London’s most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities … and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl’s three innocent sisters are still occupying the house … along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon’s own.

A clash of wills…

Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains: Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she’s ever known?

    " Full review: I first read this book in paperback and loved it and when it became available on MP3 I was excited since I have a long daily commute. I love all Lisa Kleypas' books and this one did not disappoint. The first time I read this in paperback, I felt Kathleen was too strong a personality and too much of a shrew. In listening again to the story, I decided she was just plain smart, since she had figured out Devon far better than I had. Fortunately, in the world of romance - the man had a true change of heart so that she could open hers to him. Love the side story of Reese Winterborne and can't wait to hear/read his and Helen's story! "
