What lady would ignore the most basic rules of propriety? What reason could she have for flouting convention? And if she is found out, will she be ruined forever?
Selfless widow Lauryn Applegate Harris is determined to retrieve the deed to her beloved father-in-law's estate-lost during one of his drunken gambling spells-even if it means offering herself as a courtesan to Earl of Sutton, who now owns the land. No one need know Lauryn's other motive: secretly. she's always longed to dabble, just a little, in sin!
The handsome earl is frankly amused. Clearly this winsome and delicate lady has no experience with such wicked behavior. Yet drawn by her beauty and thinking t teach her a lesson, he agrees. But after weeks of pleasure, it's the earl who finds he has the most to learn, as an outrageous proposal turns into a delightfully amorous tryst with possibilities no one could have predicted. But can love grow from such shocking-and duplicitous-beginnings?
