She'd never forgotten him . . .
Miss Octavia Pierce is witty, well-off . . . and shockingly unwed.

What theydon't know is that, years earlier, Octavia was scandalouslytempted by the one man capable of sweeping her off her feet--the man now known as the Marquess of Doree.
A third son, never meant to inherit, Lord Ben Doree hasabandoned his past and grown accustomed to his illustrious new position of wealth and power. But he has never forgotten Octavia, and now she desperately needs his help in a most dangerous, clandestine matter. Although she claims she has put the memories of the passion they shared behind her, Ben is determined toonce again have her in his arms--and in his bed.
