An artist stumbles upon a naked duke and an unlikely love story begins in this captivating Victorian historical romance.   When Royal Academy painting student Lucy Coover trips over a naked man passed out in an East End alley, she does the decent thing. She covers him up and fetches help. Trouble is, she can't banish his muscular form from her dreams as easily. Compelled to capture every detail, she creates a stunning portrait but is forced to sell it when the rent comes due. What could be worse than surrendering the very picture of your desire? Meeting the man himself.  Anthony Philby, Duke of Weston, is nobody's muse. Upon discovering the scandalous likeness, he springs into action. His infamous family has been torn apart by shame and secrets, and he can't afford more gossip. Even a whisper may jeopardize his inheritance and his chance at independence. His plan is simple: burn the painting, confront the artist. Or rather, it's simple until he meets Lucy and decides to offer the bewitching young artist a devil's bargain.  He'll help save her foreclosed home, if she'll help repair his family’s brutal legacy. An irresistible passion ignites between them, but when danger strikes, Lucy and Anthony must risk everything... for a love that might destroy them both.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lushly dark, riddled with secrets, and seductive…[The] sense of authenticity never falters, making this the most Victorian of romance novels.” Entertainment Weekly
“This love story tackles weighty issues but remains suspenseful and spellbinding.” Library Journal (starred review)
“It’s a lush, sensual and outstanding romance that makes the heart ache in the very best way.” BookPage
“Narrator Mary Jane Wells doesn’t miss a step in delivering this entertaining and well-crafted love story…Wells is equally skilled at portraying the Duke’s upper-crust British accent and Lucy’s working-class voice. Wells also infuses each of the supporting characters with a distinct and appropriate accent, easily recognizable and well selected. A most enjoyable listen.” AudioFile
