An innocent letter inspires a wanton passion . . .
Virginal Beatrice Clemens had only the most noble of intentions in mind when she began a correspondence with Captain Percival Carterton, her brother''s comrade-in-arms. She meant for her warm and open letters to ease a brave soldier''s loneliness far from home. For Percy, however, each word was passionate fire, inflaming his need for the unsuspecting young nurse . . . and his desire to touch, taste, love, and possess her forever.
Now back in London, Percy has resolved to win the lovely Beatrice before she is betrothed to another man. Percy charts a course of brazen seduction designed to awaken Beatrice to hitherto unexplored delights, thereby compromising her reputation and forcing her to wed him instead. A bold plan of action involving scandal and surprise, it may open a Pandora''s box of hot, unrestrained sensuality that could carry the virile soldier and his willing lady to ruin-or to breathtaking new heights of ecstasy.
