Nothing is more seductive than temptation. Reckless desire sends Charlotte Daicheston into the garden with a dashing masked stranger. He’s powerful and unforgettable, a devastatingly handsome footman who lures her—not against her will—into a grand indiscretion at a masquerade ball. Then he vanishes. Several years later, after Charlotte has made her dazzling debut in London society, they meet again. But the rogue is no footman. He’s rich, titled, and he doesn’t remember Charlotte. Worse, he’s the subject of some scandalous gossip: rumor has it that the earl’s virility is in question. Charlotte, who knows all too intimately the power of his passion, is stunned by the gossip that has set society ablaze. At last there can be a storybook ending … unless, of course, Charlotte’s one mad indiscretion had not been with him at all.

Editorial Reviews

“James weaves a web of scandals and surprises, forcing the reader into a delicious surrender.” USA Today
“[An] intriguing Regency romance by a vibrant new voice in the genre who brings a slightly different slant to an era we are familiar with.” RT Book Reviews
“The depth of characterizations, the steady progression of the plot, and the tongue-in-cheek title will attract readers who may just greet James as the next Amanda Quick.” Publishers Weekly
“A fine debut…brings to mind the best of Amanda Quick and Judith McNaught.” Booklist

Author Bio: Eloisa James

Eloisa James, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got an MPhil from Oxford, a PhD from Yale, and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. In 2013 she won a RITA Award for Best Romance Novella. She teaches Shakespeare in the English department at Fordham University in New York. She is the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.
