A desperate woman…a dangerous man…
London society knows Hart Moreland, the Earl of Perth, as the perfect gentleman—remote, sophisticated, elegant. But Mercy Coltrane remembers him as “Duke”, the steely-eyed gunfighter who shot her six years earlier in a Texas kidnapping gone wrong. When she needs someone to find her missing brother, she decides the earl would be the perfect man for the job.
Hart had returned to London to escape his dark past, never dreaming it would follow him in the form of a flame-haired beauty with blackmail on her mind. When Mercy threatens to expose his scandalous secrets unless he helps her, he is forced to engage her in a tantalizing game of wits, his only weapons masterful touches and stolen kisses.
Mercy knows she is taking a risk by striking a bargain with the devil. But when Hart draws her into his irresistible embrace, tempting her to surrender all she holds dear, she realizes the greatest danger just might be to her own heart…

After many years abroad, the mysterious and aloof Earl of Perth, Hart Moreland, returns to England for a house party celebrating the impending betrothal of his sister. When the outspoken and beautiful Mercy Coltrane appears on the scene, Hart knows he's in big trouble. It turns out that Mercy knows all about the elusive earl's past and, most importantly, remembers him from his Texas gun-slinging days--when he shot her. The witty, endearing heroine and the cool, dangerous hero may be romantic cliches, but Brockway (Promise Me Heaven) keeps the repartee fresh. Things slow a bit after the intriguing prologue, but the pace builds again to an exciting and well-planned finale.
