Forbidden fruit. The one thing the rakehell Duke of Netherford swore he'd never do was give in to the temptation offered to him by his best friend's younger sister. But now, Miss Felicity Carvel is all grown up, and more ravishing than ever. Some rules were made to be broken...
Welcome to Moonlight Square ~ Regency London's Most Romantic Address!
Six years ago, Jason Hawthorne, the Duke of Netherford, made it clear to the young, lovesick Miss Felicity Carvel that nothing could ever happen between them. He has earned his reputation as a libertine--and the lovely innocent is his best friend's sister. But six years of wild hedonistic pleasures have left Jason empty and jaded, while Felicity has blossomed into a strong, beautiful woman, ripe for love and marriage. When a sudden windfall makes her one of the most sought-after heiresses in London, Jason knows he must step in to protect her and keep the fortune-hunters at bay until her brother returns from his dangerous mission abroad. Unfortunately, Jason is the last person whose help she'd ever want.
Still smarting from the humiliation of throwing herself at the handsome, dark-eyed rogue only to be rejected, Felicity has watched from a distance over the years, heart aching, as her beloved Jason wandered ever farther astray, seeking escape from the hidden wounds in his past that have turned him into this lost soul. When he appoints himself her temporary protector until her brother returns from abroad, Felicity can't seem to get rid of him. Worse, the attraction between them has only grown with the passage of time. Deep down, Felicity still wants Jason for her own. But after getting her heart broken once before by the infamous rakehell, does she dare attempt to play with fire again--and this time, can Jason resist?
