About the Book
. . .In the game of love…
Georgiana Lucas despises the arrogant and cruel Marquess of Westmorland even before learning that he’s won the deed to her friend Kitty’s home in a card game. Still, Georgiana assures Kitty the marquess wouldn’t possibly come all the way to Derbyshire to throw them out—until he shows up, bloody and unconscious. Fearing that Kitty would rather see him die, Georgiana blurts out that he’s her fiancé. She’ll nurse the hateful man back to health and make him vow to leave and never return. The man who wakes up, though, is nothing like the heartless rogue Georgiana thought she knew…
You have to risk it all
He wakes up with no memory of being assaulted—or of who he is. The bewitching beauty tending him so devotedly calls him Rob and claims she’s his fiancée even as she avoids his touch. Though he can’t remember how he won her hand, he’s now determined to win her heart. But as his memory returns and the truth is revealed, Rob must decide if the game is up—or if he’ll take a chance on a love that defies all odds.
Something inside her seemed to swell and ache for more, as if she’d just been jolted to life from a deep stupor. Her heart beat like a bird’s wing against her ribs. His tongue teased hers, and a shiver of surrender went down her spine as she opened for him. This was what she had feared and craved, all at once, and she never wanted it to end.
He tore his mouth from hers and clutched her to him so tightly she felt his ragged breath vibrate through her. “Don’t go,” he whispered urgently. “Please don’t leave.” He kissed her again, and she almost swooned into it. No, she wanted to say; I don’t want to leave you. She pushed her fingers into his hair and held on, pulling him closer and kissing him back with every fiber of her being.
“Georgiana,” he breathed, his arms trembling around her. “Come with me…”
