St. Martin's Paperbacks

With the last of her family possessions gambled away by her dissolute brother, Lady Sarah Compton has traveled to a country house gala for one last moment of grace and beauty. But she is unaware that the occasion is actually a notorious trysting event, where members of the aristocracy can indulge in their every sensual fantasy and erotic whim. Nor does she realize that the striking man who has stolen into her bedroom is none other than Michael Stevens--a rake who gives and takes his pleasures boldly...

When the lady refuses to heed Michael's warning--to leave the house for her own protection--a powerful attraction grows, and soon, he longs to tutor the very proper Lady Sarah Compton in the art of passion...
