Depuis que Serena Barton a perdu son poste de gouvernante, à cause d’un duc sans scrupules, elle se retrouve sans revenus et réclame justice afin de le faire payer. Cependant, elle redoute le bras droit de ce dernier, Hugo Marshall, surnommé le « Loup de Clermont », qui est un homme ambitieux et sans pitié. Chargé par le duc de réduire au silence cette gouvernante importune, il est décidé à s’en débarrasser, car son propre avenir en dépend. Mais plus il apprend à la connaître, et moins il a envie de recourir aux méthodes musclées qui font sa notoriété... Devra-t-il choisir entre ses ambitions et son amour naissant pour une femme ?
At first, all Gareth wants is to free his gullible cousin from Jenny's clutches. But he discovers that she's clever, spirited, beautiful, and not at all the conniving liar that he initially imagined. Still, there's nothing logical about his attraction to her, and so he refuses to give in to it. He's vowed to ruin her, so he will-even if he has to break his own heart in the process.
