The daughter of immigrants, Natasha Polinoff has always been on the fringes of society. When she meets a handsome and charming young viscount, she follows her heart and embarks on a passionate affair. After her parents throw her out, she soon depends completely on her lover.
Living under the shadow of his late, profligate father, Marcus Templeton finds love and peace in the arms of his new mistress––until that love conflicts with fulfilling the obligations of his inheritance. Terrifying her with his demands, he loses Natasha into the dark of a cold, London night.
Five years later, Marcus has finally freed himself from the strictures of his inheritance by making his own fortune. But after years of independence Natasha won't risk an affair again. Determined to have her as his wife, Marcus will do whatever it takes–– even if he must resort to a little blackmail.
Each book in the Group of Eight series is STANDALONE:

Too much angst
I thought the story was OK except for the anger she clung to after they married. I guess I just believe in choosing to be happy. If I had a rich husband who loved me, cared for our child and whose mother welcomed me, I think I could be mature enough to make it work!!!
This is an ok read ...too long! To much anger and not enough romance! Really drug myself through the last 300 pages
