Sir William Christie, a ruthless self-made tycoon, is dead. His four adult children born to three different women gather for the reading of the will, only to learn that he's offered each sibling a test, rather than riches. Born out of wedlock to Sir William and a French dancer, Lady Vivienne Bancroft endured life in a Parisian slum until Sir William adopted her after the death of her mother. Keenly aware of her bastard status, Viv longs to gain financial independence and end her arranged marriage to a sexy viscount with a penchant for cognac and poker-but the searing passion ignited in their marriage bed may be too difficult to give up
