A headstrong young widow who doesn't want to remarry captivates a dashing rake determined to change her mind in Busbee's latest feverish historical. Asher Cordell will do anything to win the heart of Juliana Greeley, a childhood friend he's long been drawn to. So when his plan for revenge against the nefarious marquis of Ormsby happen to intersect with the plight of Juliana, whose sister is being blackmailed by the marquis, the two join forces to bring down their common enemy, and, of course, sparks fly. Romance veteran Busbee (Surrender Becomes Her) knows how to spin the charms of brave belles and their besotted swains, and though the story can get unbelievably silly, a fast plot packed with clever twists keeps the action and passion blazing.
