When Lady Helena Simpson flees an unwanted marriage to a revolting lord, she finds refuge with James, a charming, handsome man unlike any she’s ever known. Helena concocts the perfect solution to her problem. She asks—begs—James to ruin her. Surely her betrothed will repudiate her if she is no longer pure. And if all her efforts fail and she still ends up married to a horrid man until the end of her days, she will at least once have known true passion. But James is not all he seems. He is, in fact, a wicked lord with a dark fancy. When Helena awakens his desire, he becomes determined to take everything she has to offer and more. No matter the cost.

Read an Excerpt: 

 James stared at Eloise, brave, proud, innocent Eloise. He could relate to the passion in her plea. He had a sudden desire to be released from a betrothal himself. He fiddled with the corner of his napkin. “There is always the chance your betrothed won’t care if you’re ruined.” Some men did not. Her lashes fluttered. When they rose again, there was a look in her eye that sent lust coursing down his spine. It settled in his cock. “If I’m to be married to a bilious flounder of a man for the rest of my life, I should like to know passion just once. Just once, James.” “J-just once?” His voice cracked. Her smile blossomed. “Perhaps more than once.” He had to laugh, although this was clearly no laughing matter. “My dear. I would be happy to oblige.” “Excellent!” She clapped her hands with glee. Unfortunate, that, because it made her look, once again, like a little girl. But then she picked up her cup and ran her pink tongue around the rim, lapping at the wayward drops. He reached for the second bottle. She held out her cup for a refill. “You will need to show me what to do.” He almost forgot to stop pouring. Hell yes. He’d love to show her what to do. He’d love to instruct her—in elaborate detail—what, precisely, to do. Something snarled in his belly. His palm itched. He forced down that decadent desire. Chained the beast. For God’s sake. She was an innocent, a virgin. If he opened with that card, not only would she truly be ruined, she would probably hie off to the nearest nunnery and spend the remainder of her life in seclusion. Oh, he would bed her. He would despoil and beguile her, but only in the very gentlest of fashions. But his fantasies, the darkling imagery of what he would truly like to do, simmered. “Are you…” He cleared his throat. “Are you ready for your bath?” “Heavens, yes.” Once again, she clapped her hands. The childlike gesture was off-putting since, at the moment, he was thinking of sinking his cock into her body and swallowing her moans with his mouth. But he liked her enthusiasm. It also made him desire—very deeply—to tie those hands to the bedposts. So she couldn’t clap them. Why that thought made him salivate, he didn’t know. Ah hell. Of course he knew. Despite the lust snarling through him, he managed a modicum of chivalry, although it was perfunctory at best. “I’ll fashion a curtain.” Her next words nearly unmanned him. “You don’t need to.” “I b-beg your pardon?” “You don’t need to bother with a curtain.” For a shy and demure innocent, she had something of a brazen streak. “I mean, if we’re going to…you know…” “Make love?” “Yes. If we’re going to make love, you will see me naked anyway.” A frown crossed her brow. “Won’t you?” He chuckled. “Most certainly.”
