So when Jack is named sole heir to the duke's personal possessions, the beautiful, well-bred lady is outraged. Now, Olivia is forced to share her beloved home with this despicable man. Caught between the devil and desire But Olivia's icy disdain is no match for Jack's dangerous charm. His touch awakens desire. His kiss demands surrender.
