Until her final assignment brings her face-to-face with the man who'd once taught her an intimate lesson in heartache….Meets London's most disreputable rake…James Devlin has everything he's always wanted: a title, a rich fiancée and a place in society.

But because the secrets she carries could cost him everything. To put the past to rest once and for all, Dev just might have to play Susanna at her own wicked game….Let the seduction begin!
