A twist of fate . . .

Devon Ravenel, London's most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl's three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon's own.

A clash of wills . . .

Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:

Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known?

“COUSIN WEST,”KATHLEEN SAID a month later, fiercely pursuing him down the grand staircase, “stop running away. I want a word with you.”
West didn’t slow his pace. “Not while you’re chasing me like Attila the Hun.”
“Tell me why you did it.”She reached the bottom step at the same time he did and swung around to block his escape. “Kindly explain what deranged mode of thinking caused you to bring a pig into the house!”
Cornered, he resorted to honesty. “I wasn’t thinking. I was at John Potter’s farm, and he was about to cull the piglet because it was undersized.”
“A common practice, as I understand it,”she said curtly.
“The creature looked at me,”West protested. “It seemed to be smiling.”
“All pigs seem to be smiling. Their mouths are curved upwards.”
“I couldn’t help it; I had to bring him home.”

Noticing the deliberately bland expression on his face, she asked, “What scheme are you hatching?” He blinked in surprise.
“How do you know there’s a scheme?”
“Whenever you try to look innocent, it’s obvious you’re up to something.”
West grinned. “The girls wouldn’t dare approach you about it, but I told them I would, since it’s been established that I can outrun you when necessary.”

“We knew you were approaching,” Pandora said to Devon, “from all the happy voices we could hear in the entrance hall.”
“He’s not accustomed to people exclaiming happily when he arrives,” West said gravely. “Usually they do it when he leaves.”

“As we both know, Severin loves nothing more than to argue with his friends.”
“Which explains why he doesn’t have more of them.”

West stood and strode to the door. “Is this what it’s like to have a family?” he asked irritably. “Endless arguing, and talking about feelings from dawn to dusk? When the devil can I do as I please and not have to account to a half-dozen people for it?”
“When you live alone on an island with a single palm tree and a coconut,” Kathleen snapped.

“Conversing with strangers isn’t easy.”
“It is if you don’t care what you say,” Pandora advised.
“Or what their opinion of you might be,” Cassandra added.


“If only Cousin West were with us,” Pandora said wistfully. (…)
“I miss him too,” Cassandra said.
“Oh, I don’t miss him,” Pandora told her impishly, “I was just thinking that we could buy more things if he were here to help carry the packages.”

“I want you both to remember,”Kathleen told the twins, “the pleasure of shopping lasts only until it’s time to settle the bill.”
“But we won’t have to do that,”Pandora pointed out. “All the bills go to Lord Trenear.”
Devon grinned. “I’ll remind you of this conversation when there’s no money left to buy food.”

“There’s only one way for me to prove that I will love you and be faithful to you for the rest of my life. And that’s by loving you and being faithful to you for the rest of my life. Even if you don’t want me. Even if you choose not to be with me. I’m giving you all the time I have left. I vow to you that from this moment on, I will never touch another woman, or give my heart to anyone but you. If I have to wait sixty years, not a minute will have been wasted—because I’ll have spent all of them loving you.”
