A dutiful woman, a desirable man...
Claudia Prattley may be a successful society artist, but her domineering father still holds sway. When he orders her to marry the man of his choosing, Claudia must resign the position she loves. When she tenders her resignation to dashing newspaper owner Derrick Middleton—the man she secretly adores—she is shocked when he refuses to let her go. Middleton has plans for Claudia, and though she knows she should resist, she’s drawn in despite herself.
Until Claudia first entered his London office, Derrick cared for only his paper and the wild bachelor life he has long enjoyed. Now saving Claudia from a dismal marriage—and winning her for himself—becomes his passion. But courting a woman like Claudia will not be an easy undertaking for a handsome cynic who has always believed true love is not for him—especially after they succumb to an indiscretion that could lead them both to ruin...of a most delicious variety.
