The wallflower turns wild…
Lady Violet Everstone is quiet, obedient, and not the type of woman Tristan Buchanan usually pursues. If she wasn't so shy, she might find the courage to grant the viscount a smile. If she were brave, she would try mending his broken heart. She’s loved him since childhood, but wallflowers like herself are rarely noticed. Rather than risk certain heartache, she must abandon the foolish dream of becoming his wife.
Tristan, Viscount Longleigh, never expected his sister’s dearest friend to drop into his lap like a wayward kitten. While he’s hardly noticed Violet before, he certainly cannot ignore her now. Provoking this lush redhead until the hidden fires in her eyes roar to life becomes his greatest desire. Although she’s promised to another man, Tristan vows to show Violet she can claim her own destiny.
And that kiss they share?
It tempts fate and leaves Tristan with a decision to make.
Will he remain the carefree bachelor while his wild Violet is crushed by responsibility and duty?
Or become her knight in shining armor and sacrifice his heart for love?
"Honeybee, I haven't a drop of honorable blood in my body. I'm cold. Selfish. Hollow. And I greatly enjoy the reputation my cruelty has gained me."
They call him the Winter Wolf.
Nicholas March has few morals. fewer friends, and a notorious lack of honor.
And his heart? What remains of it is cold, desolate and locked away. He learned long ago the lessons of betrayal. Never trust a woman. Recognize others will expect the worst. And no matter the cost, always retain control of any situation.
Grace Willsdown has no patience for Society's silly games and no desire for the imprisonment of marriage. When a secret lien against her home is revealed, everything she treasures lies clenched in Nicholas's palm. She must make the Devil's bargain to save it all.
Five nights of pleasure and the claim will be dissolved. But neither Nicholas nor Grace anticipate the depths of their desire after their first night together. Consuming. Tender and brutal. Boundaries become distorted. What is the bargain? And what is true emotion?
Will they brave the storms and fires to unlock their love? Or turn their backs when the five nights are done?
A sip of poison.
From the moment I see her, I want to...
Make her mine.
I Want Her.
Not to be trusted.
My heart aches and I want to...
Explain my guilt.
Beg his forgiveness.
Feel his lips on mine.
I Want Him.
