"I consider Elizabeth Thornton a major find." —Mary Balogh, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of ONLY ENCHANTING
Briony Langland had no use for the superficial games of the ton. She did, however, have choice words for London's most notorious rake when she caught him dallying with his flavor of the moment in her uncle's library. She never thought that her bold set-down would only inspire his lordship to employ his considerable charms to awaken her own deepest passions.
Hugh Montgomery, Marques of Ravensworth, has never met a woman he couldn't seduce and just as easily forget. But Briony, so self-possessed, so scrupulous, so determined to thwart him at every turn, has awakened something deep inside his cold, self-serving heart—a desire to experience love. His lordship has a few lessons to learn in the art of sweet persuasion…and Briony may be just the woman to teach him.

    “Deny it on peril of your immortal soul, Lady Ravensworth,” he dared her, “that you cherish a tendre for me in your breast.”

    It was so unfair in him to use one of her few virtues to gain mastery over her. How could she answer him? “Don’t count on it, Ravensworth,” she whispered as his lips moved over her face. “A very small flame is easily extinguished.”

    His hands moved to her back, molding her to his length. “But I shall take such pains to fan it,” he responded, capturing her pouting lips with his own

    “Listen to me, Miss Briony Langland. The man you give yourself to will be me or you will give yourself to no man.” His tone gentled. “Don’t you understand anything at all, you foolish girl?” He bent his head to her face, his gaze lingering on every feature, and Briony felt his breath warm against her temple
    Leila Vladhas quoted3 years ago
    Harriet, quite naturally, imparted the information to her beau, Lord Avery, who gleefully told his friend, Lord Ravensworth, in the strictest confidence. That gentleman mulled the information over in his mind. He perceived that there never had been the slightest hope that Briony would ever have accepted what he now came to regard as his preposterous proposal. Not only was she a lady of virtue but, more to the point, she was a lady of independent means
