Decimus Pryor is one of London’s most notable rakes. He saunters through life, trysting with young widows and making people laugh. But rumors have spread that his skills in the bedroom are overrated. The young widows are laughing at him, not with him, and slamming shut the doors to their boudoirs.
Eloïse Fortrose has always spurned Decimus’s advances, but when he rescues her from highwaymen, she discovers that there’s a lot more to this Casanova than meets the eye.
What better way to heat up the chilly autumn nights than to indulge in a brief liaison? They’ll frolic between the sheets, laugh a little, restore Decimus’s standing as a rake, then go their separate ways.
Eloïse doesn’t believe in love and neither does Decimus . . . but love is coming for them both, whether they want it to or not.
This Regency romance contains one dashing rake, one beautiful young widow, three hapless highwaymen, a master of disguise, and a sprinkling of magic.
