Aristocratic, elegant, and effortlessly charming, Michael Anstruther-Wetherby is a man destined for power. With his close connections to the influential Cynster family, Michael's future in Parliament appears assured, except that he lacks the single most important element of success: a wife.
Driven to seek a gently bred young lady, he discovers such a paragon. But there is an obstacle in his path: her beautiful, strong-minded young aunt, Caroline Sutcliffe.
A woman of style and status, Caro will not sacrifice her cherished niece to an unhappy marriage. However, Michael suddenly has his eye on Caro herself. But danger is stalking Caroline Sutcliffe. It will take great courage to protect her -- and every ounce of Michael's seductive charm to convince her that becoming his bride will bring her all her heart desires ... and more.
