Tristan Townsend has come home to London to assume his duties as the Marquis of Lockwood after all the men in his family have died. Desperate to rid himself of the "Lockwood curse" and restore his family's honor, marriage is the furthest thing from Tristan's mind…until he lays eyes on an enchanting stranger and vows to make her his…

But it's too late to walk away now--when the promise of  passion is so wanton, wicked, and thoroughly wonderful….
