Faced with a forced marriage to a loathsome neighbor, Elizabeth Woolcot can only appeal to her powerful guardian, Nicholas Warring, for aid. Unfortunately, Nicholas, Earl of Ravenworth, is known as the Wicked Earl for good reason. Convicted of murder, he barely escaped hanging. When she meets Nick for the first time, Elizabeth is compelled by his darkly handsome face--and his charismatic manner. But no matter how strong the attraction between them, Elizabeth can never be his, for Nick, although estranged from his wife for years, is married.
As the days progress, Nick's hunger for Elizabeth grows. Then a heinous crime shatters their lives...and Nick is the natural suspect. Elizabeth wants to believe in his innocence more than life and love itself--but can she trust a man who has killed before?
An Excellent story -- moves along quite well -- the seduction scenes rate a 31/2 -- Elizabeth Woolcot rates a 2 in moral fiber -- I mean adultry no less???? Read morePublished on Sept. 7 2001 by M. Hartmann
