Back cover copy

She wanted a favor, not a fiance...

Audrey Blake's impromptu plan--asking a visitor to help her take ownership of her rightful property--is unraveling in spectacular fashion. Audrey has been kept in virtual seclusion by her family, and now the enigmatic Robert Henslow, Earl of Knightsbridge, has complicated her scheme to gain independence, insisting they pretend to be engaged.

Duty brought Robert to Audrey's doorstep. As for what makes him propose might be guilt. Compassion. Or something far more urgent and unexpected. Their counterfeit union was supposed to be for Audrey's benefit. Yet it's Robert who yearns to prove to the intriguing Audrey how much they both have to gain by making it real--and convincing her to submit to the most blissful passion.
