Genre: Historical, Romance

For the first time in her life, Hedley Sinclair holds the keys to her own future. She’s inherited the crumbling Greyson Park, but the disrepair does nothing to dissuade her. No one will ever lock her up again or attempt to take away what’s hers. No one except Rafe Danvers—the charming, fiendish man from Fallow Hall. He’s determined to claim Greyson Park, but if Hedley isn’t careful, he’ll claim her heart as well.

Rafe has every intention of ridding Greyson Park of the conniving Sinclairs, once and for all. The last thing he expects is to find the beguiling Hedley Sinclair—the younger sister of his former fiancĂ©e—standing in his way. With drastic measures called for, he plans to marry her off in order to regain control of the estate. The only trouble is, he can’t seem to stop seducing her. Even worse, he can’t help falling in love with her.

The soles of Rafe Danvers’ boots slid on the path. His left leg shot out from beneath him, stretching him farther than any man dare. And when his foot collided with the stranger’s, he catapulted her into the air. Still holding her hand, he tried to save her. Arms locked, outstretched, he caught her—or more so—she crashed into him. Sideways. Her elbow glanced off his nose. Her bottom collided with his stomach. Wind barreled from his lungs. And before he knew it, he was flat on his back. The woman landed hard on top of him. A curvy bit of baggage. Sprawled over him, she was soft and plump in all the places that a man enjoyed.
