Even the most refined lady craves an untamed man to release
Britain’s high society—le bon ton—loves nothing more
than a good scandal, and they’re giddy with the appearance of wealthy Samuel
Hartley. Not only is he self-made, American, and in the habit of wearing
moccasins, but he is also notorious for fleeing a battle in which several
English gentlemen lost their lives. What le bon ton doesn’t
know, though, is that Samuel is in London because of this
massacre. He believes his regiment was given up to the enemy and won’t rest
until he finds the traitor.
Lady Emeline Gordon is captivated by Samuel. Not only does
he defy convention with his unusual dress, his sensual smile, and his
forthright manner, but he survived the battle that killed her beloved brother.
Samuel suspects that the person responsible for her brother’s death is Jasper
Renshaw, Viscount Vale, a family friend since childhood and Emeline’s fiancé.
Despite Emeline’s belief in Vale’s innocence and her refusal to break off her
betrothal, she and Samuel begin a passionate affair. But can their relationship
survive the fallout from Samuel’s investigation?
