Description

Passion...Intrigue...Scandal...Some marriages have it all. Lady Margaret Landor first met Sebastian Townshend as a child. Tall, dashing and handsome, he cut a romantic figure, and she never dreamt that one day she would be living at his family's magnificent estate with his father, the Earl of Edgewood, as her guardian. But by this time, Sebastian has been banished after a duel which ended tragically. When Margaret starts to fear for the life of her beloved guardian, she suspects his younger son may be impatient to succeed to the title. She travels to France to enlist the aid of the one man she believes can help her ...and discovers that Sebastian has taken on the identity of The Raven, a deadly mercenary who undertakes any mission however dangerous. Sebastian has vowed never to return to England, but Margaret persuades him to pose as her husband in order to uncover the plot against his father. A fierce passion flares up between them despite their frequent clashes, and as they uncover the dark intrigue they fall relentlessly and passionately in love.show more
