Married at eighteen and widowed only two years later, Lady Emmaline Stretham has never truly gotten to experiene life. A Season had never been necessary, and locked away with a cruel, unfeeling husband in the countryside of Ireland hasn't given he the chance to truly live.
So when the opportunity arrives to spread her wings a little, and with teh relative freedom of being a widow, she decides to take it. What harm would it do to live a little safe in teh knowldge that she'll never have to marry again?
Dominic Tilton has only ever wanted adventure, freedom, and teh occasional woman to warm his bed. So a summer spent in dreary London isn't exactly his idea of a good time. But after meeting the delectable (if a little shy) Lady Stretham he decides she's as good a distraction as any. After all, seducing beautiful ladies is one of his favourite pastimes.
A secret assignation seems the perfect distraction for Dominic, and the perfect adventure for Emmaline. But the more time they spend together the more Dominic begins to question if he is the seducer, or if he is being seduced.
