Summary

Summary

The elderly and ill fourth Viscount Longstreet summons Darius Lindsey to a discreet meeting, where he proposes the means for Darius to extricate himself from a life of shame and repay his family's debts. William offers him a chance at redemption: Spend a month with his wife, Lady Vivian; get her with child; and he can retire from his life of degradation. As weeks pass, Darius makes love to Vivian but also teaches her how to deal with the world after William has died. Vivian cannot comprehend what Darius has done to safeguard his family or why he protects her from those who would cause her harm. When the time comes, will he be able to prove the depth of his love for her and their child?

“Burrowes creates her usual intelligent characters, exciting chemistry, and flowing dialogue.” Publishers Weekly
“Burrowes’ minor characters are often as strong as the hero and heroine, and Lord Longstreet is a great example. This rising author handles powerful romance and complicated family life with skill in romances with great appeal. Her readers will enjoy this tale and will be pleased to see mention of the Windhams. Fans of Sarah MacLean will also enjoy Burrowes.” Booklist
“Roger Hampton’s deep, rich voice is a pleasure to listen to as he spins this clever and lovely tale…Hampton’s portrayal of Darius is mesmerizing. He effortlessly imprints the character with a sexy and slightly mocking voice, a strong sense of honor, humor, and reluctantly developing feelings of love. Hampton’s depictions of the villainess, the slimy stepfather, the elderly, wise husband, and the sweet children are also outstanding.” AudioFile
