Marry in haste... Scandal is nothing new to Evelyn Cosgrove. Years ago, she sacrificed everything--her good name, her lifelong quest for adventure and freedom--for another. She is resigned to a life without love, marriage, passion. Until a dark, handsome stranger appears on her doorstep, determined to save the woman his cousin ruined and abandoned to society’s cruel disdain years ago. Tempted at the chance for respectability – and the hand of a sinfully handsome lord – Evie accepts his offer of marriage, determined to keep him at arm’s length so he’ll never learn the truth, that she’s an imposter far from the soiled dove everyone believes her to be. But with one smoldering kiss, the temptation to surrender to her husband’s bed may be impossible to resist… Seduction at leisure... Shameful peccadilloes are nothing new for the black sheep of the Winters clan. All the men of Spencer’s family are notorious for their wild ways, but as the new viscount, he vows to right at least one of their many wrongs and marry the girl his cousin bedded and abandoned to scandal years ago. A small price, he decides … until he meets the chit, and thoughts of bedding her consume him. Suddenly a marriage of convenience is the last thing on his mind as he wages a battle of seduction to land the prickly and thoroughly enticing Evie in his bed.
