The much anticipated 100th book from historical romance powerhouse Jess Michaels
Once upon a time, a handsome duke was madly in love with a beautiful courtesan. But when his grandmother manipulated him into marrying for position, rather than love, they were torn apart. Now Edward, the Duke of Lockhart, is widowed, out of mourning and ready to pursue the love of his life again.
But Sophia Russell was brokenhearted when she lost him before and she sees no way that it can work out this time any more than it did before. Still, Edward’s seduction is something she cannot…will not resist. So she creates elaborate rules of their affair and hopes she can keep her heart separate this time.
Passion has always been easy for these two, but love will be hard. Especially when a terrible danger becomes clear and their fight for each other becomes one they may die from if they lose.
Heat Level: Courtesans and dukes and a wicked bargain…oh my!

Best One Yet...
I have read her first 100 books and loved each one…..This is her BEST ONE YET….excited to read the next 100...
Ignoring the economy of pain, Edward marries a proper lady and gives up his mistress, Sophia.
Three years later, Edward (now a widower) seeks out Sophia, at an orgy no less. They publicly indulge and Edward begins his campaign for the impossible. To marry Sophia. But he needs to woo and win back her trust.
Better get on your knees, Edward.
An excellent 100th book filled with longing and steam and a charming courtesan in Sophia and a duke who has learned his lesson.
