Naughty by Nature

Barbara Pierce

St. Martin's Paperbacks

Patience Rose Farnaly was easily lured away from her wealthy family by the false love of a dangerous man. Rather than face a grim future on the streets, Patience struggled to find honest work as an actress. But when the irresistibly charming Earl of Ramscar offers her legitimate employ in London as a lady's companion to his sister, Patience snaps up the chance…although her attraction to Ramscar leaves her on shaky ground.

Ever since a devastating fire left his sister brutally scarred, Ramscar vowed to protect the little family he has left. Now that Patience has been hired to be his sister's companion, his conscience is clear--even if his imagination won't let him rest. Haunted by fantasies of the beautiful, beguiling Patience, it's only a matter of time before they enter into an illicit affair--one that might threaten Ramscar's status among les sauvages nobles if Patience's dark past comes to light…and could destroy them both.
