He was looking for love. She needed a defender. Together, they could have everything.
The death of Lady Cordelia's husband left her at the mercy of his cruel heir, a distant cousin who makes her an offer she has to refuse. Desperate to escape a dishonorable fate - and protect her stepdaughter - she accepts the first honorable offer of marriage that she receives – the powerful and stern Marquess of Dunbury. She was prepared to be the perfect, placid, accommodating wife… she never expected the passion and sinful pleasure her new husband brought to their wedding night.
The Marquess of Dunbury was enamored of Lady Cordelia from the moment he met her and laid his claim immediately. Once she's his, he can't keep his hands off her, even when they risk being caught during secret rendezvous just outside the ton's ballrooms. He sees everything she doesn't believe she is and he's going to make her see herself the way he does.
Everything would be perfect... except for one person who is determined to ruin Cordelia's newfound happiness.

Great story that combined a historical romance with lots of sexy scenes and enough suspense and emotions to keep you interested. The characters are well done and make you care what happens to them as well.
I would love to have a relationship like Phillip and Cordelia!
Everyone wants to be loved and in this case Stepmother and Stepdaughter had no real affection or guidance in their previous relationship. Philip brought out the best of them with firm guidance. Who knew.....Philip could save them both.....April H, FL
