Sometimes the opportunity to misbehave is very tempting indeed, even for the most well-bred young lady.

Marry the local vicar—a stodgy man with six impossible children—never! Deborah Percival is determined to discover passion in a man’s arms, not duty in a dull marriage. And when she becomes stranded at a countryside inn, tantalizing Anthony Aldercy, the Earl of Burnell, offers her the chance to fulfill her dreams. Deborah knows she should say no—but how can she resist?

The Lady is tempted . . .

The earl is determined to repair his roguish reputation—and a marriage to a demure highborn lady of the ton will do this—but he cannot deny Deborah’s charms. Her lush curves tease his senses, while her delicious honesty touches his heart. But when she disappears, he’s desperate, so he searches all of London to find her, refusing to rest until he brings her into his life—and his arms—again.

Perhaps Deborah is not the only one being tempted . . .
