They call him many names, but angelic isn’t one of them.

Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the “Bane and Blight of the Ballisters,” and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He’s determined to continue doing what he does best—sin and sin again—and all’s going swimmingly … until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.

She’s too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world.

Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she’s going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him—and with him her family and future—means taking on the devil himself, she won’t back down. The trouble is that the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible that the person who needs saving most is Jessica herself.

    " Some parts, specially at the beginning where disgusting to me. It was also difficult to believe that a man who employed so many courtesans in his life could still be a strong healthy man by the time he got married. "
