- Book 2 of The "Compromise" Series
Convinced by her godmother that reformed rakes make the best husbands, the beautiful and willful Clarissa Derhurst is on the hunt for just such a man. Only a rake can give her the passion she needs to keep from becoming a vain, unhappy woman like her mother. But finding the right rake is no easy task. When she meets Lord Wolviston, the ‘lone wolf', she starts to believe he might be able to give her the passion she craves. No other man makes her heart beat so fast. But can she reform his wicked ways—and is she even certain he is all that wicked?
After his father's crippling accident, Evan Fortesque became burdened by family responsibilities. Now that his father has passed on, and as the new Lord Wolviston, he's come to London to sow a few belated wild oats. When he overhears that a spoilt beauty won't look twice at a respectable gentleman such as himself, he decides she needs a lesson—and this is just the lark he wanted. He'll pretend to be a rake she won't be able to reform. But instead of finding a vain, silly girl, he starts to glimpse the passionate woman underneath Clarissa's defenses. And then Clarissa attracts a real rake to her side. Now Wolviston must keep Clarissa from being compromised? But how can he do that when he's starting to want to seduce her himself?
