Frances Thorne learned at an early age to rely on herself. Yet, losing her job and her home and watching her father carted off to debtor’s prison all in one day, is too much for her to bear alone. When a generous offer of assistance falls into her lap, she ignores her better instincts and decides to take a chance. The last thing she needs is for the infuriating Lord Lucan Montwood to stand in her way.

The end of the bachelors’ wager is near, and Lucan Montwood can taste victory. Yet, on the precipice of finally gaining freedom from his debts, he’s incensed to learn that the beautiful Frances Thorne has fallen into an insidious trap in the guise of a new position. Lucan can’t deny the way her lips call to him and knows he must risk his own future to ensure her safety.

Convincing her to trust him is the hard part and resisting her is next to impossible. But falling in love with her? That’s far too simple.

“I’m not going to kiss you again,” he said firmly. Yet when he looked down to her mouth, he didn’t seem entirely sure.
Her lips tingled. “I made no request.”
“Yes, you did. You are,” he accused her, lifting both hands to cradle her face. He held her still as he leaned in, not quite kissing her. Not quite touching her with his lips. But almost. “I never should have kissed you in the first place.”
“That’s correct. You only kissed me to make a point, after all.” Unfortunately, she couldn’t remember the point at the moment. The darkness was wreaking havoc with her sense of reason, casting a spell.
“I can still taste you, Miss Thorne.”
A small whimper rose from her throat. His words shocked her. Thrilled her. “What do I taste like?”
“Temptation in its purest form.”

USA Today bestselling author Vivienne Lorret loves romance novels, her pink laptop, her husband, and her two sons (not necessarily in that order ... but there are days). Transforming copious amounts of tea into words, she is proud to be an Avon Impulse author of works including: “Tempting Mr. Weatherstone”, The Wallflower Wedding Series, and the Rakes of Fallow Hall series.
