An undeniable rogue meets his match in a spirited heiress in this "strong and spicy"* regency romance debut from Darcie Wilde.
It's no wonder that Phillip Montcalm is better known as the "Lord of the Rakes." With an extensive list of conquests, Phillip has truly earned his reputation as the most dangerous seducer in London. Talk of his prowess as a lover and his ingenuity in the bedroom are enough to make even the most prudish of ladies succumb to temptation. But as of late, Phillip has found himself a bit bored. Until he sets his eyes on a fiery newcomer.
New to independence and London, gorgeous heiress Lady Caroline Delamarre wants to make the most of her life. And when Phillip meets her gaze, she knows the perfect place to start is in his arms...and in his bed. But what begins as a long night of breathtaking passion leads to more than the two bargained for. Haunted by troubled pasts and inescapable family entanglements, each of them must decide if they can risk a gamble on what might be true love.
