Welcome to the glittering world of Regency England and the
passionate lives and tempestuous loves of the Knight family . . .
Driven to uncover the truth about the mysterious death of the woman
he loved, the Duke of Hawkscliffe will go to any lengths to unmask
a murderer. Even if it means jeopardising his reputation by
engaging in a scandalous affair with London's most provocative
courtesan - the desirable but aloof Belinda Hamilton.
Bel has used her intelligence and wit to charm the city's titled
gentlemen while struggling to put the pieces of her life back
together. She needs a protector, so she accepts Hawkcliffe's
invitation to become his mistress in name only. He asks nothing of
her body, but seeks her help in snaring the same man who shattered
her virtue. Together they tempt the unforgiving wrath of Society -
until their risky charade turns into a dangerous attraction, and
Bel must make a devastating decision that could ruin her last
chance at love.
