Brianna Morris was a scrapping redheaded urchin with all the drawing-room graces of a stableyard puppy. Nevertheless, Andrew Ormsby, sixth Duke of Ashford, was honor-bound to take his orphaned cousin in, while her brother went to war with Wellington. But who would protect Brianna's guardian?
Leaving the incorrigible hoyden in the care of a governess, the duke fled Ashford Hall for the more sophisticated pleasures of London — and of the sensuous Lady Beryl. Impetuous and headstrong, Brianna plotted to free her all-too-willing cousin from Lady Beryl's elegant clutches. But Brianna's scheme backfired spectacularly, landing the blossoming young beauty square between the ducal sheets. Andrew's unsuspecting kisses teased her innocence and left her aching for his touch!
Called away to the continent, Andrew tried to deny what all of London knew — that he was utterly besotted with his high-spirited ward. In her debut, Brianna took the ton by storm . . . and when Andrew returned at last, she dared a final, shocking escapade to take her beloved's heart captive, once and forever, in the splendid joy of passion's triumph!
