Through a mix-up at an inn on a stormy night, Charlotte Hendricks finds herself compromised.
Charlotte is sent off to family in the ‘country’ to avoid gossip. But her luck still runs poorly as it turns out the very rakehell himself, Lord Landis, owns the land that abuts her uncle’s and another unlucky encounter brings her to his attention again. And once more he will not take ‘No’ for an answer. He applies wiles, charm and blackmail to make Charlotte submit.
How far will he go to get what he wants? How far will she go to protect those she loves? And do either
of them count on how deeply their words and actions will change their lives?
