The sensual, high-spirited novels of Betina Krahn never fail to entertain. Now, the bestselling author of The Perfect Mistress takes readers back to the excitement of an America on the brink of rebellion...and a man and a woman about to clash on the battlefield of love!
Defiantly independent Aria Dunning believed in a free America—no matter what her Royalist father thought. It was distressing enough that he supported the British King, but it outraged her that he planned to marry her to an English earl! Aria was a new woman for a new country, not a pawn to be used in a dangerous political game. She simply wouldn't submit to any man she didn't love...or to any Englishman even if she did.
Then she met her intended, Tyran Rutland. Suddenly, her breath came faster and her pulse raced...even as she raised a hand to slap his smug, handsome face. He was an arrogant aristocrat who didn't understand that all men—and women—are created equal. But Rutland saw a wild beauty to tame in his arms and in his bed. He was mounting a campaign of seduction, unaware that Aria had her own plan: the complete surrender...of Rutland's loyalties and his heart!
