She is the one woman in England who refuses to seduce the earl…
To infuriate the ducal father he hates, Dorian, the Earl of Haydon, buys a brothel, intending to turn it into his private harem. Scarred and tormented by horrific events he barely remembers, Dorian uses inventive sensual games to forget his past.
His problem—instead of having nights of pleasure, he ends up with nights of severe frustration, due to a clever, stubborn courtesan named Emma Taylor.
Forced to become a courtesan to support her sister, Emma was promised the brothel for her own. She refuses to be controlled by any man, even a gorgeous earl. To protect her own dangerous secrets, she must drive Dorian away.
In the cat-and-mouse game of seduction and denial, Emma is winning. Until Dorian pulls out a secret weapon.
