The student becomes the master in the precarious game of love.
Sexually adventurous widow, Countess Meredith du Chevalier takes Chris Whitby under her wing to teach him the ways of love. At Lord Whitby’s request she will “make a man” of his son, an intriguing challenge. But Meredith gets more than she bargained for when her pupil becomes her tutor in what true love really means.
Beneath his reserved demeanor, Chris hides a passionate nature. The young botanist travels to Meredith’s country estate to restore her abandoned greenhouse, but one sexual encounter brings more than fallow soil to life. Glimpses of the tender woman under the seductress’s brittle exterior make him determined to slowly coax his mistress to unfurl into glorious bloom.
When Chris learns about the secret arrangement between his father and the countess, his heart and confidence are destroyed. Can he forgive his lover, and will Meredith risk her heart for a chance at deep and lasting love?
