Frederick Stoneham is an unapologetic rake, thoroughly enjoying his position as one of London's most disreputable rogues. When his father arranges for him to wed Lady Eleanor Ashton, a well-bred marquess's daughter, he's perfectly agreeable. After all, the girl he remembers is not the type to demand his attentions or insist he abandon his mistress. But when he becomes reacquainted with his betrothed, he realizes he's made a terrible mistake--far more so than he ever imagined.
Eleanor is devastated to learn that her father has arranged for her to marry Frederick Stoneham--the wild, hellion of a boy she has secretly pined after all these years, despite his shocking reputation.
They both beg off the engagement: Eleanor because she's scared he will break her heart; Frederick because he thinks he's not worthy of her. But when they are forced to travel together to Devonshire, Frederick's true nature is revealed--and Eleanor finds herself drawn to him once more, unable to resist getting to know the man behind the carefully created facade.
Their passion in undeniable, but can Eleanor risk her heart to a rogue? Can she find Frederick worthy, when no one else ever has?
