It’s curious how one woman can haunt a man…
 
Ten years as a high-stakes jewel thief should have helped me forget Sophie Huntington Ramsey. But no matter how far I traveled, she was never far from my thoughts. Her earthy sensuality. Her wild passion. For ten long years, my memory of our one forbidden night together burned as hot as the encounter itself. The thought of her betrayal with my oldest, dearest friend blazed even hotter. 
 
Imagine my surprise when I heard of Sophie’s widowhood—and that her husband the Duke of Mulford,  named me guardian of her young son! Imagine my shock when I learned that Sophie might have had a hand in her husband’s untimely death.
 
It seems that fate has brought Sophie and me together once again. When I return to England to claim my role as guardian, I also vow to win back Sophie’s heart. I will slowly seduce her until she is weak with wanting. And when I’ve had my fill of her, I will expose her as a murderess.
 Sophie Huntington Ramsey, the Duchess of Mulford, is about to get something she never bargained for…  
From the Memoirs of Grant Chandler

Sold to the highest bidder!Many a lady would rejoice at the notion of becoming a Duchess. But I was stricken with horror. How could I wed a stranger when I love another? Alas, neither tears nor beseeching softened Papa's stern
