About the Book

Enchantingly beautiful Catherine Renwick had good cause to despise darkly handsome, insufferably arrogant James Pembroke, Earl of Allandale. It was this deplorable man who on a night of wild debauchery caused Catherine to be abducted and brought to him at a country inn. It was he who took her virtue by force, and left her threatened with disgrace. True, he now was willing to make amends by giving her his name in marriage. And equally true, she had no choice but to accept. But Catherine was sure that nothing in the world could erase her hatred for him or her horror of his embrace. Marriage a la mode. By the standards of aristocratic London, the marriage between the Earl of Allandale and Catherine Renwick seemed the most perfect of pairings. After all, both of them each had the perfect partner. The Earl had ravishing, superbly sensual Lady Caroline Amberly not only as his mistress, but she was passionately in love with him. Catherine had her childhood sweetheart, Ian Maxwell, still totally enamored of her and willing to devote himself to her happiness. What more could a married couple want? The answer came as a shock -- not only to Regency gossips, but to a husband and a wife fighting against their own uninvited desires...
