An adventurous beauty meets a charismatic beast in the USA Today–bestselling author’s scandalously sensuous Regency romance.
Jude Bertrand is not an excellent dancer. Nor does he wear the most fashionable coats. But when Marissa York's brother approaches him, desperate to preserve Marissa's tenuous reputation, Jude does prove heroic enough to offer to marry the girl. In fact, the union should more than make up for his lack of social graces—and his own scandalous past.
Marissa knows that betrothal to the son of a duke—even one as raw and masculine as Jude—will save her from ruin. But that doesn't mean she's happy about it. Soon, though, she finds that Jude has a surprisingly gentle touch. And he plans to use it to persuade Marissa that their wedding day cannot come soon enough.
USA Today bestselling author Victoria Dahl started reading romance at an inappropriately young age and hasn’t stopped since. Fortunately, all those years of reading helped her recognize her Prince Charming when he arrived, and she now lives in the mountains with her husband and two children. During the summer, she hikes with her family. During the winter, she likes to curl up with a book and a cup of hot cocoa and think about all those poor, cold skiers out in the snow.
