All he wanted was to safeguard his secret.
As a man who spent years living in the shadow of his brother's scandalous reputation, Anthony Dempsey fought hard to regain the credibility of his family name. His unwavering sense of duty is renowned and admired. But when a tragedy strikes that could lead to his total ruination, he is forced to withdraw from society in order to keep his secret and protect those close to him.
How ironic that he should finally meet a woman who captures more than his interest. Indeed, Sarah Roxbury is a dazzling beauty who ignites the flame of passion in his heart, awakens a craving deep in his core.
But how can he think of love? How can he commit to anyone when the truth is sure to bring nothing but devastation and despair?
All she wanted was his surrender.
Sarah Roxbury has spent her life being praised for her beauty. Gentlemen would fall in love with her luscious lips and captivating countenance, or so she had been told. In truth, she wanted to be loved for her wit, her intelligence, for her kind and forgiving heart. But she had only ever met one man who could see past the superficial.
Anthony Dempsey was an enigma. He was charming, intelligent, interested in more than her beguiling smile. Then as quick as the wind could blow out a candle, he appeared cold and indifferent?
What was he hiding? Why did he refuse to recognise the attraction that sparked between them?
How could she convince him to surrender to the power of love?
