Violet, Lady Carrington has been married three times to older men who have all died. She is thirty-one years old now and vows never to get married again - she just wants her freedom. It seems a safe bet to have an affair with a man several years younger than herself, because at some point he will surely want to find a young, innocent woman and start a family.

Lord Peter St. Johns is the man Violet chooses for the affair. He is desperately in love with her. When he asks her to marry him, she refuses, telling him she will never allow a man to control her again. Peter is mystified by her response, but walks out on her, hoping that she will come to her senses.

Peter is distraught when he learns that Violet plans to marry yet another old man (Foxworthy) to save her younger sister Isabella from sharing her fate. Violet knows that her brother Masters is in deep trouble. His only solution is to marry off Isabella. Violet throws herself at Foxworthy but thinks of Peter the whole time. Peter challenges her, claiming that they can work something out together. Violet persuades him to marry her sister and to be good to her. Peter agrees but can they carry out the plan, given their shared passion?

Lavinia Kent's first historical romance is sensual and sizzling. Readers will be enchanted as Violet learns that she has fallen in love with Peter but heartbroken when she tries to break it off with him. The passion that ignites between them will delight readers with every turn of the page.
