Lady Laura Rosing knows two things: first, she will marry for love, and second, she detests rakes. When she meets Lord Gavin Farris, she understands immediately that he fails both her criteria, and worse yet, he is an absolute cad who refuses to leave her be.
Lord Farris has always appreciated women and cannot understand why Lady Laura is so resistant to his charms. While pretty, she is not his usual type, but something about her intrigues him. Much to his chagrin, he finds himself desperately in love with her, but he may be too late. His adamant refusal to marry just might have planted her firmly in the arms of another.
“Perfectly nice? That is how you view me? What happened to dangerous?”
“You have hardly been deserving of the title.”
He sent her a piercing gaze and asked, “You do realize you are now in a perfectly acceptable social class, don’t you?”
“I always was in an acceptable social class, but what does that have to do with anything?”
The pair rounded a corner of the maze and were now located outside of view of the house. “I could not behave the way I wished when I thought you belonged to a lesser class. Now I can.”
“As a gentleman…” Her words were cut short as Lord Farris captured her in his arms. His lips descended on hers, engulfing her and chasing away all thoughts.
