A rogue hires a lady to turn him into a gentleman, but he finds he cannot resist giving her lessons on love and desire.

A year and a half after her husband’s tragic death, all Lady Julianna Barrows wants is to be left alone and forget that most of her heart went with him when he passed. Instead, she finds herself the subject of many a matchmaking scheme and lurid offer to ease her widowhood, as well as save her fading fortune. Desperate to avoid an arranged marriage, she takes on a position as a tutor, only to discover that the man she’s helping unexpectedly stirs her heart and passion.

Nash Wolverton boxed his way out of the London slums and into immense wealth, but he couldn’t care less about Society’s approval. Except he has his by-blow daughter’s future to consider. To ensure her acceptance into Society, he’ll endure anything―including procuring a tutor to transform him into a gentleman so he can secure a suitable, boring wife.

Yet what he wants changes the moment he hires the widow Julianna. She may be a lady, but she’s far from tedious. Bold and compassionate, she is nothing like the women of the ton. Suddenly, she’s elicited a simmering desire in him, and even a longing to love and be loved that he always thought out of his reach. Knowing what he planned to settle for can now never be enough, he vows to win her love. But as the walls she’s built begin to crumble and a second chance for Julianna seems possible, her fears threaten to destroy all and she alone must decide if protecting her heart trumps breaking Nash’s.

Much like every other woman who has ever come in contact with Alexander Warrene, eighteen-year-old Tiffany Marlowe is utterly captivated by the handsome and charming Earl of Chesterfield, despite his reputation as a shameless rogue. 

With no pressing desire to alter his unfettered lifestyle, Alex knows that Tiffany, the innocent young beauty who rouses his passion like no other, is strictly off-limits, even though he might wish it otherwise. However, when Tiffany’s father presents him with an unexpected proposition, an unorthodox wager that could finally afford him something else he’s wanted for a very long time, he suddenly has a decision to make, whether or not he is willing to risk the bachelorhood he so heartily enjoys. 

Unaware that she has become an innocent pawn in a long-standing contretemps between her father and the Earl of Chesterfield, Tiffany willingly surrenders her heart to the man she adores, and soon discovers the true meaning of desire under Alex’s skillful tutelage. However, when Tiffany unwittingly learns about the secret wager between her father and Alex, both her heart and her dreams are suddenly shattered. 


Forced to acknowledge his true feelings for Tiffany once and for all, Alex knows that he will not only have to earn her forgiveness, but also regain her trust, if he has any hope at all of recapturing the heart of the woman he has come to love above all else.
