It's not every day a duchess comes across a naked man on the roadside. It's not every day a duchess takes said naked man home with her. But Evelyn Chesworth can hardly leave the poor man in nought but his skin on the dangerous road to London. Particularly when he's so attractive...
Lord Pierce Cynfell is in a world of trouble. With his brother threatening to cut him off and his gambling debts increasing, his beautiful rescuer couldn't have come at a better time. He can't help but be attracted to the worldly, mature woman.
So he certainly isn't going to say no when she offers to write off his debts in return for one thing--his body.
However, it soon becomes clear more than his body is becoming involved. While everyone else might think he's only there for the money, the beautiful widow slowly draws him deeper until he wants to unlock every secret buried beneath those tight corsets.
Evelyn might let Pierce beneath her corsets but she's determined it will be no more than that. She has loved and lost twice in her life and won't let that happen again. Meanwhile, she has too many other things to worry about--like the preservation of her son's land.
When Pierce begins to show himself as more than a skilled lover, Evelyn has a choice--let herself be vulnerable again or send away the man who lights a fire in her body, heart and soul.
