Previously available as A Secret Desire.

In Shakespearean London, falling in love just became the greatest scandal of all...

Just when Leo, Baron Warhurst, thinks his family’s financial situation can’t get any worse, he discovers that his unwed sister is pregnant. The Warhurst estate is already crumbling thanks to Leo’s father, and unless Leo can make a match with a wealthy heiress, his family will be ruined. Such are the dire straits that bring the ambitious nobleman to the White Swan Inn, where he must suffer the indignity of asking a common seamstress for help spying on his sister’s lover.

Yet Alice Croft is anything but common. She is low-born, yes, but also strong-willed, clever, confident, and bears a luminous beauty Leo cannot ignore. Leo knows that even the mere rumor of a liaison between them could ruin his marriage prospects, but the harder he fights against her, the stronger their attraction grows—until Leo is forced to choose between the woman who stole his heart and the family that demands his honor.

In this unforgettable follow-up to Her Secret Desire, Lord Warhurst’s turbulent love story unfolds with all the wit, passion, and drama that C. J. Archer’s growing legion of fans have come to expect. Download and start listening now!

    " A nice follow up to the first Lord Hawkesbury's players, but not good enough to stand on it's own. If you read book 1, you might enjoy this one. "
