The Earl of Kingston, Gabriel Langston, like most men his age, rank, and wealth, was a rake. He wasn’t as bad as some, but he was by no means a saint. He had no desire to get married as of yet.
Every Season Gabriel journeyed to London to assist his sister and brother-in-law at keeping the other up and coming rakes from panting after his beautiful nieces. What he hadn’t counted on was the gorgeous little house guest they brought with them…or the effect she would have on him.
Warner Brooke was fortunate enough to join Lord Norbury and his family in London. At the ripe age of twenty-two, she was beyond the age when most girls had their first Season, but she wasn’t about to let that dampen her spirits.
Unlike most young women, Warner was there just to have fun and enjoy her time, not to search for a husband. But upon meeting Gabriel, she concludes that maybe, she might indeed, just want a husband…if that man could be Lord Kingston.
What begins as a few quiet moments alone, beneath the cover of darkness…becomes their rendezvous at midnight.
