And now she's willing to risk almost anything-her reputation, even her virtue-to find out. But what he proposes startles her.
Ruel instantly senses that shy Lady Cranfield could be the sweetest, most submissive experience of a lifetime-if only he can gain her total and complete trust. He offers his help in return for her submission and obedience.
Neglected as a child by her ducal parents then later ignored by her handsome, charming husband, Lady Cranfield learnt to protect her heart at all costs. She trusts no one but herself.

Blackmailed by a vicious, powerful aristocrat, common-born, gentle-natured Rebecca Howland is in desperate need of help. From the shadows steps forth a man offering her aid--a man she once rejected. A changed man with a dark, mysterious past.

What if sensual indulgence is the only way out of her darkness? However, those she loves the most control the young widow through manipulation and coercion.
Honor bound to protect Lady Blayne, James will not risk his heart. He must wed a socially appropriate heiress. Scandalously self-indulgent Lady Blayne won’t do. Yet the pretty girl he once knew has grown into a beautiful, curvaceous woman—every man’s dream. Especially his.
